Southern California is not just the home to some of the top Kentucky Derby hopefuls each spring. The circuit also claimed a group of standout fillies and mares recently that included Beholder, Songbird and Stellar Wind. The aforementioned trio is, for the most part, gone to the breeding shed now, except for Stellar Wind. Her scheduled career finale is in the $16 million Pegasus World Cup on Jan. 27 at Gulfstream Park.
— $100,000 Grade III Las Cienegas Stakes, fillies and mares, 4-year-olds and up, 6 1/2 furlongs (turf) DOWN THE STRETCH— Santa Anita’s new “Ship and Stay” program has a giant fan in trainer Robert Falcone Jr., who has won with two of the 31 “new” horses the innovative plan has attracted during the first 13 days of the winter meet. Ship and Stay rewards owners and trainers who bring horses to Santa Anita from out of state with bonuses.
Now that the scare is over and it apparently turned out to be nothing more than a minor setback, it’s full speed ahead for trainer Mick Ruis and Bolt d’Oro, his prized 3-year-old colt that sits atop many Kentucky Derby lists. Ruis believes Bolt d’Oro got cast in his stall about 10 days ago, leading to some “body soreness” and, as a result, a few missed days of training. Nothing major, but a scare nonetheless. “The thing is, it’s our money,” Ruis said.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
