SANTA ANITA RACE 5: Post 2:30 PT
The 5-year-old gelding continues to impress in the a.m. and switches to Ruben Fuentes, a very live rider lately for the John Sadler barn. The son of Artie Schiller returned off of a nearly two-year layoff to finish a respectable fourth under these conditions last time out with a less-than-ideal trip (off slowly, wide) while earning a better-than-par speed figure for the level.
SANTA ANITA RACE 7: Post 3:30 PT
1-Kustom for Karl (3-1)
Was highly impressive graduating over this course and distance in mid-May, hasn’t missed a beat in the morning since and looks primed for another major effort while drawing the highly-favorable rail post position. The Jeff Mullins-trained filly should be quite comfortable with a ground-saving second-flight trip and offers excellent value at 3-1 on the morning line.
