Kilroe Mile & Santa Anita Handicap Results

Gold Phoenix (Ire) jumped out of the ground with an eighth of a mile to run in Saturday’s G1 Kilroe Mile S. at Santa Anita and outsprinted the fast-finishing Du Jour (Temple City) for a maiden success at the top level.

As expected, it was the top-class sprinter Air Force Red who jumped smartly as the gates opened and he crossed over from his middle draw to set the speed with Cabo Spirit second on the rail, who was tracked outside by Masteroffoxhounds. Meanwhile, the chalk Hong Kong Harry had settled nicely in fourth in a nice stalking spot.

The eventual winner GOLD PHOENIX was nicely positioned on the rail in the fifth spot just three lengths off the speed. The other three were about three lengths adrift of the main pack all traveling smoothly.

As they went down the backstretch Air Force Red bowled along in front, and as they reached the far turn, the field had started to close in, with the chalk Hong Kong Harry looming large on the outside.

As they hit the home stretch, the three leaders fanned across the track, while in behind, Cabo Spirit was all wrapped up with nowhere to go.

It was here that Gold Phoenix found a seam on the inside rail, but was still only fifth and had three lengths to make up. As they hit the sixteenth pole, there were five across the track separated by just a length. Gold Phoenix got to the lead just 20 yards from the wire and repelled the late charge from Du Jour and Frankie Dettori.

Santa Anita Handicap

Grade 1 – Purse $500,000 – 1 1/4 miles – Dirt– 4-Year-Olds and Up

Stilleto Boy, the veteran, causes a shock in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap, as he and veteran jockey Kent Desormeaux out battle the top two on the board.

As the gates opened, it was the eventual winner STILLETTO BOY who bagged the rail position until the chalk Defunded came upsides at the clubhouse turn to take over, and he injected more speed,while Stilleto Boy was reined back by Desormeaux to stalk the Baffert runner.

As they set off down the backstretch the pace slowed and Hopper moved upsides the favorite on a tight rein under Mike Smith.

The field was tightly packed and it was barn buddies Hopper and Defunded who showed the way with Warrant moving closer in third and Stilleto Boy still moving nicely in the stalking position.

As they headed out of the back-stretch, Defunded started to stretch the field, but he could not shake off Hopper. The danger at this point looked to be There Goes Harvard who had moved stylishly into third with eventual winner Stilleto Boy coming under a drive.

As they set down for the drive to the wire, Defunded had seen off Hopper and There Goes Harvard, but Stilleto Boy’s stamina kicked in and he went after the favorite, while Proxy who was way back early, was building a head of steam and closing rapidly.

Defunded was headed 50 yards from the wire with Stilleto Boy holding the fast-finishing Proxy by a neck.
