Santa Anita: Abrams doubles


Trainer Barry Abrams had a perfect afternoon on Thursday, winning with both of his starters - Burns ($10.60) in the second race and Party With Brando ($4.40).

Burns had an ideal trip against maidens, stalking the pace of Redemsky for the first half-mile before catching Spud Spivens, who led by a length in the stretch. Burns won by a half-length in 1:36.91.

Party With Brando was a convincing winner of an allowance race for statebred females over 1 1-16 miles, drawing off to win by 4 1-2 lengths over Warren's Got Game. Party With Brando has won 4 of 34 statrs. Last year, she had two wins in 23 starts, perhaps the most active campaign of any horse on this circuit.
