Brad Free’s top 3-year-olds at Santa Anita on March 16


AMERICAN PHAROAH re-emerged as California’s leading Kentucky Derby hope after his March 14 romp in the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn. Though he is not expected to start in California until after the Triple Crown, American Pharoah is based here and therefore jumps to the top of the list over Santa Anita Derby probable starters DORTMUND and PROSPECT PARK. Bob Baffert trains American Pharoah and Dortmund.
