The 21st Running of the Jim Murray Handicap (Grade II) $150000 Guaranteed [02:52]
A return to the Hollywood Park turf course was all Acclamation needed to get back to the winner's circle. The 5-year-old California bred became the second repeat winner of the $150000 Jim Murray Memorial Handicap Saturday, easily disposing of four rivals. Ending a four race losing streak, Acclamation joined On the Acorn, who won the Grade II in 2007 and 2008 for Indizguys Stable and trainer Mike Mitchell. Ridden for the first time by Joel Rosario, Acclamation, a son of Unusual Heat and the Silveyville mare Winning in Style, was content to track runaway leader All Saint for most of the trip, took over the lead with little effort approaching the stretch, then widened in the final two furlongs. A record setting winner of the Murray a year ago when prevailing by 7 ½ lengths, Acclamation nearly matched the margin Saturday. The 7-5 favorite finished seven lengths ahead of Falcon Rock while running the 1 ½ miles in 2:25.63. The final time was nearly a second faster than his first win in the race. Acclamation's 2010 clocking was 2:26.59. Owned by Peter and Mary Hilvers and breeders Bud and Judy Johnston and trained by Don Warren, Acclamation won for the fifth time in 24 starts. Now 4-for-6 on the Hollywood Park grass, the bay has earned $608048. The 14-1 eighth choice in a field of 10 in last year's Murray, Acclamation returned $4.80, $2.80 and $2.40 Saturday. Falcon Rock, who finished a half-length in front of 5-2 second choice Haimish Hy, paid $3.80 and $2.40. The 6-year-old ...

2011 San Luis Obispo S. [02:56]
Champ Pegasus defeated 11-10 choice Bourbon Bay by a nose after a scintillating stretch battle in the $150000 San Luis Obispo Stakes (gr. IIT) on the Santa Anita turf course Feb. 19 (VIDEO). Trainer Richard Mandella said afterward that if Champ Pegasus is doing well after his exerting win, he would be pointed to the $5 million Dubai Sheema Classic (UAE-I) at 1 1/2 miles at Meydan Racecourse March 26. If Champ Pegasus makes the trip, the 2010 Emirates Airline Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) runner-up may get a rematch with Dangerous Midge, who is expected to run in the Sheema Classic as well. On a course softened by rain, second choice Champ Pegasus, a homebred son of Fusaichi Pegasus --Salt Champ, by Salt Lake, went over $1 million in lifetime earnings for owners Diamond A Racing and Arturo Vargas. Bourbon Bay defeated Champ Pegasus by 1 3/4 lengths in the 10-furlong San Marcos Stakes (gr. II) Jan. 17. In his first start since the Breeders' Cup, Champ Pegasus led by one length at the eighth pole that day but could not hold off Bourbon Bay, who registered his fourth grade II win on the Santa Anita lawn. "My horse was trying very hard," Mandella said. "I was just hoping I would come out on the right end. I was confident on the softer going, but Bourbon Bay was five for five on the course. My horse definitely needed his last race. I didn't have him as fit as I thought I did (in the San Marcos), and I had underestimated how good Bourbon Bay was, and he is very good." Ridden by ...
