ARCADIA, Calif. Wholesake Fake Nike Air Force 1 . -- Breaking from the rail sure isnt a problem for California Chrome.Drawing the No. 1 post for the second straight race, Chrome led all the way in cruising to a 2 1/4-length victory in the $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes on Saturday at Santa Anita, improving to 6-0 this year as the front-runner for Horse of the Year honors.Three-time defending champion Beholder lost to Stellar Wind in the $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes, extending the longest skid of her career to three races. She also lost to Stellar Wind in the Clement L. Hirsch and to Chrome in the Pacific Classic at Del Mar this summer.Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Chrome ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:48.07 and paid $2.80, $2.10 and $2.10 as the 2-5 favorite in one of five Grade 1 stakes on the card with Breeders Cup implications in front of 18,563.Hes a challenging horse to run against because hes versatile on top of his talent, Espinoza said. He can run on the front end and can come from behind. If someone wants to try and run with us again, maybe Ill take back the next time. Thats the best part, he doesnt have to be up there on the lead.Espinoza was aboard Stellar Wind in the Zenyatta, winning by a neck to earn his third victory of the day. The 4-year-old filly claimed an automatic berth in the BC Distaff.Chrome earned an all-fees paid berth in the $6 million BC Classic next month on the same track. The victory also kept alive the 5-year-olds bid to earn a $1 million bonus for sweeping the Pacific Classic, Awesome Again and BC Classic.Chrome won the Pacific Classic by five lengths from the inside post last month.Two down, one to go.Each race seems a little bit better, its a little scary, said Art Sherman, Chromes 79-year-old trainer. I never had the ability to buy the most expensive horses. This is just like a gift from, I dont know where.Dortmund returned $2.20 and $2.10, while Win the Space was another 4 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $2.80 to show.It was nearly a match race between Chrome and Dortmund, who dueled at the front while the other three runners lagged behind. Chrome pulled away from Dortmund approaching the final turn. Espinoza didnt use his whip in the stretch and eased Chrome nearing the finish line.Hard Aces was fourth and Soi Phet last.Chrome, the 2014 Kentucky Derby winner, ran the opening quarter-mile in a speedy 22.76 seconds.I ran the first part fast yes, but then eased up on him, Espinoza said. I didnt want to overuse him. Weve got a big race coming up. It seemed like he was doing everything very easily. Hopefully hell run big in the Breeders Cup.As Chrome and Espinoza made their way past the grandstand, the jockey waved to cheering Chromies, the horses fans.Wearing blinkers for the first time since his career debut, Dortmund lost for the first time in six starts at Santa Anita under trainer Bob Baffert.The victory, worth $180,000, increased Chromes career earnings to $13,432,500 as North Americas career earnings leader.In the Zenyatta, Stellar Wind ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:35.06 and paid $6 to win. Beholder was the 2-5 favorite in the field of five. Argentina-bred Vale Dori finished 11 3/4 lengths back in third.Beholder went to the lead, which wasnt the plan in the five-horse field.Nothing really went wrong except I was on the lead and a sitting duck once again, her jockey Gary Stevens said. I flat got out-run. Unfortunately, three losses in a row and its tough for a champion. Hopefully, we can bounce back and get some pace in the Breeders Cup.In other stakes:- Espinoza rode Gormley to a three-length upset in the $300,000 FrontRunner Stakes, giving the 2-year-old colt a berth in the BC Juvenile.Gormley ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.57 and paid $23.60, $9 and $3 at 11-1 odds. Hes owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs, the same group that campaigned superstar mare Zenyatta.I like that when he got into that big gear he has, he didnt get too excited for a young horse and today he was all business, Shirreffs said.Gormley also won his career debut by 4 1/2 lengths at Del Mar on Sept. 4.Klimt, the 1-5 favorite trained by Baffert, finished second. Straight Fire was third.Secret House, a 60-1 shot, was rambunctious in the starting gate and jockey Santiago Gonzalez stepped off before the gate opened. That triggered an inquiry by the stewards, who ruled Secret House was a non-starter and the track refunded all money wagered on him. Gonzalez did something similar in a race last week at Los Alamitos.Gonzalez was ordered to appear before the stewards on Sunday to discuss his actions.- Avenge won the $300,000 Rodeo Drive Stakes by three-quarters of a length to earn a berth in the BC Filly & Mare Turf.Ridden by Flavien Prat, Avenge ran 1 1/4 miles in 1:58.52 on turf and paid $12.40 to win.Zipessa, the 2-1 favorite, was second and Britain-bred Frenzified took third.- Noted and Quoted won the $300,000 Chandelier Stakes by a half-length to claim a berth in the BC Juvenile Fillies.Ridden by Rafael Bejarano and trained by Baffert, the 2-year-old gray filly ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.88 and paid $16.80 to win.With Honors finished second and 5-2 favorite Zapperkat was third.American Cleopatra, a full sister to 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, finished eighth. Fake Shoes . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from.

