Former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a US graded-stakes success when 5YO entire Champ Pegasus (Fusaichi Pegasus-Salt Champ, by Salt Lake) scored by a nose in the US$150,000 Gr2 San Luis Obispo Handicap (12 furlongs on turf) for 4YOs & up at Santa Anita.
