Longtime horse trainer Steve Specht doesn’t mind making the long haul for his passion

One of his two horses, Tomlin, at 15-1, probably looks overmatched in Saturday’s Grade 2 $200,000 Las Virgenes Stakes for 3-year-old fillies, one of three graded stakes on the card. It’s because of the presence of Bellafina, an Eclipse Award finalist and on a very short list of best 3-year-old fillies in the country. But Tomlin finished third in the Grade 2 Santa Ynez behind Bellafina and Mother Mother about a month ago at Santa Anita. And in that race, she seemed a little green with room to improve.
