Only Five to ‘Pick’ From in Los Al Derby


Blended Citizen | Coady

Draft Pick (Candy Ride {Arg}), winner of Santa Anita’s GIII Affirmed S. June 10, seeks his third straight victory in Saturday’s GIII Los Alamitos Derby. The streaking bay graduated at sixth asking in his prior trip to the post in Arcadia May 12.

Blended Citizen (Proud Citizen), hero of Turfway’s GIII Jeff Ruby Steaks Mar. 17 and Belmont’s GIII Peter Pan S. May 12, looks to get back on track after a well-beaten ninth, beaten 51 3/4 lengths, in the GI Belmont S. June 9.

Runaway Sir Barton S. victor Ax Man (Misremembered) dueled and tired to finish a distant third as the 1-2 chalk in Churchill’s GIII Matt Winn S. June 16. He has been favored in all five of his career starts.
