Warren’s Veneda wins Paseana Stakes with rail move
Warren’s Veneda shot through an opening at the rail turning for home and went on to a 5-1/2-length in the $75,000 Paseana Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita.
Ridden by Tyler Baze, Warren’s Veneda ran 1-1/16 miles on a wet track in 1:42.97 and paid $10.40, $4.60 and $3.40.
Taste Like Candy returned $6.20 and $3.60, while Valiant Emilia was another three-quarters of a length back in third and paid $6.80 to show.
The victory, worth $60,600, increased Warren’s Veneda’s career earnings to $467,612, with six wins in 20 starts. The 5-year-old mare is trained by Craig Lewis.
”I had the perfect trip,” Baze said. ”She just tries so hard. She gives me everything she’s got every time she runs. It’s amazing to have a nice filly like that.”
