Smiling Tiger Filly Dominates Santa Anita MSW

Arcadia, CA (March 19, 2022) – The commentators on TVG repeated several times that the 4th race at Santa Anita was a competitive heat with no clear standout. No one passed this opinion onto Smiling Tiger 3-year-old filly Fancy Feline, who dominated the maiden special weight from start to finish.

A field of twelve fillies, ages three and four, lined-up to go six furlongs over the firm turf course. Funny Feline dashed away through an opening quarter in 22.17. She took her lead to more than four lengths, passing the half in 44.57. She kept her clear margin, rolling through the stretch to win for fun in 1:09.15.

Trained by Brian Koriner, Funny Feline is a third generation homebred racing for Dr. Edward C. Allred. She is out of the Unusual Heat mare, Warmth.
