Albany, CA (June 12, 2021) – This Is the One, the 4-year-old daughter of Smiling Tiger, earned her second victory of the season in the nightcap on the next-to-last day of the Golden Gate Fields.
The $40,240 allowance going six furlongs over the Tapeta drew a field of nine. Breaking mid-pack from the outside post, This Is the One settled in five lengths off the pace down the backstretch. Coming three wide around the turn and into the stretch, she closed resolutely to take the lead inside the final sixteenth and cleared the rest by a length and one-half.
This Is the One has won or placed in five of her eight career starts and she has earned $75,044 for her owner/breeders Joseph Stiglich and Lloyd Grant. Trained by Steve Specht, she is out of the winning Sky Mesa mare, Sienna Sky.
