Santa Anita: Layoff no problem for Cayambe


Cayambe, making his first start since July, pulled a 30-1 upset in Sunday's eighth race for $25,000 claimers on the hillside turf course. Ridden by Alonso Quinonez, Cayambe ran about 6 1-2 furlongs on the hillside turf course in 1:12.53, winning by a half-length over Hewitts. Backbackbackgone was third in the field of 10.

Jockey Tyler Baze, who rode Backbackbackgone, filed an objection against the winner, alleging interference in the stretch.

Giganticus, the 2-1 favorite, was pulled up and was reported as unsound in his left foreleg, according to track stewards. He was claimed by Bill Spawr. Giganticus was vanned off.
