The SportsXchange

With a late flurry down the final stretch, Hear the Ghost upset the favored Flashback to win Saturday's $300,000 San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park.

Jockey Corey Nakatani rode Hear the Ghost to the victory in the 1 1/16-mile event, covering it in a speedy 1:42.34, and becomes the favorite for the next big race at that particular track, the Santa Anita Derby on April 6.

It was second win in three starts for Hear the Ghost, trained by Jerry Hollendorfer. The three-year-old gelding earned $180,000 for the win. He had previously won in mid-December at Hollywood Park and was runner-up in the San Pedro Stakes at Santa Anita on Jan. 21.

Hear the Ghost paid $13.80, $4.60 and $3.60. Runner-up Flashback, who went off at even odds, paid $2.60 and $2.40, while third-place finisher Tiz a Minister paid $4.00 to show.

Flashback is among the early favorites for May's Kentucky Derby, but Hear the Ghost is now in Derby conversations as well with Saturday's triumph.
