ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Tiz Flirtatious won the $250,000 Rodeo Drive Stakes by a head at Santa Anita on Saturday, one of five Grade 1 races with Breeders' Cup implications at the event's host track.

Ridden by Julien Leparoux, Tiz Flirtatious ran 1 1/4 miles on the turf in 1:58.98 and paid $5.40, $2.80 and $2.10 as the 8-5 favorite. It was her first start at the distance for trainer Marty Jones.

Marketing Mix returned $2.60 and $2.20, while Vionnet paid $6.60 to show.

``She ran her race, we just got outkicked,'' said Gary Stevens, who rode Marketing Mix.

Tiz Flirtatious turned the tables in a rematch with Marketing Mix, who beat her by a head in the Grade 1 Gamely Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park in May. The winner gets a berth in the BC Filly & Mare Turf in November and has her entry fees paid.

``She had to fight because those other fillies did not stop,'' Leparoux said. ``It was a good race for her and she got the Grade 1 she deserves. I think she has a great chance for the Breeders' Cup. We knew she was really good, but it was nice to see her handle the distance.''

In the $250,000 Chandelier Stakes for 2-year-old fillies, Secret Compass edged She's a Tiger to win by a head.

Ridden by Rosie Napravnik, Secret Compass ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.91 and paid $23.40, $8.40 and $3.60.

Napravnik traveled from the East Coast to ride Saturday.

``It was a no brainer. We've had a lot of success together,'' winning Hall of Famer trainer Bob Baffert said. ``She's an excellent rider so I put her on and sort of turned her loose and let her run her race.''

She's a Tiger returned $4 and $2.40. Fascinating was another three-quarters of a length back in third and paid $2.10 to show as the 6-5 favorite, leaving her winless in four career starts.

Baffert went 1-3 in the race, while his other entry Awesome Baby finished fifth in the field of seven.

Secret Compass earned a spot in the $2 million BC Juvenile Fillies.

In the $250,000 FrontRunner Stakes, 10-1 shot Bond Holder won by 2 1/4 lengths in the 2-year-old's first race on dirt and first victory in five career starts.

Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Bond Holder ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:45.02 and paid $23.80, $8.60 and $3.80. He's trained by Doug O'Neill and owned by J. Paul Reddam, who along with Gutierrez, were the team behind last year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another.

Dance With Fate returned $3.80 and $2.80 as the 2-1 favorite, while Tamarando was another two lengths back in third and paid $3.20 to show. Baffert's two entries, Can the Man and Roundupthelute, were fourth and last, respectively.
