Santa Anita: A blustery Thursday


Conditions are cool and windy, with temperatures in the 50s and a strong wind from the west. The pacesetters will face a strong head-wind on the backstretch.

There are scratches in two of the eight races. In the second race, which will be run on turf, Mr. Katz, is out. In the eighth race, the longshot Flash and Class will not start in a maiden claimer.

The turf course is listed as "good" after approximately three-quarters of an inch of rain fell early Wednesday.
