Flashy Ways is 2 for 2 in her career, including the above win in the Surfer Girl Stakes.

Flashy Ways will be supplemented to the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf for $100,000, which doesn’t include entry fees, according to trainer Richard Baltas.

Flashy Ways, who is based at Hollywood Park, is unbeaten in two starts, both under Joe Talamo. She defeated $50,000 maidens at first asking at Del Mar and then captured Santa Anita’s prep for the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf, the $100,000 Surfer Girl Stakes, with ease from off the pace while earning an 80 Beyer Speed Figure.

“She bounced out of her [last] race really well,” Baltas said. “I’m very happy with her right now. Talamo is excited. He’s going to ride her back.”

Baltas said it was no surprise that Flashy Ways took to the turf in the Surfer Girl.

“One of the reasons that we bought her is because I really loved her pedigree,” Baltas explained. “She’s out of a Carson City mare, and the second dam is a stakes-producing mare by Theatrical. The third dam is the [grand-dam] of Precious Kitten and Kitten’s Joy. That whole family is monster on the grass and long.”

Baltas said Flashy Ways showed some potential before she debuted on the Polytrack.

“When I ran her the first time at Del Mar, I knew she could run, but I didn’t know how good she was,” Baltas recalled. “I told the rider she’s a little slow at the beginning, but that she’ll come running. After getting stopped at the three-eighths pole, she won by five.”

Longshot Moonwalk won the final Win and You’re In race, the Grade 3 Jessamine at Keeneland, in a blanket finish over Kitten’s Point and Summer of Fun. Moonwalk earned just a 68 Beyer, suggesting that the race wasn’t all that strong compared to the other two Win and You’re In events run in North America.

Spring Venture received an 83 Beyer while landing Woodbine’s Grade 2 Natalma, which has been the most successful prep for the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf in recent years. Watsdachances earned an 81 Beyer for winning the Grade 3 Miss Grillo impressively over yielding ground at Belmont.
