ARCADIA, Calif. -- I Dazzle overtook 1-2 favorite In the Stars approaching the five-sixteenths pole and held on to win the $75,000 American Beauty Stakes by a neck at Santa Anita on Sunday.

Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, I Dazzle ran a mile on the turf in 1:33.42 and paid $11.40, $5 and $9.20 in her first start for trainer John Sadler. His horses finished 1-2-3 in the five-horse field.

Britain-bred Moone's My Name returned $4.20 and $6.80 in her U.S. debut, while Ireland-bred Byrony was another 3½ lengths back in third and paid $10 to show. In the Stars faded to fourth.

The victory, worth $45,900, increased I Dazzle's career earnings to $178,837, with four wins in 16 starts.
