John Sadler’s Kristo is co-third choice on the morning-line at odds of 4-1. This Distorted Humor colt finished nearly two lengths behind Midnight Hawk in the Sham (G3) last out, but is likely to improve in his second start for the year. He’s earned Brisnet speed figures in the 90s in four of his five races and is likely to be on the lead with Midnight Hawk just behind. Jockey Joel Rosario inherits the mount from Rafael Bejarano.
The field of nine from the rail out, with odds, is Home Run Kitten 30-1, Unstoppable Colby 20-1, Rprettyboyfloyd 12-1, California Chrome 3-1, Sawyer’s Hill 30-1, Kristo 4-1, Schoolofhardknocks 8-1, Midnight Hawk 4-1, and Recanted 20-1. It was announced late Thursday through Twitter that Baffert’s Bayern would scratch due to a bruised foot.
The San Felipe is the 5th race on Santa Anita’s Saturday card with a scheduled post time of 5:00 p.m. EST. It can be seen on HRTV and TVG. Free PPs provided by Brisnet.
