‘Good Race’ expected of Neige Blanche in Astra

At 0h05, on January 17, 2022 By SANTA ANITA

Neige Blanche has run nine times in the United States, all in stakes, four of them Grade I’s.

The versatile French-bred mare can stalk or attend the pace, depending on the shape of the race. Her forte is turf marathons, her longest in the U.S. at a mile and a half when she won the Grade III Santa Barbara Stakes at Santa Anita last May.

She broke the mold however at odds of 11-1 in her most recent start last Nov. 25, winning Del Mar’s Grade III Red Carpet Stakes going wire to wire at 1 3/8 miles.

Neige Blanche (White Snow) may put forth a similar effort in the Grade III Astra Stakes, Monday’s holiday feature on turf for older fillies and mares, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
