ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Right There rallied to win the $125,000 Landaluce Stakes for 2-year-old fillies by 4 3/4 lengths Sunday at Santa Anita.
Ridden by Kent Desormeaux, Right There ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:05.39 and paid $13.40, $5.60 and $3.40. She is trained by Kent's brother, Keith.
''Keith needs a lot of credit for this win,'' Kent Desormeaux said.
''Keith trains them to have a big closing kick and she ran like she does in the morning.''
Alien Giant returned $4 and $3.20, while Sambamzajammin was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.20 to show.
The victory, worth $75,000, increased Right There's career earnings to $86,200 for her first win in two starts. Keith Desormeaux purchased her for $55,000 last fall at Keeneland.
In the $125,000 Santa Anita Juvenile, Found Money won by 1 3/4 lengths over stablemate Mrazek, giving trainer Doug O'Neill a 1-2 finish.
Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Found Money ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.24 and paid $11.80, $6 and $4.
Mrazek returned $5.60 and $3.60. Xingontothebone was another 2 1/4 lengths back in third and paid $4.40 to show.
Both Found Money and Mrazek are sons of Square Eddie, whose 2-year-old offspring have won seven races at the current Santa Anita meet.
''This absolutely makes me feel proud,'' said J. Paul Reddam, who bred Square Eddie and owns Found Money and Mrazek.
The victory, worth $75,000, increased Found Money's career earnings to $108,600, with two wins in as many starts.
''What a tremendous horse,'' said Nakatani, who also rode Grade 1 stakes winner Square Eddie. ''We felt my horse, Found Money, was quicker than his stablemate and we got away great.''
