STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 2019

  • SHOW IT N MOE IT SEEKS FIRST GRADED STAKES VICTORY
  • MANDATORY $3 MILLION JACKPOT AT END OF RAINBOW?
  • HALL OF FAMER McANALLY ADDS TO SANTA ANITA WINS

OUTSIDE POST SHOULDN’T HAMPER SHOW IT N MOE IT

Good news and bad news for Gary Sherlock in Sunday’s Grade III Los Flores Stakes: the consistent filly he trains, Show It N Moe It, goes from the inside to the outside in the six furlong test for older fillies and mares.

The bad news, she’s moving from a victory against California-breds in the Feb. 24 Spring Fever Stakes to a graded stakes in open company. She has never won a graded race.

Show It N Moe It, who will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano for the ninth consecutive time, broke from the rail winning the Spring Fever and drew eight of nine for the Los Flores.

“The outside is better, but I’m going from a Cal-bred to a Grade III, and she’s never won a graded race, but she was third in one (Grade III LA Woman, 6 ½ furlongs here on Oct. 7, 2018),” Sherlock said of the four-year-old daughter of Grace Upon Grace, who has a 6-4-4 record from 19 starts and earnings of $435,604.

“She’s doing really well,” Sherlock added, “plus I’ve got no other place to run her.”

The $100,000 Los Flores, race eight of nine with a 1 p.m. first post time: Amuse, Drayden Van Dyke, 5-1; Spectator, Flavien Prat, 8-1; Lady Suebee, Joel Rosario, 6-1; True Royalty, Aaron Gryder, 20-1; Phantom Proton, Mario Gutierrez, 20-1; Danuska’s My Girl, Geovanni Franco, 6-1; Dream Tree, Mike Smith, 3-1; Emboldened, Joe Talamo, 4-1; Show It N Moe It, Rafael; Bejarano, 5-1; and Moon Kitty, Evin Roman, 20-1.

POTENTIAL $3 MILLION PAYOUT FOR SINGLE TICKET RAINBOW PICK SIX JACKPOT

With a CHRB-approved mandatory payout on the table and the likelihood of a $3 million pool looming, there is a 20 cent Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot into Saturday at Santa Anita of $815,939.

The popular wager, which allows players to cover 10 times as many horses per race than the original two dollar minimum Pick Six, generated $158,614 in “new” money wagered Friday, helping to create a total Rainbow Six pool of $938,243. The huge pool helped provide a hefty payoff of $9,413.60 on nine consolation tickets with six winners each.

With an 11-race card on tap, today’s Rainbow Six will be comprised of races six through 11, a sequence that will include the Grade I, $1 million Santa Anita Derby (race eight) and the Grade I, $600,000 Santa Anita Handicap (race 10).

Approximate post time for race six is 2:40 p.m. PT.
