ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Shakin It Up won the $150,000 San Vicente Stakes in his 3-year-old debut, giving Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert his eighth win in the sprint at Santa Anita on Sunday.
Ridden by David Flores, Shakin It Up ran 7 furlongs in 1:22.48, rallying in the stretch to separate himself from five rivals. The brown colt paid $6.40, $3.80 and $2.80. He is co-owned by Mike Pegram, a friend and longtime client of Baffert.
Treasury Bill returned $5 and $3.80, while Caballo Del Cielo paid $3.60 to show.
War Academy, also trained by Baffert, finished fourth in the six-horse field in his first start of the year.
