West Point Thoroughbreds’ 3-year-old filly Street Surrender put in a sparkling debut performance under Victor Espinoza on Saturday at Santa Anita Park.
The pretty chestnut daughter of Street Boss showed a tremendous amount of maturity, coming up the rail at the top of the stretch after being in tight behind horses most of the way.
“I had to wait behind horses, then steadied, but when I asked her she was push button and went right up the rail,” said Espinoza. “The filly does everything so easily.”
Trained by Craig Dollase, Street Surrender was purchased by the West Point buying team at the 2015 OBS April 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale.
“Street Surrender is special filly,” said West Point president Terry Finley. “I thought we were in trouble when Victor was standing up on her on the turn, but she overcame the bad trip and showed so much class and maturity. She has us dreaming about the big races for three-year-old fillies later this summer, but we’re going to take our time and develop her properly. Congratulations to all the Partners.”
She’ll face winners in either a first level allowance at Santa Anita or the $75,000 Surfside Stakes run at six furlongs on the dirt on April 24 at Los Alamitos.
