Tamarando, filling in for stablemate Exit Stage Left, rallied from last in a field of eight to win the $200,000 El Camino Real Derby for 3-year-olds at Golden Gate Fields on Saturday.

Exit Stage Left, an undefeated colt with three stakes wins, sustained a tendon injury a week prior to the race. That prompted trainer Jerry Hollendorfer to go with Tamarando.

Russell Baze, the regular rider of Exit Stage Left, rode Tamarando for the first time Saturday.

Tamarando ran down Dance With Fate and Aaron Gryder in the final yards of the 11/8-mile Kentucky Derby prep race to win by a half-length in 1:51.23. Enterprising, the 6-to-5 favorite ridden by Gary Stevens, was third.

"There's going to be a lot of good things coming from this colt," Baze said. "He's got a lot of talent."
