Swinging out widest of all on the far turn, odds-on favored Ashleyluvssugar took aim at the leaders and went on by, crossing the wire the winner of the Grade 2, $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes at Santa Anita Sunday afternoon.

The 4-year-old gelding has been on a roll as of late, winning three straight races, including the G2 San Luis Rey last out. Peter Eurton trains for owner-breeders Sharon Alesia, Bran Jam Stable, and Ciaglia Racing.

The gates opened and Going Somewhere, making his U.S. debut, seized the lead, laying out measured opening fractions of :24.16 and :48.06. The chestnut horse slowed the pace after that, running the six furlongs in 1:14.21 and 1:40.74 for the mile.

Ashleyluvssugar, under jockey Gary Stevens, sat mid-pack throughout and began to move up nearing the final turn. The gelding checked sharply on that turn and lost position, falling to last place. Stevens guided Ashleyluvssugar wide; the eventual winner circled the pack and exploded down the straight, sprinting past rivals for the victory.

Ganesh was a game second, followed by Going Somewhere, Divine Oath, and Crucero. Final time for the mile and a half was 2:30.10.

Ashleyluvssugar is a California-bred son of Game Plan out of Ashley’s Folly, by Urgent Request. The gelding has six wins in 11 lifetime starts.
