Santa Anita: Mulhall claims favorite


Lemon Drop Ridge, third as the 4-5 favorite in Friday's second race for maiden fillies, was claimed for $30,000 by trainer Kristin Mulhall.

Lemon Drop Ridge was making her first start for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer on Friday, and was beaten three-quarters of a length by Warren's Handfull ($28.40), who ran a mile in 1:37.05. Handfull was off the pace early and finished a neck in front of L'Anch.

Lemon Drop Ridge is winless in eight starts, and has been second or third in six of her races.

This was Mulhall's second claim of the week. She claimed Skellytown for $8,000 on Thursday.