LONDON -- There are many reasons for Andy Murrays second Wimbledon championship and third Grand Slam title, not least of which would be his ability to return Milos Raonics big serves in the final.There was also Murrays unrelenting court coverage.Those dipping passing shots when Raonic charged the net.Those clean strokes from every angle, limiting his unforced errors to merely a dozen during the 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (2) victory Sunday that allowed Murray to end his three-match losing streak in major finals in rather dominating fashion.And, a cynic might point out, the chance to finally face someone other than Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer with a Grand Slam title at stake.Murrays mother, former British Fed Cup captain Judy, pointed to another, possibly less-apparent, explanation for her sons success.Hes very good at finding a way to win when hes not playing his best tennis. And he reads the game well, she said during a break from the champagne celebration after sitting at Centre Court for the final. And hes very competitive.That last part dates back years and years.Because hes a perfectionist, and he always wanted to win, he was very temperamental as a young player. Very temperamental, Mom said, noting that Andys time at a tennis academy in Spain as a teenager helped curb that somewhat.Its part of who he is, and you wouldnt want to change it, she added. You just have to learn to temper it.Here is what else we learned at Wimbledon:SERENAS IN A GROOVE: Not that she ever went away, but Serena Williams had what for her amounted to something of a resurgence by collecting her record-tying 22nd Grand Slam title, including seven at Wimbledon. Her serve was superb, and every other part of her game was rather excellent, too. After losses in the semifinals of last years U.S. Open, then finals of this years Australian Open and French Open, she once again finished a fortnight holding the trophy.DJOKOVIC NOT IINFALLIBLE: So much for the popular notion that Djokovic was unbeatable. Wholesale Fake Shoes. Owner of a 30-match winning streak at majors, including four consecutive titles, he looked out of sorts for much of his third-round loss to Sam Querrey, an American who began Wimbledon ranked 41st and never had made it past the fourth round at a major. How will Djokovic rebound?FEDERERS STATUS: Since 2012, when Federer won his 17th Grand Slam title, folks have been guessing when hell no longer be considered a contender at the majors. Theyve had to keep waiting for an answer, especially when he was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2014, and Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2015. Hell turn 35 on Aug. 8, and while he did pull off a monumental comeback against Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals, he looked quite vulnerable while losing to Raonic and we still dont know how badly he might have been injured during a fifth-set fall.WHITHER THE YOUNGSTERS?: Of the eight mens and womens singles semifinalists at Wimbledon, the 25-year-old Raonic was by far the youngest. When, if ever, will the next generation really be here to stay? The members of the womens final four, including a renaissance from 36-year-old Venus Williams, averaged 31 years, 9 months -- the oldest at any Grand Slam tournament in the Open era, which began nearly a half-century ago.U.S. MEN MATTERED: For the first time in a while, American men mattered at Grand Slam time. Four made it to the third round, and two got to the second week. Querrey, a 28-year-old Californian with a big serve, not only defeated Djokovic, but also appeared in his first major quarterfinal. No man from the United States had reached the quarters at any Grand Slam since the 2011 U.S. Open.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ' ' '
