CYPRESS, CA—MAY 23, 2021— Ilushion Eagle was a head back, in a blanket finish, to Jet Wings One and A Dash Of SIgn to take third in a blanket-finish to the $38,242 Adequan California Derby Challenge Sunday night at Los Alamitos Race Course.
Ilushion Eagle drifted early before luging in late but still managed to finish third for owner Salome Gallego. Trainer Jaime Gomez conditions the Darling Farms Mexico-bred son of last year's leading first-crop sire of winners, ONE FABULOUS EAGLE.
Oscar Peinado was aboard the three-time winner from the Forestry (TB) mare Oklahoma Rain (TB). Ilushion Eagle has earned $24,073 after pocketing $4,207 in the Adequan California Derby.
