Santa Anita: Late scratch in 2nd

Email

Gilded Gem has been scratched from the $100,000 Monrovia Stakes on the hillside turf course, Sunday's second race.

Gilded Gem was entered in the race in the event it was transferred to the main track. As of noon, no rain had fallen and the Monrovia has remained on the turf. The Monrovia is the second race, less than an hour away.

The absence of Gilded Gem leaves the race with seven starters.
