Highly-regarded juvenile filly Beholder rolled to an impressive 11-length romp in an allowance race at Santa Anita on Thursday, which has her connections seriously considering the Breeders' Cup.

The 2-year-old daughter of Henny Hughes ran the six furlongs in 1:09 flat, the fastest time of the meet so far. After the race trainer Richard Mandella said that if the filly comes out of the race ok, she could run next in either the $500,000 BC Juvenile Sprint against males or the $2 million BC Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), both on Nov. 2.

Beholder, who is a half sister to 2007 CashCall Futurity (gr. I) winner, Into Mischief, improved her overall record to two wins from four starts. She entered Thursday's race off a narrow nose defeat to Executiveprivilege in the Del Mar Debutante (gr. I).
