ARCADIA, Calif. (April 19, 2014)—Fresh off victory going 1½ miles on turf in the Grade II San Luis Rey Stakes March 22, Neil Drysdale's Fire With Fire seeks his third consecutive win in Friday's Grade III, $100,000 Last Tycoon Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on turf, which headlines an eight-race program on Santa Anita’s Spring Meet opening day.
Formerly run as the Inglewood Handicap at the now-shuttered Hollywood Park, The Last Tycoon attracted a half dozen 3-year-olds and up and will keynote Santa Anita's first-ever Spring Meet, which will run through Sunday, June 29.
