Hollywood Futurity winner Point Given heads the field for Saturday's San Vicente Stakes, the final two-trun prep in Southern California for the Santa Anita Derby.
Hill Rise Handicap winner Jamaican Rum worked three furlongs in :36 4/5 Tuesday at Santa Anita in preparation for Saturday's San Felipe Stakes, the final two-turn prep for the Santa Anita Derby on April 7. A late nominee to the San Felipe, Jamaican Rum finished fourth in the Feb.3 San Vicente Stakes.
The San Felipe will be headed by Point Given, the 2000 Hollywood Futurity winner who worked seven furlongs in 1:24.80 prior to the first race at Santa Anita last Friday.
Probables for the San Felipe, with jockeys, are: I Love Silver, Eddie Delahoussaye; Jamaican Rum, Alex Solis; Skip to the Stone, Corey Nakatani; Gold Trade, David Flores; Point Given, Gary Stevens; and Dr. Park, Tyler Baze.
