Results, Santa Anita Sunday Race 4 — lost $200

Jockey Joel Rosario got nailed on the wire by #2 Saint's Crown

Jockey Joel Rosario got nailed on the wire by #2 Saint's Crown

You almost never see it.

A horse sets the pace down the backstretch then clearly gets passed in the lane. But all of a sudden, the runner who was seemingly left for dead, wakes up and comes with a furious rally to win the race.

However, that’s just what happened when #2 Saint’s Crown shot up the inside to catch #4 Justalittletipsy on the wire.  Ridden by Pedro Arambula, who notched just his third win of the year, Saint’s Crown took the field down the backstretch and led on the turn.

But Joel Rosario and Justalittletipsy kicked it into gear and took over by a half a length at the top of the stretch. This filly seemed poised to pull away.

But Saint’s Crown was competitive and wanted the victory more. She kept battling on the inside and prevailed.

I bet $200 on #4 Justalittletipsy and was prepared to bet $300 on #7 Xtraordinary, but she fell just below my 2/1 minimum price.
