Santa Anita: Misremembered is back

Email

Misremembered returned from a one-year layoff to score a convincing win in Sunday's Santana Mile.

Misremembered, the winner of the 2010 Santa Anita Handicap, won the main track race by three lengths in 1:33.50, just missing Ruhlmann's 1989 track record of 1:33.40. The record arguably would have fallen if jockey Martin Garcia had urged Misremembered in the final sixteenth. The 5-year-old horse even lost a bit of momentum late when he jumped tire tracks.

After the race, trainer Bob Baffert looked at Garcia's smile and had a question. "What's that in your teeth? Bugs?" Baffert said.
