Lasersport Remains Undefeated After San Miguel Victory

From Santa Anita
In the $107,500 San Miguel Stakes for 3-year-olds at Santa Anita on Saturday, 8-5 favorite Lasersport remained undefeated with a two-length victory over Early Flyer in 1:08 3/5 for six furlongs. By 1992 champion juvenile Gilded Time, Lasersport won his first two starts in Kentucky late last year and then was purchased privately by Bill Herrick and sent to trainer Darrell Vienna at Santa Anita.

Saturday, Lasersport was never headed. He held a clear lead over Early Flyer while setting fractions of :21 4/5 and :44 3/5, and entered the stretch leading Early Flyer. Lasersport held sway in the final furlong and paid $5.20 $3.60 and $3.20. Nakatani rode the winner at 116 pounds.

Early Flyer, McCarron riding at 114 pounds, held second and returned $4.80 and $3.80. It was 2 1/2 lengths back to Bills Paid, Tyler Baze aboard at 114 pounds, and a $3.80 show payoff. Our Shining Hour, Unbridled Time and Da Breeze completed the order of finish. Chicago Joe was a late scratch.
