Runhappy Wins Malibu Stakes at Santa Anita Park

Las Vegas, NV - Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California was the scene of the $300,000 Grade 1 Malibu Stakes on Saturday, December 26 - a seven furlong main track test for a group of intriguing three year olds. It was James McIngvale's 3-year-old sprinting superstar Runhappy that dominated the field by 3 1/2 lengths as the overwhelming 1-2 favorite. 9-2 second choice Marking was beaten for the first time but still finished second while Lord Nelson wound up an OK third. El Kabeir came next in fourth and was followed by Watershed, Pain and Misery and Bad Read Sanchez.
