Mor Spirit wins Robert Lewis for Baffert at Santa Anita


ARCADIA, California — Mor Spirit won the $150,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes by 1 ½ lengths at Santa Anita, reinforcing his status as the top 3-year-old in the barn of Triple Crown-winning trainer Bob Baffert.

Ridden by Gary Stevens, the horse ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.21 and paid $3.40, $2.40 and $2.10 as the 3-5 favorite in the Grade 3 race Saturday.

Uncle Lino returned $5.20 and $2.80, while I Will Score was another half-length back in third and paid $2.60 to show.

It was Baffert's sixth career victory in the race named for his late client Lewis. Baffert won last year with Dortmund, although it was American Pharoah who ruled the trainer's stable. That colt went on to become the sport's first Triple Crown winner in 37 years.
