Elector Gets Class Test in Triple Bend

Get Her Number, a Grade I winner at Santa Anita, will look to get back on track Benoit

West Point Thoroughbreds, Edwin Barker and William Sandbrook's Elector (Constitution), two-for-three in his young career, will take his first shot in stakes company against five rivals in the GII Triple Bend S. Sunday at Santa Anita.

Making just one start as a 3-year-old, on Dec. 26, the $65,000 Keeneland September buy stumbled early and raced greenly en route to a last-place run. Coming back at this seven-furlong trip Feb. 22, the bay was away much better and ran away to a 4 3/4-length graduation, earning a gaudy 97 Beyer. The John Sadler trainee backed that up with a wire-to-wire allowance/optional claiming success here Apr. 16.

Easily the most accomplished horse in the field is California-bred speedball Brickyard Ride (Clubhouse Ride). A three-time stakes winner last season as a 4-year-old, including a convincing four-length score in the track-and-trip GII San Carlos S., and is undefeated in four starts thus far as a 5-year-old, racking up frontrunning victories in the California-bred California Cup Sprint S., Tiznow S. and Sensational Star S. and open GIII Kona Gold S. last out here Apr. 30.

Gary Barber's Get Her Number (Dialed In), a Grade I winner over this track, will look to find himself getting back on dirt. Capturing the GI American Pharoah S. here as a juvenile, the $45,000 OBS April pickup failed to make a dent in four starts as a 3-year-old before scoring in a local allowance/optional claimer sprinting on the turf Mar. 12. He was unable to build on that when finishing 13th of 14 last out in the GIII San Francisco Mile S. on the Golden Gate lawn Apr. 30.
