ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Flashback romped to a 6 14-length victory in the $196,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita on Saturday, leading a 1-2 finish for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert's horses.

Den's Legacy, the other Baffert runner, finished second in the race for 3-year-olds.

Flashback ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.95 under Julien

Leparoux and paid $3 and $2.40 as the 1-2 favorite. Den's Legacy returned $2.40 to show.

He's Had Enough, second to Shanghai Bobby in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile here last fall, was a half-length back in third. He's trained by Doug O'Neill and ridden by Mario Gutierrez, who teamed to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness last year with I'll Have Another. Little Jerry finished fourth. There was no show wagering because of the small field.
