ETOBICOKE, Ontario &ndash; Baganara bypassed this past Sunday&rsquo;s Woodbine Oaks in favor of Wednesday&rsquo;s fourth race, an Ontario-sired allowance for nonwinners of three, which is scheduled for 1 1/16 miles on the grass.\r\nBaganara made quite a splash when she debuted in a 1 1/16-mile maiden special in November. She rallied strongly in that restricted event to win by four lengths in 1:47.08, a time that earned her a Beyer Speed Figure of 53.\r\nWhen she reappeared in the Dec. 4 Ontario Lassie Stakes, Baganara was dismissed at 15-1, but she took her game to another level and finished second to the heavily favored Inglorious.\r\nFollowing a winter layoff, Baganara was favored in a 1 1/16-mile allowance May 13. After racing very wide most of the way, she prevailed with determination in a slow clocking of 1:47.47.\r\nRegular rider Slade Callaghan, the husband of owner/trainer Kelly Callaghan, said Baganara wasn&rsquo;t cranked up for her comeback.\r\n&ldquo;We knew she was short going into the race,&rdquo; Callaghan explained. &ldquo;She was probably a work or two short. She got hung wide the whole way and was really gutsy down the lane. I thought she ran really well. She&rsquo;s had a nice time between races now, so I hope she comes up with a big effort.&rdquo;\r\nCallaghan predicted that Baganara will take a shine to unfamiliar footing.\r\n&ldquo;She&rsquo;s never been on the turf, other than in the paddock, but I think she&rsquo;ll love it,&rdquo; said Callaghan. &ldquo;The way she moves, Kelly thinks that she&rsquo;ll like it a lot. She never really puts out in the morning, but she runs hard in the afternoon, and I find a lot of those kind of horses excel on the turf.&rdquo;\r\nIsabella Bay is taking a good grass pedigree into her first start on that surface. She is from the first crop of millionaire Strut the Stage, a multiple Grade 2 stakes winner on the turf.\r\nIsabella Bay graduated fourth time out last September, and went on to capture the Nov. 10 South Ocean, a 1 1/16-mile stakes for Ontario-sired 2-year-old fillies. She was a fading sixth in an allowance sprint in her season debut May 1.\r\nWhiskey Romance and Winning Charm finished second and third, respectively, in a May 18 allowance route on Polytrack.\r\nWhiskey Romance has a poor grass record, while Winning Charm has a second and a fourth from two turf attempts.
