Santa Anita: Chantal to ride Abelard


Chantal Sutherland has picked up the mount on the first-time starter Abelard in Thursday's eighth race, replacing Brice Blanc.

Blanc complained of soreness after being unseated from All Star Heart, when that filly slipped and fell in Thursday's second race.

Abelard, trained by Matt Chew, is listed at 20-1 in a $30,000 claiming race for maidens over 5 1-2 furlongs.
