ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Awesome Baby led all the way in a half-length victory Saturday at Santa Anita in the $200,000 Santa Ynez Stakes for 3-year-old fillies.
Ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, Awesome Baby ran six furlongs in 1:16.62 and paid $12.60 and $4.40. There was no show wagering because of the four-horse field.
Taste Like Candy returned $2.80. Crushed Velvet, the 4-5 favorite, was third. Hall of Famer Bob Baffert trains both Awesome Baby and Crushed Velvet.
The victory, worth $120,000, increased Awesome Baby's career earnings to $170,250 with two wins in four starts.
