Santa Anita: Saxophone to Carava in 9-way shake


Saxophone, the easy winner of Saturday's first race, was taken in a nine-way shake by Jack Carava.

Saxophone won a $12,500 claimer over six furlongs by 4 3-4 lengths over Brinson in 1:09.06. A 6-year-old gelding, Saxophone has won three of his last five starts. He was claimed for $8,000 on Feb. 5, and won twice for Canani before being claimed on Saturday.

There were just four runners in Saturday's first race after the scratch of Instant Action, due to illness.
