BAFFERT HITS GUSHER AS DRILL WINS GR. II SAN VICENTE
ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) _ Drill defeated American Act by a nose to win the $150,000 San Vicente Stakes (Grade II) and snap a five-race skid on Sunday at Santa Anita, although trainer Bob Baffert isn't rushing him onto the Kentucky Derby trail. An on-track crowd of 11,023 were held spellbound the final furlong and the result was very much in doubt until the photo finish camera established the official order of finish.
Ridden by Martin Garcia, Drill ran seven furlongs in 1:21.28 and paid $9.60 and $5 at 7-2 odds.
