Monrovia tough return spot for Ageless


ARCADIA, Calif. – Under normal circumstances, a $100,000 stakes restricted to fillies and mares is considered an easier spot than a $1 million Breeders’ Cup race open to either gender. But the Grade 2 Monrovia Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita drew an outstanding field of female turf sprinters in a downhill sprint that comes close to matching the quality of the 2015 BC Turf Sprint at Keeneland.
