Santa Anita: Winner is vanned off


Resplendently, the winner of Friday's third race, was vanned off after an easy win in a starter allowance over a mile on turf.

Resplendently ($11.40) drew off to win by 6 3-4 lengths, but there was concern about the condition of his right foreleg, which led to him being pulled up on the backstretch after the race. Resplendently ran a mile on turf in 1:35.95.

Ridden by Brice Blanc, Resplendently outfinished 20-1 Captain Beau, with 95-1 Warren's Warehouse third. The $1 trifecta (6-9-11) returned $2,252.80. Add 32-1 Leyva Man who finished fourth and the $1 superfecta returned $23,578.40. Gregor, the 3-2 favorite, finished fifth.

Resplendtly won the first leg of a pick six that drew a pool of $145,593.
