Emmzy rallies for Santa Anita MdSpWt victory
Making her first start around two turns, Zayat Stables' Emmzy battled to a game half-length victory in a $56,000 maiden special weight affair at Santa Anita Park on June 10.

The 3-year-old filly, by Zayat's stallion Eskendereya, was locked in a duel with Eileen's Girl virtually the entire 1 1/16-mile trip, with the Bob Baffert trainee pulling ahead in deep stretch to claim the victory under Mike Smith (VIDEO).

Emmzy picked up $33,600 for the win. The daughter of Comfort Zone, bred in Kentucky by Clarkland Farm, is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner The Pamplemousse.
