City to City scores in Providencia

CITY TO CITY (City Zip) pulled off the half-length victory on Saturday while making her graded bow in the $150,000 Providencia S. (G2) at Santa Anita. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and ridden by Joel Rosario, the chestnut miss came out on the turn and five wide into the stretch, rallied down the center of the lane and just got up to complete 1 1/8 miles on the firm turf in 1:47.

As the 9-2 fourth pick, City to City was worth $11.60, $6 and $3.80 to her supporters. Andina (Ire) (Singspiel [Ire]) gave back $5.60 and $3.40 at 4-1 for holding 5-2 favorite In the Slips (More Than Ready) by a length to third. Show paid $2.60 and it was another 2 1/4 lengths back to pacesetter Camille C (Roman Dancer), who posted fractions of :23 2/5, :47 4/5, 1:11 3/5 and 1:35 2/5. The $1 exotics totaled $26 (exacta), $79 (trifecta), $747.10 (2-5-6-9 superfecta).

Warren's Skater (Affirmative), Warren's Jitterbug (Affirmative), Cozi Rosie (Pleasantly Perfect), Antares World (Decarchy), Pulpit Magic (Pulpit) and Hot Citizen (Proud Citizen) completed the order of finish.

City to City captured her initial try on the turf at Golden Gate Fields in mid-January, then ran third in the grassy Sweet Life S. at Santa Anita. Prior to this one, the chestnut three-year-old was a 1 1/2-length winner of the China Doll S., and improved her line to 11-5-2-2, $193,054, with this score.

Bred in Kentucky by Dr. D. Michael Cavey Jr. and campaigned by William DeBurgh, Hollendorfer and Mark DeCominico LLC, City to City sold to her current connections for $50,000 as a Washington September yearling. She is out of the winning Stormbow (Storm Cat), who has also produced an unnamed yearling colt by Yonaguska.

This is the same family as dual Canadian champion Rainbow Connection (Halo), herself the dam of multiple Canadian champion Rainbows for Life (Lyphard), Group 2 heroine Colour Chart (Mr. Prospector) and the unraced Barai (Blushing Groom [Fr]). Colour Chart would go on in the breeding shed to produce champion two-year-old filly and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) queen Tempera (A.P. Indy) as well as multiple Group 3 victor and Group 1-placed Equerry (St. Jovite). Barari is responsible for multiple Grade 1 hero White Heart (GB) (Green Desert).
