Santa Anita: Rosario sweeps double


Jockey Joel Rosario swept the early double on Saturday and could have a monster day.

In the third race, he rides Adam Suances (8-1 on the morning line), followed through the day Merrytagio (4-1) in the fourth, Strawberry Tart (6-1) in the fifth, Havens Lake (3-1) in the sixth, Turning Top (3-1) in the seventh, and Excellent News (5-2) in the ninth.
