Santa Anita: Scratches for Monday


There are scratches in five of the nine races on Monday's program, which will feature turf racing in the first, fourth, sixth and eighth races. Conditions are clear with temperatures in the mid-50s. The main fast is likely to be fast, and quick. The turf course may start out as good, but there has been no rain in the last 36 hours.

In the first race, Italian Rules is scratched from the also-eligible list. In the fourth race, Indian Jones is out of a $50,000 claimer on the hillside turf course.

There are major scratches in the day's two stakes. In the sixth race, the Grade 3 La Habra Stakes for 3-year-old fillies on the hillside turf course - A Z Warrior, Bloemer Girl and Hout Bay will not start.

In the eighth race, Restless Soul, Evening Jewel (the 4-1 morning-line favorite) and Prytania are out of the $150,000 Buena Vista Handicap.

In the ninth race, Warrens Extrabonus is out of a maiden claimer over five furlongs.
