Lilacs and Lace Surprises Cathy's Crunches

Lilacs and Lace, under a vigorous ride by Russell Baze, collared front-running Cathy's Crunches past the sixteenth pole and drew off to a 1 1/2-length victory in the $92,000 California Oaks at Golden Gate Fields Jan. 1.

The race was marred by the breakdown of Game to Run, who was injured while tracking the pace approaching the final turn of the 1 1/16-mile event on Golden Gate's Tapeta racing surface.
