Spendthrift Farm's Lord Nelson appears set to continue his tear through the top-level sprints on the Southern California circuit in the $300,000 Santa Anita Sprint Championship (gr. I) Oct. 8 at Santa Anita Park.
Spendthrift Farm's Lord Nelson got up just in time to win the $300,000 Triple Bend Stakes (gr. I) June 25 at Santa Anita Park.
Lord Nelson steps back into graded company and Kobe's Back hopes to rebound in the $300,000 Triple Bend Stakes (gr. I) June 25 at Santa Anita Park.
Subtle Indian is 5-for-6 in his Oaklawn career, and counts the 2015 Gazebo Stakes and Hot Springs March 5 in his last start among his victories for trainer Robertino Diodoro.
Wild Dude and Kobe's Back, who finished 1-2 in last year's San Carlos, return in the seven-furlong sprint but must deal with lightly raced and talented Calculator.
Kobe's Back broke slowly and trailed by as many as 10 1/2 lengths, but he unleashed his patented closing kick and was just able to track down Salutos Amigos in the final strides to win the Palos Verdes Stakes (gr. II).
