Your Bluffing romps in Campbell

Your Bluffing wins the 52nd running of the $100,000 John B. Campbell Breeders' Cup Handicap at Laurel Park on Saturday.

Your Bluffing solidified his status as the hottest older horse on the grounds at Laurel Park by dominating Saturday's 52nd running of the $100,000 .

A 6-year-old gelding ridden by Mario Pino for trainer Mike Trombetta, Your Bluffing ($2.40) cruised to a 6 3/4-length victory over four rivals to extend his winning streak to five races and improve his record over Laurel's main track to 13 for 18.

Overall, Your Bluffing is now 14 for 33 lifetime for earnings of $371,045. Dating back to last season, he has won 8 of his last 12 starts. One of the losses came in the 2005 Campbell, in which he was sixth of seven. Since October, when he defeated high-priced optional claimers, Your Bluffing has been unbeatable, winning at distances ranging from six furlongs to 1 1/8 miles.

"Your Bluffing is such a dependable horse," Trombetta said. "He just keeps giving and giving. We're having a lot of fun with him. He was a good 3-year-old, he was a better 4-year-old, and he's better than he's ever been.

"He looks nothing like he did at age 3. He's really grown up into a super-mature athlete. His numbers are solid, he tries hard and loves this place."

Water Cannon, the apparent lone speed in the Campbell field, never got a chance to relax on the lead as he was pressured by Speed Whiz through fractions of 47.77 seconds for a half-mile and 1:12.72 for six furlongs. Pino had Your Bluffing sitting close to the modest pace and blew right past Water Cannon approaching the three-sixteenths pole. Your Bluffing opened up by 4 1/2 lengths with a furlong remaining, and Pino eased him to the wire after completing 1 1/8 miles on a fast track in 1:51.30.

Water Cannon held on for second, 4 1/2 lengths in front of 22-1 longshot Whats What.

Rosie Napravnik, the 18-year-old apprentice who is the runaway leader in the Laurel jockey standings, had her streak of winning two or more races on consecutive cards ended at seven after she won the first race and finished second in four others. She still remains 18 wins ahead of runner-up Erick Rodriguez with 42 wins at the meet since Jan. 1.
