Waingarth, the longest shot on the board, rallied from last to score a 19-1 upset victory in Monday's $100,000 Real Good Deal Stakes for California-bred 3-year-olds. He beat Stoney by a half-length, with 1-2 favorite Bring The Heat another 1 1/2 lengths back in third in the field of seven. Bring The Heat suffered his first loss after two victories.
Waingarth, with Tyler Baze aboard, was timed in 1:22.28 for seven furlongs on the fast main track. He paid $40.80 to win.
John Sadler trains Waingarth, who has now won twice in six starts, his only previous victory coming against Cal-bred maidens at Santa Anita in March. Monday's race was his first start since June 20. The son of Slewpy had been gelded in the interim.
"Gelding him made all the difference," Baze said. "When I rode him before, he'd get all hot and ratty going to the post. Today he was totally cool."
