Post: 6:36 pm ET
Purse: $150,000
Grade: II
Type: T
Distance: 7f
Age: 3 years olds
Turf: Dirt, left-handed

Santa Anita Park
285 W Huntington Drive
Arcadia, California, 91007


The 7f G2 San Vicente S. offers no Kentucky Derby qualifying points but serves as an important West Coast prep on the road to the Santa Anita Derby and to Louisville. Of the six entered, only speedball Caballo Del Cielo is not an early bird Triple Crown nominee. G3 Hollywood Prevue show finisher Shakin It Up is the most accomplished of the bunch. He ll be joined by last out maiden-winning stablemates Belvin and War Academy in Bob Baffert s three-pronged assault on the 150,000 purse. Treasury Bill could get the money after closing from the clouds to break his maiden last month. Mudflats makes his first start on the left coast after a disappointing debut for new connections in the G2 Jerome S. Caballo Del Cielo could prove uncatchable if left loose on the lead.
