Arcadia, CA (October 20, 2023) – Satellite Heart, the 2-year-old Accelerate filly co-bred by Harris Farms and Don Valpredo, took her young career record to two wins and a second in three starts after her victory in the 6th race at Santa Anita, a six furlong allowance over the fast main track.
The chestnut miss dashed away from post three and was quickly on the outside by an equally ambitious foe. Their battle lasted until the top of the stretch. A fresh challenger loomed, but Satellite Heart pinned her ears and would not let her by. She crossed under the line a half-length best in a very game effort.
Satellite Heart was purchase from the Harris Farms’ consignment at the 2022 Fasig-Tipton Fall California Yearling and Horses of All Ages Sale for $35,000 by Todd Tomazic. She races for the partnership of Valle Las Palmas LLC, Robert T. Cannon, Kelley Goodwin and Timothy Goodwin and she is trained by Alfredo Marquez. She was produced by the Unusual Heat mare, Tahitian Lagoon, a granddaughter of the Harris Farms champion, Soviet Problem.
