Home Sweet Aspen is set for her Grade 1 debut in the La Brea Stakes over 7 furlongs on the dirt at Santa Anita on Saturday, Dec. 31, reports the Daily Racing Form. The race is led by Turbulent Descent, winner of Saratoga's Grade 1 Test Stakes in August.
Home Sweet Aspen, winner of the Louis Rowan Stakes on Oct. 9, exits a poor finish in the Cool Air Stakes over six furlongs on the turf at Hollywood Park. Trainer John Sadler dismissed that performance saying she just doesn't like the grass.
“Physically, she's fine and has trained well,” Sadler said. “I expect her to run back to form.”
