Blingo – was the 1/2 length winner of today’s GII San Antonio Stakes at Santa Anita Park

The early pace duel between Blueskiesnrainbows and Game On Dude , did set up as promised, but it was Blingo , who had it when it counted most in the stretch as he held off a very game long shot in Imperative, by a 1/2 length to take today’s, $300,000, GII San Antonio, for 4yo and up, going 1 1/8 mile over a “fast” Santa Anita Park main track!

Full Results

Imperative, was back that 1/2 length for 2nd, after what we thought was a pre-mature move deep on the backstretch, squeezing in at the rail beside the dueling front-runners for a 3 across far turn firing line!

American Blend , got up for 3rd, back several more lengths and a head in front of Majestic Harbor , who filled out today’s super!

Game On Dude , Blueskiesnrainbows and Willyconker,  filled out the rest of this field, in that order, in an epic pace collapse here today! The “Show” payouts below tell the tale!
