Santa Anita: Hameildaeme rallies

Email

Hameildaeme, winless in her last seven starts in the last 21 months, rallied wide under jockey Patrick Valenzuela to win Thursday's fifth race, a $25,000 claimer over a mile on turf.

Hameildaeme ($8.20) finished three-quarters of a lengths in front of 8-5 favorite Rule the Storm in the field of 10.

Hameildaeme won the third leg of a pick six that began with a carryover of $126,305. Bettors added $774,384 to the pool on Thursday. The $1 pick 3 combining the first three winners of the pick six races - Celtic New Year ($6), Off the Wall ($6.60) and Hameildaeme - returned $64. Only Celtic New Year was favored.

Rule the Storm was claimed in a two-way shake by trainer Mike Mitchell. Rule the Storm was claimed from Mitchell for $40,000 at Del Mar last summer and subsequently won the Queen of the Green Handicap at Turf Paradise in October.
