‘Something Special’: Venetian Harbor Breezes For Fantasy Stakes At Oaklawn

Venetian Harbor breezed after the first break Friday morning at Oaklawn Park, covering 5 furlongs in 1:00.80 in advance of the $400,000 Fantasy Stakes (G3) for 3-year-old fillies May 1. Under Tyler Baze, Venetian Harbor galloped out 6 furlongs in 1:13 and 7 furlongs in 1:25.

“She worked phenomenal,” Baze said after getting on Venetian Harbor for the first time. “He (trainer Richard Baltas) said just cruise the five-eighths and make sure she gets something out of it – galloping out. She galloped out in 1:12 and change, 1:25, 1:38, something like that. She’s something special. Very nice filly.”

Aimee Dollase, who oversees Baltas’ Oaklawn string, termed the work “perfect,” adding Venetian Harbor will probably work a half-mile next week in preparation for the 1 1/16-mile Fantasy, which is also expected to attract, among others, 2-year-old filly champion British Idiom.

A daughter of Munnings, Venetian Harbor has won 2 of 3 starts overall. She broke her maiden by 10 ¾ lengths Dec. 29 at Santa Anita and was a 9 ¼-length winner of her last start, the $200,000 Las Virgenes Stakes (G2), Feb. 8 at Santa Anita.
