Jedi Mind Trick Seeks Four-Bagger in Speakeasy

California-bred Jedi Mind Trick seeks his fourth consecutive win in Monday’s $100,000 Speakeasy Stakes, a race that has attracted a field of five 2-year-olds at six furlongs.

Trained by John Sadler, Jedi Mind Trick comes off an impressive neck victory versus statebreds in the $150,000 I’m Smokin Stakes going six furlongs at Del Mar on Sept. 2.

Sold privately following a 7 ¼ length maiden $25,000 claiming win at Sacramento July 19, Jedi Mind Trick drew post position three and will be ridden back by Victor Espinoza.  Owned by Doubledown Stables Inc., he has won three of his four starts and has banked $139,828.

Third, beaten one length in the Grade I Del Mar Futurity Sept. 4, the Bob Baffert-trained Can the Man pressed the pace in the Grade I, 1 1/16 miles FrontRunner Stakes at Santa Anita Sept. 28, finishing fourth, beaten five lengths at odds of 2-1 in a field of 10.

A first-out maiden special weight winner going 5 ½ furlongs at Del Mar Aug. 17, Can the Man, a Kentucky-bred colt by Into Mischief, is owned by Kaleem Shah Inc.  He has banked $96,000 from a 3-1-0-1 mark and will be ridden for the fourth time in a row by Martin Garcia.  Can the Man, who has run in blinkers in all three starts, will go with blinkers off in the Speakeasy.

A winner of the Hollywood Juvenile Championship on July 13, California-bred Alpine Luck has been idle since finishing a well beaten eighth in the Del Mar Futurity.  By Lucky J.H., Alpine Luck is owned by his breeder, Heinz Steinmann.  He’ll be ridden for the fifth time in-a-row by Gary Stevens, who has guided him to both of his career wins.

Trained by Mike Harrington, Alpine Luck has $150,034 in earnings from an overall mark of 6-2-0-2.

The complete field for the Speakeasy Stakes, to be run as the fourth race on a 10-race program Sunday, with jockeys and weights in post position order:  Hi Fashioned, Agapito Delgadillo, 122; Brother Soldier, Edwin Maldonado, 120; Jedi Mind Trick, Victor Espinoza, 122; Alpine Luck, Gary Stevens, 122, and Can the Man, Martin Garcia, 122.

First post time on Monday, Columbus Day, is 1 p.m.  Santa Anita will offer One Dollar beers, sodas and hot dogs throughout the day.  Admission gates open at 11 a.m.
