Santa Anita: Saturday scratches


There are scratches in three of the nine races at Santa Anita on Saturday, including the Grade 2 San Luis Obispo Stakes on turf. There is a pick six carryover of $$69,371.

The San Luis Obispo will be run over 1 1-2 miles on turf and will start on the oval portion of the turf course, and not the hillside, which is customary for races at that distance. The field has been reduced by three with the withdrawals of Pode Ir, Falcon Rock, and Tiz Argent. Jockey Victor Espinoza has picked up the mount on Interpatation.

In the sixth race, Lunar Lovegal, a 30-1 outsider, is out. In the ninth race, Free Time and Thunder of Zion have been withdrawn.

There was rain overnight, which forced the change in layout for the San Luis Obispo. That is the only turf race on the program The rest are one-turn races.
