Final furlong

■ Trainer Todd Beattie said Sunday that Taris, brilliant winner of the Grade II Raven Run on Saturday, came out of her nine-length victory "100 percent."

While Beattie was unsure where Taris would run next, he did rule out heading to the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint in Santa Anita Park.

"I own a quarter of the filly and I can tell you that is definitely not happening," Beattie said. "However, we can circle next year when the Breeders' Cup is at Keeneland."

■ Ashbrook Farm's Southern Honey, runner-up in the Grade II Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes, will be pre-entered Monday in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, trainer Rusty Arnold confirmed Sunday.

"The filly is doing good and she came out of her work yesterday great," Arnold said.

The winner of Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf has come out of the TCA the last five years.
