INGLEWOOD, Calif. - The field for the Grade 1, $300,000 Malibu Stakes over seven furlongs on Santa Anita's opening day, Dec. 26,  is expected to include The Lumber Guy and Jimmy Creed, who were second and ninth in the Breeders' Cup Sprint at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

Friday at Hollywood Park, The Lumber Guy worked six furlongs in 1:14.20. The Malibu Stakes will be his first start for trainer Neil Drysdale. The winner of 4 of 7 starts and $735,800 for owner Barry Schwartz, The Lumber Guy was previously trained by Michael Hushion in New York.

Rider looks like he's all over this horses mouth. I love this colt. Hope he doesn't go bad out there in Hollywood. Mr. Drysdale please keep him in good care. And good luck in Malibu.
