BEJARANO HOLDS RYEHILL DREAMER OFF BY A NECK
ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 28, 2012)—In what appeared to many to be a two-horse race on paper, Red Sun and even money favorite Ryehill Dancer traded punches throughout Sunday’s $65,000 added, one-mile turf Lure Stakes at Santa Anita, with Red Sun and Rafael Bejarano emerging as neck winners, getting the distance in 1:34.03. It was Bejarano’s sixth win from seven tries aboard Red Sun.
LURE STAKES QUOTES
RAFAEL BEJARANO, RED SUN, WINNER: “I had to be on the lead with my horse. I knew there was going to be a little speed on the outside so I had to use a little bit of my horse in the beginning, but after that I was able to relax. When I saw the favorite (Ryehill Dreamer) was coming next to me I tried to save as much ground as I could and let my horse go with him. This horse always runs well with me.”
