The John C. Mabee Stakes is run at 1 1/8 miles on the Jimmy Durante Turf horse racing course.
Horse betting at the sportsbook on Sunday in the John C. Mabee is headlined by 2008 Del Mar Oaks winner Magical Fantasy. The horse is coming off wins in Santa Anita’s Grade II Santa Barbara Handicap and Hollywood Park’s Grade I Gamely. Horse betting tells us that Patrick Gallagher is the trainer for Magical Fantasy while Alex Solis is the jockey. Magical Fantasy has come a long way in less than a year in horse betting. She was 42-1 in horse betting odds when she won the Oaks last year. "She's just like most horses in that she's gotten bigger and stronger and more mature with the extra year," said Gallagher. "Her races have been more consistent this year."
Other horses that will challenge Magical Fantasy in horse betting include Bel Air Sizzle with jockey Alonso Quinonez, Briecat with jockey Martin Garcia, Charming Legacy with Joe Talamo in the irons, Gotta Have Her with jockey Tyler Baze, Meydan Princess with jockey David Flores, Patricia's Gem with jockey Victor Espinoza, Tuscan Evening with Joel Rosario aboard and Visit with jockey Brice Blanc. The John C. Mabee is big horse racing event since it offers an automatic berth in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf.
Magical Fantasy is trying to make a little history in horse betting. Since the John C. Mabee Stakes moved to the turf in 1970, only three fillies, Country Queen, Amorama, and Flawlessly have won the Oaks in horse racing at age 3 and won the Mabee the next year.
On Sunday in horse betting at the sports book it is likely that Tuscan Evening will get some attention as the horse has won five of six since coming to the Jerry Hollendorfer barn. Gotta Have Her has finished second and third in her two most recent stakes horse betting events. Visit was just beaten by Magical Fantasy in the Gamely so she is a contender in horse betting. Charming Legacy could be a horse betting choice as trainer Ron McAnally sends his horse in search of her first stakes win. Bel Air Sizzle goes for trainer Barry Abrams and it is also possible that Abrams will send Hot n’ Dusty as well in horse racing.
