Aaron U. Jones' Sabulose, ridden by Robbie Davis, led all the way and posted a 1 1/2-length victory in the $42,000 feature race on Friday at the Oak Tree meeting at Santa Anita.
Sabulose opened up as many as six lengths on the field midway through the one-mile race and held on to claim his first victory in a race of more than seven furlongs. He was timed in 1:35 4/5.
Dramatis, the 7-5 favorite, couldn't catch the winner in the stretch, despite strong urging from jockey Martin Pedroza. Recitation Spin was another four lengths back in third.
Sabulose, trained by Joe Cannon, won for the fourth time in 12 career starts and paid $6.20 . The $23,100 winner's share of the purse increased his lifetime earnings to $147,850.
