Saturday stakes recaps (02/14/04)


* Magnificent Val, the even-money favorite, sat off the pace for three-quarters of a mile, then went for the lead around the far turn and drew of to a 4 3/4-lengths victory over Fanzocz in the $50,000 Glendale Handicap at Turf Paradise. Moonlit Maddie was another three-quarters of a length back in third. Magnificent Val ($4) is trained by Jeff Mullins

* Turfway canceled racing Saturday, citing uneven, thawing track conditions caused by the fluctuating temperature.
