Fire With Fire – winning an injury marred GII San Luis Rey Stakes at Santa Anita today!

Fire With Fire, was well rated on the lead by jockey Tyler Baze, then outdueled stablemate Lucayan, in deep stretch to record his first graded stakes win in the $200,000, GII San Luis Rey Stakes, for 4yo and up turfers, at 1 1/2 mile over the Santa Anita turf course today!

Full Results, – Race Replay

Lucayan, was 2nd by 1/2 length and a nose in front of Temeraine, filled in the final board spot!

This race was marred by the break down of Vagabond Shoes , on the backstretch who was pulled up at about the half mile pole and was later vanned off the course. Late word was that Hronis Racing’s 7-year-old Irish-bred gelding had been euthanized after suffering a cannon bone injury to his left hind. He’ll be missed and our thoughts go out to the connections!
