AFTER TWICE LOSING WHEN FAVORED, CITY TO CITY TURNS THE TABLES UNDER NAKATANI


ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 20, 2012) – The beaten favorite in her two previous starts, City to City finally got the money by a desperate head over Up In Time Monday in a driving finish to climax Santa Anita’s Grade II, $150,000 Buena Vista Handicap after covering the one mile on turf in 1:34.19.

With Corey Nakatani aboard for the first time in the 5-year-old mare’s 24-race career, City to City charged to a narrow lead in deep stretch before stoutly resisting the closing bid by Up In Time and jockey Brice Blanc on the extreme outside. It was another half-length back to Wild Mia and David Flores in the blanket finish.
