Iliad Wins San Vicente Stakes at Santa Anita Park
The $200,000 G2 San Vicente Stakes was run Sunday, February 12 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California - a seven furlong dirt test for three year olds. It was Doug O'Neill trained 2-1 second betting choice Iliad that opened a few eyes when he emerged from the pack and prevailed by a relatively easy 3 1/2 lengths. 9-1 shot Law Abidin Citizen finished a clear second in the field of five, 4 1/2 lengths ahead of 4-5 favorite Battle of Midway who was never a factor. Aquamarine came in fourth while Blabimir was eased in the stretch and completed the order of finish.
