    Gary Stevens wins another on Candy Boy in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes at SA race 8-GII (1-1/16 mile, $200,000 derby prep). Mike Smith and Midnight Hawk didn't have the final kick and ended up third. Chiitu with Martin Garcia took a close second.
  • Gary will ride Enterprising on Saturday in the El Camino Real derby at Golden Gate.

    FAVORED ENTERPRISING OVERCOMES TROUBLE TO WIN $75,000 PASADENA STAKES BY NOSE AS POTENT TEAM OF STEVENS AND PROCTOR CLICK AGAIN
    ARCADIA, Calif. (March 22, 2014)—Heavily favored Enterprising overcame trouble into the far turn to win Saturday’s $75,000 Pasadena Stakes by a nose under Gary Stevens, covering one mile on turf in 1:33.75.
    With the temporary rail set at 15 feet, Stevens broke from the inside in a field of nine 3-year-olds and worked his way into fourth position going to the three eighths pole, but had to steady sharply between horses as Diamond Bachelor, with Mike Smith up, closed what appeared to be a small hole at that critical point of call.

  • Gary is lucky i'm not at the track today. I'd be on the rail, cussing him out for using a buzzer . . .

    and not telling me.
  • Mark, you would probably not be alone.

    Stevens was happy when he learned that the son of Candy Ride , winner of the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (gr. II), drew post 6 for Saturday's 1 1/8-mile event for 3-year-olds at Santa Anita Park.

    Will Take Charge survives inquiry
    By Claire Novak | Bloodhorse Updated: April 13, 2014
    Willis Horton's Will Take Charge notched his first victory of the season in the $600,000 Oaklawn Handicap April 12 at Oaklawn Park, surviving multiple claims of foul and a lengthy inquiry.
    The 3-year-old champion of 2013 raced behind the honest early pace of :23.47 seconds, :47.68 seconds, and 1:11.63 set by Right to Vote and Razorback Handicap winner and 3-1 second choice Golden Lad through the first six furlongs of the 1 ⅛ mile test. He then launched his challenge on the outside as they turned for home, first brushing with Golden Lad, ridden by Gary Stevens, then drifting in near the eighth pole while getting a mile in 1:36.87.
    Through the final furlong, heavily favored Will Take Charge received strong right-handed urging from Saez while battling with Revolutionary, with Mike Smith aboard, until drawing clear by three-quarters of a length.
    Saez had to argue against claims from both Stevens and Mike after Smith and WinStar Farm's Revolutionary swung out to finish second.
