When Eddie Delahoussaye was riding, he typically broke horses in the middle of the pack and saved an exciting burst of speed for the stretch. But his namesake horse #2 Delahoosee, which he owns and bred, came up empty Thursday in his stretch run against #8 Santamonicacanyon.

As the even-money favorite, Delahoosee broke well to track Santamonicacanyon down the backstretch. At the eighth pole, Delahoosee ran right up next to the leader and, with a vigorous ride by Garrett Gomez, he seemed sure to hit the wire first.

But Santamonicacanyon was game and pulled away to win by 1 1/2 lengths.

I considered betting Delahoosee, #4 Dapper Gene and #3 Gretsky, but their odds were all out of my range. I ended up with $300 on #7 Cat’s Causeway, who made no impact in his debut at 8-to-1
