ARCADIA, Calif. &ndash; There was enough optimism about Sugarinthemorning&rsquo;s campaign as a 2-year-old last year to start her in the Grade 1 Darley Debutante at Del Mar, a race in which she finished sixth.\r\nShe later won an allowance race at Hollywood Park but was unplaced in two more starts before trainer Ron McAnally decided she needed a winter break. The vacation ends Friday, when Sugarinthemorning makes her turf debut in an optional claimer for 3-year-old fillies over about 6 1/2 furlongs on the hillside turf course, the first race at Santa Anita.\r\n&ldquo;We had high hopes for her in the beginning,&rdquo; McAnally said. &ldquo;She lost a little weight and was getting a little nervous, so we decided to give her some time off. So far, it seems to have worked.&rdquo;\r\nSugarinthemorning has yet to work on turf. The filly is by Candy Ride out of the In Excess mare Social Belle.\r\n&ldquo;I really feel like she&rsquo;ll like it,&rdquo; McAnally said.\r\nThe field of nine has six other fillies with stakes experience, including Scarlet Starlet, who can claim such a distinction even though she was last of three in the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel Stakes here Jan. 8. She later finished sixth in an allowance race over a mile on turf but was prominent for the first six furlongs of that race.\r\nTeddy&rsquo;s Promise makes her second start on turf after a troubled ninth in the Grade 3 La Habra Stakes on the hillside turf course Feb. 21.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s a bit immature but she&rsquo;s getting it together,&rdquo; trainer David Hofmans said. &ldquo;I thought this might be a bit quick back, but she didn&rsquo;t do much in her last start. This looks like a good start for her.&rdquo;\r\nHofmans also starts Lunch Time Diva, who won a maiden race on the hillside turf course in her first start on the surface Feb. 11. Advantage Player won a maiden race on turf Jan. 13 but has been unplaced in two subsequent starts in stakes on the course and is entered for an $80,000 claiming price.\r\nThere is one import in the field in So Belle. Trained by Ben Cecil, So Belle, a Singspiel filly, has not started since winning a six-furlong maiden race at Leicester, England, in June. She has worked steadily in recent weeks for Cecil.
