Arcadia, CA (February 21, 2021) – Becca Taylor, the 3-year-old daughter of Old Topper, kept her undefeated record intact with her victory in the 6th race at Santa Anita, a $63,500 allowance going six furlongs over the main track.
Bet down as the favorite, Becca Taylor drew the outside post and was not the quickest out of the gate. A length off the leaders through the opening quarter, jockey Jessica Pyfer let her find her own stride and she quickly drew even with the leader with three furlongs to run. Neither filly gave up all the way to the wire, but Becca Taylor proved best by a neck at the finish. Her final time was just 1/5 off the winner’s clocking in the Spring Fever Stakes for older fillies two races later.
Becca Taylor has now won on the dirt and turf at Santa Anita after breaking her maiden first out at Los Alamitos. Trained by Steven Miyadi, she has earned $100,800 for owner/breeder Nick Alexander. Her dam is the winning General Meeting mare, Lady Sax.
