Good question! Looks like she was Gr 2 stakes placed at 6 1/2f but was also stakes placed at 1 1/16m. Only won at 6 1/2f though.
Yes! Only a few weeks away from opening day!

An impressive winner breaking his maiden first time out for $75K a month ago, FREAKIN ROCKET remained undefeated in two starts for Yakteen, scoring an ultra impressive victory under M. Smith. The Rock Hard Ten homebred settled early, cruised up to stalk three-deep down the backside, came after the pacesetter under urging around the far turn, gained on that one into the lane, vied for command midstretch, dew well clear the final furlong. Huge rating, we’ll see how far he will run soon. KNOW MORE had one beat inside down the backstretch, came out past midstretch, no threat to the winner at any point, up at the wire to gain the place. STRONG WIND, returning off a layoff for new trainer Glatt, broke well to lead at once, showed high speed to clear off down the backside, opened up around the far turn, had little left when collared and passed by the winner midstretch, outrun the final furlong, tagged at the wire for second. Good comeback try, he will be pointed for the Real Good Deal stakes. DERRINGER was bumped at the start by TIZAPLAYER, stalked the fast pace inside, came out into the lane, no rally. WINE STOCK stalked between horses, outrun around the far turn, well beaten. TIZAPLAYER reared up and unseated the rider when fractious in the gate (he probably should have been scratched), broke in and bumped DERRINGER, trailed throughout, not persevered with the final furlong. Put a line through this race.
1. FREAKIN ROCKET 113 s 4. DERRINGER 93 s
2. KNOW MORE 100 s 5. WINE STOCK 85 s
3. STRONG WIND 98 s 6. TIZAPLAYER 66 s (+)
Freakin Rocket, unbeaten after two starts following a victory in an optional claimer for sprinters Thursday, will start on turf in the Oceanside Stakes at Del Mar on July 17.

Opening day? Dang, I may need to take the day off now...
He ran a pretty good 2nd on Friday (BHP 7th). Missed by a head.
