ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Wake Up Nick won the $125,000 Santa Anita Juvenile by three-quarters of a length Sunday.
Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Wake Up Nick ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.28 and paid $10.80, $5.20 and $4.40.
Story to Tell returned $5.80 and $4.60, while first-time starter Homer Matt was another 1 1/4 lengths back in third and paid $6.60 to show. Holiday Camp, the even-money favorite trained by Bob Baffert, finished last in the field of five 2-year-olds, beaten 6 1/2 lengths.
Gutierrez, trainer Doug O'Neill and owner J. Paul Reddam teamed with I'll Have Another to win the Santa Anita Derby, Kentucky Derby and Preakness two years ago. Now they're back with another talented juvenile.
