LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) — Cyrus Alexander rallied late to win the $50,750 feature by three-quarters of a length Sunday on closing day of the winter meet at Los Alamitos.

Ridden by Martin Garcia, Cyrus Alexander ran a mile in 1:38.90 and paid $11.40, $6.60 and $3.80 as the 9-2 third choice.

Highway Boss returned $11.20 and $4, while 2-1 favorite Just Kidding was another half-length back in third and paid $2.60 to show.

Trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer, Cyrus Alexander was making his first start in just over five months. The 3-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro was purchased for $1.7 million at the Keeneland September sale in 2013.

The victory was the third in 10 career starts for Cyrus Alexander and increased his earnings to $152,090.

Santiago Gonzalez won the jockeys' title during the 12-day meet. He finished with 14 victories, two more than Mario Gutierrez and Edwin Maldonado. Doug O'Neill won the trainers' title with eight victories.
