Not to be overlooked on Santa Anita Derby day will be Tribunal's return in the grade II San Bernardino Handicap for older horses at 1 1/8 miles.
As part of a graded-stakes tripleheader on Derby Day, the San Bernardino has attracted the third and fourth place finishers from the March 3 Big 'Cap in Tribunal, conditioned by Bob Baffert, and the John Dolan-trained Irisheyesareflying.
Bruce Levine will send out east-coast transplant Coyote Lakes in an attempt to knock off the probable favorites. Bred in Arizona, the 7-year-old gelding has won 14 of 49 starts for earnings of $466,937. Coyote Lakes completed preparations with a five-furlong drill Tuesday in 1:00.00.
The field for the San Bernardino Handicap, from the rail out with jockeys and weights: Tribunal, David Flores, 117; Irisheyesareflying, Kent Desormeaux, 117; Coyote Lakes, Alex Solis, 115; Luster's Boy, Tyler Baze, 113, and Futural, Garrett Gomez, 115.
