Misremembered sets Hoosier mark


ANDERSON, Ind. - Misremembered established a track record winning the Grade 2, at Hoosier Park on Saturday afternoon.

Trained by Bob Baffert, Misremembered stalked the early pace while three wide to the final turn. Jockey Victor Espinoza nudged Misremembered in the stretch and he responded, drawing clear and then holding off a late-charging Giant Oak to win by a half-length. He covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:40.80, breaking the 12-year-old track mark by .20 of a second.

The Indiana Derby was the first time the Southern California-based Misremembered had run over a dirt track.

"That was what we were worried about and he answered the question," said George Jacobs, who owns the ridgling with Natalie Baffert.

Espinoza said: "He is a very talented horse. For a $500,000 race I think he won it pretty easy."

Misremembered has now won 4 of 7 races.

Jacobs was not sure what is next for Misremembered.

"We were just happy we could get him in against 3-year-olds again, and now we know he obviously likes the dirt," he said. "Where he runs next will be up to the trainer."

Giant Oak, under Eddie Razo Jr., was second, with Karama third in a field of nine. Favored Win Willy finished fifth,

Misremembered returned $7.80 as the second choice in the field of nine.

Schaefer Mile: Congressional Page by three

Congressional Page won the by three widening lengths under Jose Lezcano on Saturday. The victory in the one-mile race was the first around two turns for Congressional Page, who is trained by Michael Trombetta.

Owner Larry Johnson said: "We weren't sure how he would handle two turns and we have our answer. He is a laid-back horse and he had to overcome some problems, but he just keeps getting better."

Johnson said he will look for a graded race for Congressional Page, who is a perfect 5 for 5 this year.

Let It Rock got up for second, a neck in front of Anarko in third.

The winning time was 1:34.40 and Congressional Page returned $4.40 to win as the favorite.
