Santa Anita: Gomez doubles

Email

Jockey Garrett Gomez won his second race on Saturday aboard the improving Cambina in the $150,000 Providencia Stakes for 3-year-old fillies.

Cambina, sent off favored, won her third consecutive stakes in the Grade 2 Providencia, her first start over 1 1-8 miles on turf. Gomez guided Cambina from seventh on the turn to win by three-quarters of a length over Whisper Louise, who had not started since finishing third in the Montrose Stakes at Newmarket last October.

Gomez praised Cambina's late kick, which was on display in the Providencia. Cambina weaved her way between fillies in early stretch, was third with a furlong remaining and closed brilliantly in the final furlong.
