Santa Anita: 'Flight' takes off


Flightofalifetime confirmed his status as a highly-promising 3-year-old with a relatively easy win in a maiden race over six furlongs in Saturday's second race.

Ridden by Martin Garcia for trainer Bob Baffert, Flightofalifetime ($2.80) led throughout through early fractions of 22.26 and 44.76 seconds and repelled a mild challenge from eventual runner-up Circle the Moon to win by 2 1-2 lengths in a quick 1:08.84.

Owned by a parternship, Flightofalifetime made his second start on Saturday. He was second to the highly-regarded Maclean's Music in his debut on March 19 when that colt won a maiden race by 7 3-4 lengths, earning a monster Beyer Speed Figure of 114.
