Soon as he threw her to the rail (in the stretch) I knew I was going to win the race. Edgar knows the filly real good; he works her every single time and if she gets behind a horse, she responds and tries to pass. I think she can (run longer) if she doesn't go too early."

I dropped in to save a little ground; when she feels the dirt in her face, she wants to go. She was, like, pulling. So I said 'Let's go.' She doesn't want to go alone. She likes the company, even in workouts."

Earlier in the afternoon, the $100,000 Tranquility Lake Stakes featured a field of 7 older fillies and mares going 1 mile on the main track. Samurai Charm was sent off as the 9-5 favorite off her third place finish in the Desert Stormer Stakes (G3) followed by a second place finish in the Great Lady M (G2) at Los Alamitos.
