Six South Florida-trained stakes runners boarded the Tex Sutton Forwarding charter flight Wednesday morning at nearby Opa Locka Airport en route to Los Angeles for Saturday’s Sunshine Million races at Santa Anita.

Haras Santa Maria de Araras’ Palladio (Roger Attfield) and Ashbrook Farm’s Wicked Style (Rusty Arnold) are entered in the $500,000 Classic, Glen Hill Farm’s Closeout (Tom Proctor) and E.J. Sukley’s Tight Precision (Tom Proctor) in the $300,000 Filly & Mare Turf and Desperado Stables’ Rate of Exchange (Marty Wolfson) and David Ross’ Libor Lady (Michael Pino) in the $200,000 Filly & Mare Sprint.

The only jockey confirmed to travel in either direction Saturday for the rich races is 2009 Gulfstream meet champion Jose Lezcano, who flies to California and is named on Sleep Tight for trainer Mike Mitchell in the Filly & Mare Sprint and Closeout for trainer Tom Proctor in the Filly & Mare Turf.

Four stakes runners from the three Sunshine Millions races at Gulfstream arrived on the Tex Sutton charter on Tuesday before the return trip Wednesday.

Gary and Cecil Barber’s Machismo (John Sadler) runs in the $200,000 Sprint, Guy Francone’s Tie Rod in the $300,000 Turf along with Jerry Hollendorfer and partners’ Christmas Ship and Robert Adams’ Unforgotten in the $300,000 Distaff.

The plane stopped over in New Orleans to pick up Unforgotten for trainer Dallas Stewart.

Several others in the three races will van in from the Tampa Bay-Ocala area including Jagger Stable’s Sneaking Uponyou (Jamie Ness), owner-trainer Kenneth Hoffman’s Rockefeller for the Sprint along with Mac Fehsenfeld’s Ballonenostrikes and trainer Dennis Manning’s Roman Tiger for the Turf.
