Johnny Podres looks to continue his win at Daytona

A field of 10, led by the top four finishers from last month’s Siren Lure Stakes—Johnny Podres , Peace first , Lane road And Mucho Del Oro —entered in the $100,000 Daytona Stakes (G3T) on May 26 at Santa Anita Park.

Reflecting the competitive nature of the race, the 6 1/2-length race down the hillside turf course was billed as the 10th and final race on Sunday—a position typically reserved for a close field that gives runners bet the chance to receive rewarding exceptional rewards at the end of the day. The race follows the five-horse Santa Margarita Stakes (G2).

Johnny Podres and First Peace were separated by half a length when they met in the April 21 Siren Lure. Johnny Podres was the best to win by half a length in the rally guided by Geovanni Franco.
