As they went down the backstretch, the other two runners Nadette and SeiSei were at least twelve lengths behind the runaway leader.

As they hit the far turn, the field had closed on the leader with just six lengths covering the six runners.

As they set down for the drive to the wire, Very Scary took over but the move was immediately covered by Joe Bravo on the chalk, and Closing Remarks moved to the lead a furlong from the wire and cleared late from the rallying School Dance who took second spot right on the wire from Very Scary in third, with early leader Honey Jar fading to finish fourth.

American Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $100,000 – 1 mile – Turf – 4-Year-Olds And Upwards

Exaulted takes his turf form to a new level with his first stakes win on his fourteenth career start, making it 3-3 on the turf course at Santa Anita.

As expected it was Bob And Jackie who wanted to get to the front early and he got pole position going into the clubhouse turn on the inside of the eventual winner EXAULTED.

As they headed off down the backstretch, it was a tightly bunched field bar Irideo who trailed the rest around seven lengths from the speed.

The well-fancied Earls Rock and Du Jour tracked the two leaders in perfect stalking positions behind the moderate early pace.

As they hit the far turn, Bob And Jackie quickened but could not shake off Exaulted and as they hit the top of the stretch Exaulted went to the front a furlong from the wire and he held the fast-finishing Irideo, with Bob And Jackie holding well for the third spot, with Du Jour rallying for fourth.

Pasadena Stakes

Stakes – Purse $100,000 – 1 mile – Turf – 3-Year-Olds

Johannes streaks clear in the home stretch to run out a facile winner of the Pasadena Stakes by 3 ½ lengths.

What looked like a match on paper turned out to be exactly that, but Game Time had no answers to the late power of Johannes.

Wizard Of Westwood took the four-runner field into the clubhouse turn after breaking smartly, and he was followed through by Game Time with the other two close up.

As they headed down the back-stretch, Hernandez was keen to stalk the leader in the two-lane just half a length back, while Rispoli moved closer on the eventual winner JOHANNES, and he was within striking distance on the chalk.

As they entered the home stretch, Rispoli had to come wide into the four path but was soon on terms with the two leaders and as soon as he urged Johannes, he shot clear to win widening by three and a half lengths in hand.

Game Time held well for second with Wizard Of Westwood fading into third and the longshot Keen To Go never able to get competitive.
