Bill Spawr, trainer of Midnight Bisou, is expected to enter the maiden in the G2 Santa Ynez Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita

The next jump she would have been in front,” Spawr said of her surging loss at Santa Anita going six furlongs last Oct. 27, and another nose setback after being bumped at the start running seven furlongs at Del Mar Nov. 18.

“She showed promise right from the start, and seven-eighths should be right in her wheelhouse,” Spawr said.

That’s what I wanted to do, I wanted to teach him. I wanted to give him a good schooling and see how he reacted. In the end he ran good, just a little green that’s it.”
