Gayego, who set the track record of 1:13 for 6 1/2 furlongs at Santa Anita while winning the Jan. 20 San Pedro S., was looking for his first win since taking the Apr. 12 GII Arkansas Derby. The strapping colt, 17th in the GI Kentucky Derby and 11th in the GI Preakness S., returned from a five-month freshening to be seventh in the Oct. 25 Damascus S. at Santa Anita. The 2-1 second choice was pressed on the early lead through fractions of :21.91 and :44.19. He opened up a clear lead in upper stretch and was not seriously threatened to the wire to finish in track-record time. El Gato Malo (El Corredor), making his first start since winning the May 10 GIII Lone Star Derby, was last in the early going and closed mildly before getting edged for third
