Tuscan Evening will go postward as the favorite in Saturday's $150,000 Santa Barbara Handicap over 1 1/4 miles on turf for fillies and mares at Santa Anita. She is going for her fourth consecutive win. However, she has never started over the distance of 1 1/4 miles on turf. She is the likely pacesetter, and Rafael Bejarano will likely take her to the front and try to win it wire to wire. Eclair de Lune was fourth in an optional claimer on March 18 having come over from Europe where she is graded stakes placed. Cat by the Tale has finished behind Tuscan Evening three times but has always been not too far behind each time, so if something goes wrong for Tuscan Evening, Cat by the Tale is a good alternative. General Consensus did finish 3 lengths behind Tuscan Evening last out in the Santa Ana Handicap and gets a good rider in Alex Solis. Restless Soul has been racing mostly in non graded stakes and has her work cut out for her.
