Santa Anita: When We Met upsets Noblety


When We Met ended a six-race losing streak that extended nearly 18 months with an upset win in Wednesday's first race, an optional claimer on the hillside turf course. When We Met ($28.40) beat four rivals, including 1-2 favorite Noblety, who could only finish third after a slow start. When We Met finished a half-length in front of Hidden Blessing.

Noblety, who was seeking his fifth win in six starts, was claimed for $32,000 by trainer Doug O'Neill in a two-way shake. Trainer Eric Kruljac claimed Noblety last November for $40,000. In six starts for him, Noblety earned $84,120.
