Steinlen Equals Turf Record at Santa Anita
Steinlen, making his first start since finishing second in the Breeders’ Cup Turf race behind 1988 champion turf filly Miesque in November, withstood the challenge of Peace to win the $60,000 Project Hope Purse at Santa Anita Thursday.
Ridden by Laffit Pincay, Steinlen equaled the turf course record of 1:34 1/5 for one mile while carrying 118 pounds. Peace, with Bill Shoemaker up, finished 5 lengths ahead of Exclusive Partner in the field of six.
Steinlen paid $3.40, $2.60 and $2.20.
