Stakes Winners Meet in Pat Hyland

Buy Buy, Mama Mia Bella meet in Pat Hyland Handicap.

September 7, 2012

Kolleen Ledgerwood’s Buy Buy and Rosario Jimenez’s Mama Mia Bella, each winners on California Breeders Championship night, meet over 350 yards in the $25,000 Pat Hyland Handicap on Saturday night at Los Alamitos.

Buy Buy (Stel Corona-Aquisitive by Separatist) was claimed for $10,000 by Ledgerwood out of a winning effort at the non-winners-of-two level on June 30. Trainer Roberto Dominguez brought Buy Buy back in the California Breeders Fillies Stakes (R) and she came through, with a three-quarter-length win as the 9-5 favorite.

Mama Mia Belle (Royaltys Choice-Fed X Dash by A Classic Dash), fourth in the Kindergarten Futurity (G2), won her maiden in her fourth start in June by 1 1/4 lengths and then came back to take the California Breeders Freshman Stakes (R). She battled to a nose win as the 22-10 favorite.

The Francisco Vallejo-owned and -trained Beat This Chick (Tres Seis-Beduinos Rusty by Chicks Beduino) has been first or second in her latest four starts. She was second by a neck in the Ed Burke Juvenile (R) and comes off a conditioned allowance victory.
