Santa Anita: 8 claims for Gumption


Gumption, who was beaten a head in Sunday's seventh race, was claimed for $40,000 in an eight-way shake by trainer Craig Lewis.

Gumption was the only horse in the field entered for a claiming price. She led late but could not hold off a late run from Makoma ($7.40).

A 5-year-old mare, Gumption was trained by Mike Pender, who claimed her for $25,000 last November at Hollywood Park. In three starts for Pender, Gumption was third twice and second on Sunday.
