Santa Anita: Talamo doubles


Jockey Joe Talamo won his second race on Friday with Hagibis, who had little difficulty prevailing in a maiden race on the hillside turf course.

Hagibis ($9.20), the third choice in the betting, won by 4 3-4 lengths over 12-1 Checkmark in a field of 10, finishing about 6 1-2 furlongs on turf in 1:13.95. Earlier, Talamo won the second race on the 16-1 shot First Settler.

Hagibis, trained by Mike Puype, was fifth in his debut at 39-1 on March 5 with a touch of trouble. He led or disputed the lead in Friday's race.

The $1 pick 3 ending with Hagibis paid $2,037. Ellie L. ($115) won the fourth race, and O She So ($9.60) won the fifth race.
