California Chrome Wins Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita Park
The $300,000 Grade 1 Awesome Again Stakes took place Saturday, October 1 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California - a 1 1/8 mile dirt test for horses three years old and upward. To absolutely nobody's surprise it was 2-5 race favorite California Chrome that made it look easy en route to a 2 1/4 length win in the field that was trimmed to just five. 8-5 second choice Dortmund raced well but had to settle for second with Win the Space claiming third at 26-1 odds. Hard Aces came in fourth and Soi Phet followed to complete the order of finish. Hoppertunity and El Huerfano were scratched.
