Santa Anita: Sierra claims Big Wags


Big Wags, a three-length winner of Friday's fourth race, was claimed for $12,500 by trainer Cerilo Sierra.

Sierra takes over the conditioning of a 4-year-old gelding who needed 11 races to break his maiden, on Nov. 11, and was making his second start against winners on Friday. Big Wags was previously trained by Mark Glatt.

Big Wags paid $13.20 and was the second non-favorite in the pick six sequence. In the first leg, the third race, Nahem ($17.80) won a one-mile turf race for maidens in 1:36.58. The pick six pool on Friday reached $129,855.
