Johnny Eves and jockey Garrett Gomez got the jump on their six rivals in the $150,000 Palos Verdes Handicap (gr. II) and never looked back, cruising to a 1 3/4-length victory at Santa Anita Jan. 25.
Johnny Eves, winless in seven starts this year since capturing the Malibu Stakes (gr. I) 11 months ago, got back to the winner's circle with a strong effort in the $108,400 Vernon O. Underwood (gr. III) at Hollywood Park Nov. 22.
