BC_Challenge_Logo The $400,000, GI Shoemaker Mile, for 3yo and up 1-mile turfers, over the Santa Anita turf course will be the first of 2 big GI’s at Santa Anita this Saturday as this race will also double as a “Win and You’re In” race for this year’s B/C Mile event!

Free Past Performances,

A very good field of 7 top 1-mile turfers will go to the post for this race #7 on the Santa Anita Saturday card!

Winning Prize , winner of the GII Arcadia and GI Frank E Kilroe Mile, winning both races in front running style and in sub 1:33 times, too! He should be the post time favorite and well deserved too!

Obviously , is the 2013 returning champ in this race and last time out won the GIII American Stakes here beating Chipsallin by 5 plus lengths! A multiple graded winner at this distance and a must use in your exotics and multi’s!

Silentio , 3rd in that same GIII American Stakes here last out. He won the GII Citation at BHP last Nov. and is a multiple grade winner, too. Tends to stalk the pace and hit the board most times!

Jack Milton, winner of the GIII Poker Stakes at Belmont most recently with a nice 5w stretch run for the win. Clicked off a 1:33 flat in that race which is rather good for either Belmont turf course. Dead Closer here!

Summer Front , is also a multiple graded winner, coming 2nd in the GIII Fort Marcy at Belmont Park most recently. Another closer type here so do not look for him early!

Tom’s Tribute, a last time out winner of the Thunder Road Stakes here at Santa Anita clocking a blistering 1:31.3 1-mile turf time in that win! Tends to not do as well at the Graded level, however! Does his best racing as a closer!

Pulpit’s Express , winner of a May 26 $20k turf 1x alw mile here at Santa Anita last out but just isn’t in the same class as the rest of this field!

Post Time” – for Race #7, – 4:00 pm PDT!
