Santa Anita: Bejarano wins 3 straight


Jockey Rafael Bejarano won his third consecutive race in Sunday's fifth race, and is not done.

Bejarano rides Indian Firewater in the seventh, the Sir Beaufort Stakes; Alcindor in the in the eighth race, the Malibu Stakes; and morning-line favorite Gifted Student in the ninth race, a maiden claimer.

Bejarano won the third race, a starter allowance, on Valley Cat ($5.40), the fourth race on the exciting 2-year-old maiden winner The Factor ($4.80) and the fifth race, the California Breeders' Champion Stakes, on Thirtyfirststreet ($13.80). The $1 Bejarano pick 3 returned $66.10.
