A.P. Adventure remains unbeaten

A.P. Adventure wins the Grade 1, $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes at Santa Anita on Sunday to remain undefeated in three career starts.

ARCADIA, Calif. - A.P. Adventure remained unbeaten in three starts after weaving her way between rivals in the stretch of Sunday's $250,000 at Santa Anita.

The victory in the Grade 1 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies left A.P. Adventure's connections - owners Bob and Beverly Lewis, trainer Wally Dollase and jockey Alex Solis - wondering what she will accomplish in the future.

"She's so laid back," Solis said. "She has so much to learn and that's the scary thing about it. She's just having fun."

A.P. Adventure ($4.20) ran a mile in 1:36.50, finishing a half-length in front of Hollywood Story. Friendly Michelle held on for third.

On the final turn, it appeared A.P. Adventure might not hit the board. She received two sharp reminders from Solis before the quarter pole, while racing four lengths behind pacesetter Friendly Michelle, and was slow to respond.

Entering the stretch, A.P. Adventure was passed by Hollywood Story. Solis angled A.P. Adventure to the inside, between Friendly Michelle and Rahy Dolly, and quickly got a response.

"You couldn't beat the ride," Dollase said. "She ran in spurts. She's got talent, but she has to put it to better use."

A.P. Adventure has earned $241,080. She beat maidens in her debut last October and won her first stakes in the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel Stakes on Jan. 4.

She will be pointed for the $300,000 Santa Anita Oaks on March 13, a race expected to draw Halfbridled, the 2003 champion 2-year-old filly.

The field was reduced to eight after Wildwood Flower fell in the paddock and was scratched.

Super High by a nose

Super High won the $108,000 Pro or Con Handicap by a nose over Moscow Burning, the 2-5 favorite.

Super High ($10.40) stalked pacesetter Bold Roberta on the backstretch and took the lead on the final turn. She led by a length over Moscow Burning at the eighth-pole and was fully extended to prevail. Ridden by Tyler Baze, Super High finished a mile on turf in 1:35.35.

Owned by Harris Farms and trained by Carla Gaines, Super High won her sixth stakes in the Pro or Con, which was restricted to California-bred fillies and mares.

Tsigane wins Daytona Handicap

Tsigane is bound for the $350,000 Kilroe Mile on March 6 after winning his first stakes in the U.S. in the $71,000 Daytona Handicap on the hillside turf course.

Tsigane ($5.80) finished a half-length in front of Glick, running about 6 1/2 furlongs on turf in 1:12.49.
