ARCADIA, Calif.- Red Outlaw overcame more than seven rivals to extend his unbeaten streak to six races in Sunday’s $93,250 Uniformity Stakes on the hillside turf course at Santa Anita.

Trainer Peter Miller said after the race that Red Outlaw battled a bruised foot earlier in the week that at one point cast doubt on whether the gelding could start. Miller had Red Outlaw entered in Saturday’s $100,000 California Flag Handicap against older horses, but opted to wait a day and run in the Uniformity against 3-year-olds.

“We were dealing with a warm foot and the extra day helped,” Miller said. “He had a little bit of a bruise. They  get sore quick and they heal quick sometimes.”

Miller said the bruise was on an inside quarter, but was not severe, allowing the gelding to be trained.

In the Uniformity Stakes, Red Outlaw was confidently ridden by jockey Edwin Maldonado. Red Outlaw led by a half-length through early fractions of 21.30 and 43.36 seconds. By the time the field crossed onto the main turf course, Red Outlaw was farther in front, leading by two lengths with a furlong to go.

Red Outlaw ($3.80) finished about 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:11.92, winning by 2 1/2 lengths over 11-1 Forever Juanito, the winner of the Desert Code Stakes on the hillside turf course in May. Street Icon (4-1) finished third, followed by Home School, Bolita Boyz, Reno Rebel, Daraybi, and Dothraki.

Red Outlaw races for a partnership led by Blinkers On Stable. A California-bred by Tribal Rule, Red Outlaw has earned $346,100. The unbeaten streak includes four consecutive stakes wins – the Baffle Stakes on the hillside turf course in February, the Real Good Deal Stakes for statebred 3-year-olds over seven furlongs at Del Mar on Aug. 1, the El Cajon Stakes over a mile against 3-year-olds in open company on Aug. 29, and the Uniformity Stakes.

“He can do a bit of everything,” Miller said. “He’s getting better and better.”
