ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Fiftyshadesofhay won the $100,000 Santa Ysabel Stakes for 3-year-old fillies by 5 3/4 lengths at Santa Anita on Saturday.

Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Fiftyshadesofhay ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.89 on a dirt surface listed as wet-fast after earlier rain. She paid $14.40, $4.80 and $2.40 as the 6-1 fourth choice in the field of five for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.

Heir Kitty returned $3.40 and $2.20 while finishing second for the second straight race. Scarlet Strike was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $2.10 to show as the 3-2 favorite.

Fiftyshadesofhay finished eighth in the mile Blue Norther Stakes on the turf at Santa Anita on Jan. 1, an experiment Baffert labeled "kind of disastrous.''
