Santa Anita: Skellytown wins three-way photo, claimed


Skellytown prevailed in a three-way photo finish in Thursday's sixth race, winning for the second time at this meeting and for the fourth time in his last six starts.

Trained by Richard Mandella, Skellytown ($6.60) finished a head in front of 2-1 favorite Uffizi, who finished a nose in front of Rumba Along, who closed well through the stretch. Skellytown was the second choice in the betting, and the third first or second choice to win through the first four pick six races on Thursday.

Skellytown was claimed in a three-way shake by Mike Mitchell, the trainer of Uffizi.
