Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Ain’t No Other covered six furlongs on the turf in 1:08.97 and paid $8.20, $3.20 and $2.80. Circa’sgoldengear returned $2.80 and $2.20 and Willyconker paid $3.20 to show.
The 4-year-old gelding pushed his career earnings to $350,103 with the win, which was his first since he took the Livermore Valley Wine Stakes in July 2011 at Pleasanton.

Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Eblouissante ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:45.27 and paid $4.80, $3.60 and $2.80.
