Trainer Bob Baffert & jockey Rafael Bejarano swept a split Southwest Stakes, which had to be divided due to 21 entrants for the Derby prep race.

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Rafael Bejarano go back-to-back with Castaway and Secret Circle in the Grade Three Southwest Stakes, which had to split into two divisions due to 21 entrants.

The son of 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, Castaway, ran away from the field in the stretch for a three and three-quarter lengths win in the first division of the $250,000 Kentucky Derby prep race at Oaklawn Park.

In the second race, last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint champ, Secret Circle, bested Scatman by a half-length as the two horses battled to the wire.

Castaway paid $15.40, $9.40 and $7.20. Jake Mo paid $19 and $7.40, while Reckless Jerry paid $4.20 to show.
Secret Circle paid $3.20, $3.20 and 2.40, while Scatman paid $6.40 and $4.60. Third-place finisher Adirondack King paid $3.60 to show.
