Pontchatrain took the lead in the upper stretch and won the $200,000 Buena Vista Stakes by a length at Santa Anita on Monday.

SADDLE UP

Time after time, Hollywood has shown a racetrack is a great place to tell a compelling story. We look at 10 must-see horse racing movies.

Pontchatrain, under Gary Stevens, pulled early and stalked off the rail, bid three deep leaving the second turn, took the lead, and inched away late. Her fourth consecutive victory was worth $120,000.

Pontchatrain ran the mile in 1:33.33 and returned $7 to win in the race for fillies and mares 4 years old and up.

''She relaxed for me, and we just brought it home. If she keeps relaxing for me, we can go even further with her,'' Stevens said.

Egg Drop, the favorite, finished second Tapicat was third.
