The consistent turf sprinter Determinato delivered the 2,000th career victory for trainer Bill White when he scored a front-running victory in Saturday’s $50,000 Kaiser Handicap at Calder.

Sent off the 8-5 favorite under Jesus Rios, Determinato ($5.20) has now won three races in a row and improved to 6 for 9 this season. He withstood a mild rally from 5-2 second choice Silver Cloud to finish 1 3/4 lengths in front after completing five furlongs on firm turf in 55.47 seconds. Mel Beach finished third at 21-1.

A 5-year-old owned by Ron Marano, Determinato has now won 8 of 20 starts and $333,455.
