Gamely Tops Holiday Weekend at Santa Anita

Some of the top distaffers on the West Coast will travel nine panels on the turf in the $300,000 Gamely S. (G1). This Memorial Day feature could mark the U. S. debut of Aguafria, for trainer Neil Drysdale. This four-year-old filly by More Than Ready has been though of pretty well as a progressing type in France, and though she’s a question mark from a class stand point at this stage of her career, she surely has appeal in a race lacking a total standout.

Stormy Lucy has been hot with a pair of wins in succession and should be a decent price in the field for trainer Ed Moger. Parranda has won three of her last four, including a fine score in the Wilshire (G3) here most recently, and could be a live one for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. American Beauty S. queen Moone’s My Name, Group 1 heroine Miss Serendipity, second in the Santa Barbara H. (G3) most recently, all should have a say in the outcome.

Grade 2 hero Wild Dude, a big second in the Potrero Grande S. (G2) last time; Grade 3 winner Super Ninety Nine, off since a third in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) in 2013; Multiple stakes winner Wine Police and Potrero Grande third Cyclometer, look like a few of the top draws for the $100,000 Los Angeles H. (G3), also on the Holiday.

Saturday will play host to the $200,000 Charles Whittingham Memorial S. (G2). Last Tycoon S. (G3) victor Quick Casablanca, multiple Group 1 hero Fly Lexis Fly, San Luis Rey (G2) star Fire with Fire and course specialist Bright Thought, appear to be the main players in this test.
