Straight Faced wins the $80,000 Birdonthewire Stakes at Calder on Saturday.

MIAMI - Straight Faced ($9.40) kept his perfect record intact after drawing away to a convincing 5 1/2-length decision over Drums of Thunder in the $80,000 Birdonthewire Stakes. Green Vegas, the 6-5 favorite along with stablemate Super Envoy, finished a tiring third.

The win was the second in as many starts for Straight Faced, a 2-year-old son of Straight Man who is trained by Steve Dimauro for owner Walter R. Donnelly. Leading jockey Manoel Cruz rode the winner. Straight Faced's final time of 1:05.17 for 5 1/2 furlongs established a stakes record.
