Santa Anita: Mitchell claims fav


Trainer Mike Mitchell claimed losing favorite Gladiatrix from Friday's sixth race for $25,000.

Gladiatrix was on the lead for the first half-mile, after breaking slowly and rushing to the front. She faded from contention through the final furlong to finish well behind race winner No Afillyation ($6.40).

Gladiatrix was previously trained by Bob Baffert, and has one win from four starts.
