Soi Phet wins Los Alamitos Mile in record time
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) Soi Phet won the $200,750 Los Alamitos Mile by 7 1/4 lengths in a track-record time at Los Alamitos on Saturday.
Ridden by Hall of Famer Kent Desormeaux, Soi Phet ran the distance on the main track in 1:33.95, bettering the old mark of 1:34.50 he set in winning the Bertrando Stakes on July 3.
Soi Phet paid $11.60, $4.20 and $3.60. Even-money favorite Masochistic returned $3.40 and $3, while Tonito M. was another 2 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $4.60 to show.
Soi Phet has eight wins in 29 career starts and earnings of $472,686. Seven of those victories and over $400,000 in earnings have come in the 13 races since he was claimed for $16,000 by his current owners over 15 months ago at now-closed Betfair Hollywood Park.
