B. Wayne Hughes said Thursday morning that Don't Get Mad will run in the grade I Santa Anita Derby April 9 rather than the April 16 Arkansas Derby (gr. II), for which the son of Stephen Got Even was also being considered.
If Bob Baffert has his way and the weather cooperates, Roman Ruler's long-awaited 3-year-old debut will take place Saturday in the $250,000 San Felipe Stakes (gr. II) at 1 1/16 miles.
Amerman Racing's Golden Shine threw his hat into Triple Crown ring at Santa Anita on Wednesday with an impressive 7 1/2-length triumph in a 1 1/16-mile non-winners "other than" allowance race.
