Santa Anita: Dextera is popular claim


Dextera, fourth as the 9-5 second choice in Sunday's third race, was claimed in a three-way shake by Mike Machowsky.

A 5-year-old mare, Dextera won two stakes at Turf Paradise in 2009 - the Chandler Stakes and Glendale Handicap - but had dropped in class in recent months. She won a $12,500 claimer over a mile here on Feb. 20.

Machowsky said that Dextera will be sent to Kentucky this week and will be bred to Latent Heat, who is best known for winning the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes at Santa Anita in 2006.
