The field may have been small, but Chasing Yesterday proved she was the best of the three competitors in Monday's Desi Arnaz S. with a comfortable length and a half victory for the 2-year-old filly.

Monday's win was the second stakes victory for the filly who is know as 2015 Horse of the Year American Pharoah's little sister. 

She captured the Anoakia S. last time out and has now won three of four starts and earned $144,250 for her owner/breeder Jane Lyon and trainer Bob Baffert.

After getting pinched back slightly at the start, Chasing Yesterday was a couple lengths from the front on the backstretch, but loomed up three-wide entering the turn. The trio of fillies was side-by-side until upper stretch, when Chasing Yesterday began to pull clear and was in full control to the wire.

She finished the seven furlongs in 1:23.81.

“I can't explain what she means to me,' Lyon said of Chasing Yesterday. “We're so proud of her today. I was almost afraid to watch.”

By leading sire Tapit, Chasing Yesterday is out of Littleprincessemma, who was the Broodmare of the Year in 2015 and was purchased by Lyon's Summer Wind Farm in 2014.
