LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) Swipe won the $85,100 Summer Juvenile Championship for 2-year-olds by a head over Mrazek on Sunday at Los Alamitos, putting brothers Kent and Keith Desormeaux in the winner's circle on closing day of the track's brief summer meet.
Ridden by Hall of Famer Kent Desormeaux and trained by his older brother Keith, Swipe ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:02.89 and paid $7.80, $4.40 and $2.80.
Mrazek returned $3.80 and $3 as the 5-2 second choice. Dubdubwatson was another 7 1/4 lengths back in third and paid $3.20 to show.
The Desormeaux brothers teamed to win the Landaluce Stakes with filly Right There on June 27 at Santa Anita.
Swipe, a son of Birdstone, earned his first career victory, just as Right There did two weeks ago. Swipe has career earnings of $88,330.
Ralis, the 8-5 favorite, finished fifth in the six-horse field.
