A Grade 1 win in the Rodeo Drive at Santa Anita was the culmination of a tremendous ascent for Vasilika, who notched her seventh consecutive win in September. Previous scores for the turf specialist also include the John C. Mabee S. (G2) at Del Mar.
Vasiika's career has been marked by durability, with 26 career starts over three seasons of racing, including a dozen wins and 19 in-the-money finishes with a bankroll of more than $600,000. Her 2018 campaign has included eight wins from nine starts as a four-year-old.
By Skipshot, Vasilika is out of the Marquetry mare La Belle Marquet, a full-sister to Stakes winner and Graded Stakes-placed Chris's Bad Boy. She is offered as a racing or broodmare prospect.
