After winning two of her first five starts in 2012, Book Review drove to a clear victory in the Charles Town Oaks to secure her first career stakes win for owners-breeders Gary and Mary West Stables.
At the end of 2012, Book Review moved to trainer Bob Baffert on the west coast and proved that she is one of the top females in California by winning the La Brea for her first Grade 1 win. In 2013, she finished second in two consecutive route Grade 2s before winning the A Gleam Handicap when cutting back to seven furlongs. The win was her fifth at the distance and earned her a spot in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.
