More Than Most and jockey Deshawn Parker win the San Jacinto Stakes by 6 1/4 lengths on Friday night.

Trainer Bret Calhoun and jockey Deshawn Parker accounted for both of Sam Houston’s stakes on Friday night, when More Than Most rolled by 6 1/4 lengths in the off-the-turf San Jacinto and Kat’s Infatuation romped by 8 1/4 lengths in the Bara Lass. The races were worth $50,000 each and were restricted to horses bred in Texas.

More Than Most ($2.40) won the fifth stakes race of her career in the San Jacinto, for fillies and mares, when she led throughout the 1 1/16-mile race run in the mud. She covered the distance in 1:44.75. K One Spirit finished second, while it was another 5 1/2 lengths back to Special Rockstar in third.

More Than Most is a daughter of Indygo Mountain who races for Doug Scharbauer.

Kat’s Infatuation ($3.40) also was prominent throughout the Bara Lass, for 3-year-old fillies, dueling through an opening quarter in 22.61 seconds, then going on to win the six-furlong race in the mud in 1:11.23.  Her stablemate Gold Shock finished second, a 1 3/4 lengths clear of third-place finisher Miss Photo.

Kat’s Infatuation was winning the first stakes race of her career. She is a daughter of Silver City who races for her breeders, Wayne Sanders and Larry Hirsch. ​
