When Jean Greenman won a $40,000 car by putting $6 into a Las Vegas slot machine a few days ago, her husband was thrilled. When her husband, trainer Walter Greenman, won Saturday's $303,300 Goodwood Breeders' Cup Handicap after another horse was disqualified, he considered himself lucky. The Santa Anita stewards' disqualification of Alphabet Soup, in favor of Savinio, was controversial and not expected by Greenman. Then Sunday, Greenman's good fortune reached another level.

Getting the kind of trip she needs, Country Garden rolled to a six-length victory in the $81,750 Providencia Stakes Sunday at Santa Anita. At her best when she settles off the pace and makes a late run, the 3-year-old Selkirk filly and 2-1 favorite relaxed well behind the slow pace under jockey Kent Desormeaux, then accelerated at the top of the stretch. Trained by Walter Greenman for owner Ed McGrath, Country Garden won for the second time in five U.S. starts and has won four of 11 overall.

Petite Sonnerie, often a runner-up but rarely a winner, rallied to capture Thursday's $36,000 feature race on the turf at Santa Anita.

The victory was only the second in 18 starts for Petite Sonnerie, who had finished second eight times and third once. Eddie Delahoussaye rode Petite Sonnerie, who carried 120 pounds and was timed in 1:35 3/5 for the mile.
