LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) Street Fancy rallied to win the $301,000 Starlet for 2-year-old fillies by one length Saturday at Los Alamitos.

Ridden by Hall of Famer Mike Smith, Street Fancy ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.42 and paid $14.60, $5.20 and $3.80.

Stays in Vegas returned $4.60 and $3.80. Sutton's Smile was another three lengths back in third and paid $8.80 to show at 32-1 odds. Phil D'Amato trains the winner and the third-place finisher.

Pacific Heat, the 2-1 favorite, finished eighth in the nine-horse field. She had won her first two races by a combined 18 3/4 lengths.

Street Fancy acted up in the post parade for the Grade 1 race.

''She's anxious before the race starts, but once she leaves there she's cool and she was very relaxed today,'' Smith said. ''We're actually still figuring each other out and that's what was happening in the early part of the race. I wasn't concerned about coming up the inside in the stretch because there was plenty of room and she was very focused.''

Street Fancy has career earnings of $223,200, with two wins in three starts.

In the $101,000 King Glorious Stakes for 2-year-olds, even-money favorite Found Money won by 1 1/4 lengths.

Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Found Money ran a mile in 1:37.46 and paid $4, $3 and $2.60. The colt was fourth in the $1 million Delta Jackpot three weeks ago in Louisiana for trainer Doug O'Neill.

Glory Bound returned $11 and $8.40, while Tough It Out was another 2 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.80 to show.

Found Glory has career earnings of $286,100, with three wins in seven starts.
