Santa Anita: Bejarano wins four

Email

Jockey Rafael Bejarano won his fourth race on Friday aboard Long Legged Lovely in the eighth race , holding off a late run from Suitable Attire to win a maiden claimer over a mile for fillies and mares.

Bejarano won the first, third and fourth races on the eight-race program. He lost with his only other mount, Gumption, in the seventh.

Long Legged Lovely ($5.40) was fifth on the final turn and rallied wide through the stretch. She was fully extended to hold off Suitable Attire, whose rally fell short by a nose.

Suitable Attire was ridden by Joe Talamo, who had a frustrating day. He finished behind Bejarano in the third and fourth races, losing those races by a nose and neck.

Long Legged Lovely's vcitory resulted in a pick six payoff of $19,888. Had Suitable Attire won, there would have been a carryover in excess of $59,000. Through Friday, the 22nd day of the meeting, there have been just two carryovers at the meeting.
