Kristo, Midnight Hawk Set for Sham

Santa Anita Park
The stage is set for what could be a pre-Kentucky Derby showdown on Saturday when impressive maiden winners Kristo and Midnight Hawk meet in the Grade III, $100,000 Sham Stakes for 3-year-olds at one mile.

Kristo, a $500,000 son of Distorted Humor trained by John Sadler for the Hronis brothers, Kosta and Pete, worked six furlongs Sunday under Rafael Bejarano in 1:12.80.

The bay colt is coming off a 6 ¾-length maiden victory at 1 1/16 miles Oct. 31 at Santa Anita. It was his third start. He was second in his first two, but was the 3-10 favorite each race.

Midnight Hawk, a gray son of 2007 and 2008 Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner Midnight Lute bred by Mike Pegram, won his maiden outing by 6 ¼ lengths after a slow start, going 7 ½ furlongs at Hollywood on Dec. 13. Mike Smith, who was aboard that day, retains the mount.

I like both these horses. Small field but it should still be a good prep
