Santa Anita: Claim in first


Southern Strike, who finished fourth in Friday's first race, was claimed for $30,000 by trainer Eric Kruljac. Southern Stike has made four starts, with two fourth-place finishes his best result. The filly was trained by Eric Kruljac going into Friday's race.

The maiden claimer over 1 1-16 miler was marred by the breakdown of the outsider Tol My Angel Soul in the stretch. The race was won by Ancient Holiday ($18), who was timed in 1:43.74. Long Legged Lovely, the 2-5 favorite, raced on the rail in traffic at a pivotal point in early stretch, losing all chance. She finished fifth, the last of the finishers.
