John Scott Starts New Year in San Pasqual

Carla Gaines hopes to get the New Year off to a winning start when she runs John Scott in Saturday’s San Pasqual Stakes. It will mark the first start for the 6-year-old gelding owned and bred by the Harris Farms since his fourth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile at Santa Anita last Nov. 3.

“He’s coming up to the race very well,” Gaines said of the consistent California-bred son of Bertrando, who has never been worse than fourth in 10 career starts. He has two stakes wins to his credit, although not graded. The San Pasqual, a forerunner to the Santa Anita Handicap on March 2, is a Grade II test for 4-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles.

The field for the San Pasqual, race seven of nine: Jaycito, Julien Leparoux; Hoorayforhollywood, Joe Talamo; Tres Borrachos, Garrett Gomez; Ultimate Eagle, Martin Pedroza; John Scott, Victor Espinoza; Coil, Martin Garcia; Bank the Eight, Rafael Bejarano; Key Decision, Edwin Maldonado; and Golden Itiz, Jose Valdivia Jr.
