Indian Firewater holds on in San Fernando

Karl Watson, Mike Pegram and Paul Weitman's INDIAN FIREWATER (Indian Charlie), best of the rest behind Sidney's Candy (Candy Ride [Arg]) in the December 26 Sir Beaufort S. (G3), capitalized on the scratch of that formidable rival to wire Saturday's $150,000 San Fernando S. (G2) at Santa Anita. With new rider Mike Smith nursing him along, the Bob Baffert charge just lasted by a nose from his rallying stablemate Tweebster (Tapit), giving his Hall of Fame trainer a one-two finish.

"I was just happy to see our two horses coming down the stretch together there," said assistant trainer Jim Barnes, who was deputizing for the vacationing Baffert. "You want them both to win, but that was as close to a dead-heat as you could get.

"At first I thought Indian Firewater won, then watching the replay I thought maybe the outside horse (Tweebster) because it was it was at a different angle, way to the outside. But we'll take it one-two."
