Bay Meadows: Go Ask Daisy a victor


SAN MATEO, Calif. - Go Ask Daisy ($24) won her stakes debut, wearing down the pacesetting odds-on favorite, Smoke Break, to win the $52,100 Mid-Peninsula Stakes for 2-year-old California-bred fillies at the Bay Meadows Fair.

Go Ask Daisy stayed along the rail as Flag Burner moved up to try to challenge Smoke Break in the 5 1/2-furlong race. Go Ask Daisy rallied along the rail in deep stretch as Smoke Break drifted out, and won the race by a half-length in 1:03.74, with Smoke Break holding second by a neck.
