Santa Anita: Pedroza on the rail


Jockey Martin Pedroza clung to the rail on Rummysecret War ($8.60) in Sunday's seventh race, and gave the second betting choice a victory by 1 1-4 lengths.

Rummysecret War, racing for a $20,000 claiming price, stalked pacesetter Positive Force through early fractions of 21.95 and 43.97 seconds, took the lead on the turn and finished 6 1-2 furlongs in 1:14.48. The track is rated fast, and has endured nearly three hours of steady light rain.

Rummysecret War has won consecutive races for La Canada Stables and Jack Carava, having won a $16,000 claimer at Hollywood Park on Nov. 28.
