Santa Anita
Arcadia, CA
.
The attention last weekend was mostly on Pimlico for the Preakness and undercard races, but the big tracks always come thru with some big racing of their own. This includes Santa Anita, the home of the 2016 Breeders Cup which will be in November.
.
The big race on Saturday was the Kona Gold G2 for 4 and up going 6.5f on the dirt. Subtle Indian was the even money favorite but set some blistering fractions that he couldn’t hold on to for the win.
.
Instead he finished second behind 9-5 Wild Dude, who took advantage of the fast pace, coming from 5th to win in the late stretch.

On Sunday, the featured race was the Californian G2 Stakes, for 3up going 9f on the dirt. Again there was an even money favorite, Lietenant Colonel, who set some serious fractions for the first 3/4 mile but could only hold on for 3rd.
.
The longshot Second Summer was happy to convert on the fast pace, winning at 9-1. Hard Aces at 5-1 also capitalized, coming from last to finish 2nd at 5-1.
