Horse Racing

ARCADIA, Calif. — Nadal won the $200,000 San Vicente Stakes by three-quarters of a length on Sunday, giving trainer Bob Baffert another Kentucky Derby possibility.

Ridden by Joel Rosario, Nadal ran seven furlongs in 1:22.59 and paid $2.60 to win as the 1-5 favorite in the six-horse field.

It was Baffert’s record 10th win in the prep for the Santa Anita Derby in April.

Ginobili finished second, while Fast Enough was third. Storm the Court, last year’s 2-year-old male champion, finished fourth as the 3-1 second choice. Storm the Court was beaten by 2½ lengths.

Baffert said Nadal is likely headed to Arkansas for the Rebel Stakes on March 14.

The victory, worth $120,000, increased Nadal’s career earnings to $153,000 with two wins in two starts.
