Grade I winner Southern Image, ridden comfortably by Victor Espinoza, ranged up three wide on the outside, then won a brief stretch battle with Excess Summer to register a commanding three-length victory in the $1 million Barretts/CTBA Classic on Sunshine Millions Day at Santa Anita Saturday.
Trainer Bobby Frankel entered Midas Eyes as an entry with Peace Rules in Saturday's $1 million Barretts/CTBA Classic, the marquee race on Sunshine Millions Day at Santa Anita Park, but the son of Touch Gold will only run if the weather turns inclement, which is not likely.
Southern Image, winner of the grade I Malibu Stakes on opening day of the Santa Anita meet, is likely to make his next start in the $1 million Barretts/CTBA Classic on the Jan. 26 Sunshine Millions card.
