Bendable wins Beverly J Lewis Stakes at Los Alamitos

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) Bendable led all the way to win the $75,000 Beverly J. Lewis Stakes by 2 1/4 lengths Sunday at Los Alamitos, giving Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith a sweep of the weekend stakes races.

Bendable ran six furlongs in 1:08.84 and paid $9 and $2.40 as the 7-2 second choice.

Enola Gay, the 1-5 favorite, returned $2.10. Everqueen was another 3 1/4 lengths back in third. There was no show wagering because of the five-horse field.

The victory, worth $45,000, increased Bendable's career earnings to $127,000, with three wins in four starts for Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella.

Smith won the $75,000 E.B. Johnston Stakes with Soi Phet on Saturday.

Jockey Stewart Elliott rode three winners on the card.
