ARCADIA, Calif. &ndash; Trainer Jeff Bonde&rsquo;s stakes winners got away with the bare minimum over the Presidents Day weekend.\r\nSmiling Tiger won the Grade 2 San Carlos Handicap for sprinters by a nose Saturday. On Monday, Cambina rallied from last to win the Grade 3 La Habra Stakes by a nose on the hillside turf course. In between, the stable&rsquo;s Sway Away ran a game second to The Factor in Sunday&rsquo;s San Vicente Stakes for 3-year-olds.\r\nCambina led for the final stride, just catching Quiet Oasis.\r\n&ldquo;That&rsquo;ll test your mettle, that&rsquo;s for sure,&rdquo; Bonde said of Monday&rsquo;s finish. &ldquo;Thank God I took my blood pressure medicine all week.&rdquo;\r\nWhile Cambina will stay in California for two-turn turf stakes for 3-year-old fillies in coming months, Smiling Tiger will have a national campaign this spring.\r\nWith the intent of developing the five-time stakes winner into a more attractive stallion prospect, Bonde is working toward the goal of starting the 4-year-old in the $500,000 Metropolitan Mile Handicap at Belmont Park on May 30.\r\nEarlier this year, Bonde considered Smiling Tiger a candidate for the $2 million Golden Shaheen for sprinters in Dubai on March 26, but after his win in the Grade 2 San Carlos Handicap last weekend, Bonde said Dubai is out.\r\n&ldquo;My owners were very interested [in Dubai], but I feel he&rsquo;s done enough that he has sire potential,&rdquo; Bonde said. &ldquo;The Met Mile has always been a stallion-producing race.&rdquo;\r\nOwned by Alan Klein and Philip Lebherz, Smiling Tiger has won 6 of 13 starts $875,864. In the seven-furlong San Carlos, Smiling Tiger closed from the back of a field after a poor start to catch Captain Cherokee.\r\nBonde said that Smiling Tiger will have a prep race in the $150,000 Count Fleet Sprint Handicap over six furlongs at Oaklawn Park on April 14 or the $300,000 Churchill Downs Handicap over seven furlongs on May 7. In the short-term, Smiling Tiger will earn a brief vacation after making three starts in the first two months of the Santa Anita meeting.\r\n&ldquo;He needs a break,&rdquo; Bonde said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve run him hard here.&rdquo;\r\nBloemer Girl retired due to tendon injury\r\nBloemer Girl was retired on Monday morning, hours before a scheduled start in the La Habra Stakes, according to trainer Dan Hendricks.\r\nBloemer Girl won the Sweet Life Stakes in her Southern California debut and won 2 of 3 starts and $89,658. A California-bred by Bertrando, Bloemer Girl was retired because of a tendon injury and may be bred to Pleasantly Perfect, according to breeder Rick Arthur, who also is the California Horse Racing Board&rsquo;s equine medical director.\r\nBloemer Girl raced for Arthur&rsquo;s adult children, Andrew and Christa.
