Alpine Yodel and jockey Russell Baze came up just inches short of scoring a wire-to-wire victory in the one-mile contest for 3-year-old fillies. They were denied by Sterling Misty, who tracked the favorite from the start and got her nose down on the wire.
Sterling Mistry returned $18.40 after completing a mile on a "yielding" Lakeside Turf Course in 1:37.59. Trained by Bill Delia and owned by Marshall Boschetti, Sterling Misty earned $18,000 for the victory.
Racing continues at Golden Gate Fields Friday. Post time is 12:45 p.m.
