Blingismything wins $100,000 Wilshire Stakes by a nose
ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Blingismything won the $100,000 Wilshire Stakes for fillies and mares by a nose in a four-horse photo finish Sunday at Santa Anita.
Ridden by Tyler Baze, Blingismything ran a mile on turf in 1:37.16 and paid $7.40, $3.80 and $2.40 as the 5-2 second choice.
Smoove It returned $5.60 and $3.20, while 9-5 favorite Birdlover was another head back in third and paid $2.40 to show.
Blingismything was next to last with a quarter mile to go when Baze split horses off the rail and eked out the victory over a fast-closing Smoove It, who was caught wide.
The victory, worth $60,000, increased Blingismything’s career earnings to $246,330, with four wins in 10 starts.
