The mutuel on Family Flair, who won by 1 3/4 lengths in the 1 1/16-mile claiming race for 3-year-old fillies, broke a record that had stood since June 5, 1956, when Liberal Art paid $322.10. In the $30,000 feature race, favored Splendid Treasure took the lead from Cinderella Ball about 50 yards from the wire and held on for a nose victory . The 3-year-old California-bred filly, ridden by Gary Stevens covered the 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:17 1/5 and returned $4.60, $2.80 and $2.20 to her backers in the crowd of 13,858.
