What A Finish! ‘I’ll Have Another’ Wins Santa Anita Derby

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) – I’ll Have Another edged 4-5 favorite Creative Cause by a nose in the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby.

Sent off at 4-1 odds, I’ll Have Another ran 1 1-8 miles in 1:47.88 under Mario Gutierrez on Saturday in the West’s leading prep for the Kentucky Derby.

Blueskiesnrainbows was another half-length back in third for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, who was trying to win his record seventh Santa Anita Derby. Paynter, one of his three entries, finished fourth.

I’ll Have Another paid $10.20, $4.20 and $3.60. Creative Cause returned $2.60 and $2.40, while Blueskiesnrainbows paid $9.60 to show.

Trained by Doug O’Neill, I’ll Have Another won the Robert Lewis Stakes on Feb. 4 after returning from a five-month layoff. He was then given two months off to prepare for Saturday’s race.
