Juniper Pass needed every yard of the San Juan Capistrano Handicap's 1 3/4-mile distance, getting up with a desperate lunge to defeat Imponente Purse by a head to drop the curtain on the 2010-11 Santa Anita season April 17.
A new jockey, an equipment change and a first start on the main track all added up to the initial stakes victory for Juniper Pass in the off-the-turf San Luis Rey Stakes (gr. III) at rain-soaked Santa Anita March 20.
