BENDABLE SURPRISES IN BEVERLY J. LEWIS

SOCAL RACING
Bendable

Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith completed a sweep of the weekend stakes Sunday at Los Alamitos, directing Bendable to a gate-to-wire upset over 1-5 favorite Enola Gray in the $75,000 Beverly J. Lewis.

Smith, who had earned his fifth Los Alamitos stakes score Saturday in the $75,000 E.B. Johnston with 7-10 choice Soi Phet, broke quickly in his first collaboration with Bendable, a 3-year-old Horse Greeley filly, then shook off challenges from 35-1outsider Everqueen and Enola Gray, who entered unchallenged in three starts vs. California breds, to prevail by 2¼ lengths.
