ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Theatre Star won the $60,000 feature for older fillies and mares by three-quarters of a length at Santa Anita on Friday.
Ridden by Gary Stevens, Theatre Star ran 1 1/8 miles on the turf in 1:47.52 and paid $5.60, $4 and $2.80 as the 9-5 favorite.
Rhagori returned $4.80 and $3.20, while Moulin de Mougin was another 1¼ lengths back in third and paid $2.80 to show.
