Santa Anita: Seb Flyte is stakes-bound


Sebastian Flyte ended a four-race losing streak in graded stakes with a win in an allowance race over 1 1-8 miles on turf in Thursday's fifth race that will lead to another start in a stakes.

Sebastian Flyte will be considered for the $100,000 Inglewood Handicap over 1 1-16 miles on turf at Hollywood Park on April 24 or the $500,000 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic over 1 1-8 miles on turf at Churchill Downs on May 7, trainer Ben Cecil said.

In Thursday's race, Sebastian Flyte (Garrett Gomez) stalked the pace to the turn, reached contention with a three-wide rally and won by 1 3-4 lengths over Do It All, who overcame a touch of trouble in early stretch to finish second. Sebastian Flyte was timed in 1:48.03.

He paid $5.60 as the favorite.
