Derby Prep for Stakes Saturday

On to another Kentucky Derby prep race for this Stakes Saturday.

Santa Anita Park Race 6 {Sham~G3~1 mile~3 year old~Graded Stakes}
A very good field of eight will go to the gate in this Derby prep race. Half the filed shows speed and the other half has an affinity towards coming from off the pace.  Speed figs are fairly close which should make for a competitive race. Another good one gearing towards that first Saturday in May.

#7 Calculator (Trujillo / Miller) has the edge with the highest speed number at a longer route, a four race progression, and three fabulous workouts. This son of Summation might have the proper pace to run into the stretch. Despite being a maiden, he has run tremendously in his four race career.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#3 Rockinatten (Bejarano / O'Neill) should contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four superb peaking workouts. He will be stretching out to this mile distance, but appears well prepped. This son of High Cotton is another that will be tracking the pace ready to strike.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#8 Hero Ten All (T. Baze / Mullins) should challenge with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and three supreme workouts.  This son of Rock Hard Ten should be closing swiftly in the stretch.

#1 St. Joe Bay (Pedroza / Miller) will be in the mix seeking to wire the field on the front end.  He holds the fourth highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and four excellent peaking workouts.  This son of Saint Anddan is one of two with a victory over the Santa Anita course.
