Santa Anita: Firm turf enables Winning Prize to do his best in Arcadia


ARCADIA, Calif. – Winning Prize looked like a future star when he won his United States debut last summer at Del Mar, but rain got in the way of allowing him to show his best in his next two starts. His trainer, Neil Drysdale, hit the re-set button for 2014, and Winning Prize came back blazing in his seasonal debut on Saturday at Santa Anita, scoring an impressive victory in the Grade 2, $200,500 Arcadia Stakes for older turf milers.
