Lasorda & Pincay at Santa Anita Park Saturday

Jockey Laffit Pincay Jr.

Legendary baseball Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda will be on hand Saturday to present the trophy for the Grade II San Pasqual Stakes. Lasorda, who will soon be in Arizona to work with the Dodgers’ top youngsters, is a longtime horse racing fan.

“Tommy loves racing,” said Steve Brener, who has known Lasorda for nearly 40 years and currently is part of the public relations team for the Blue Crew. “He’s excited about spending the day Saturday at Santa Anita and then he’ll be heading over to Phoenix for organizational meetings and to work with some of the Dodgers’ top young talent. He’s amazing. He’s still got tremendous energy and his love for the Dodgers, their fans, and the game of baseball is as strong today as it was when he first took over as manager back in 1976.”

Legendary retired Hall of Fame jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr. will present the trophy for Saturday’s Grade III Sham Stakes, an important steppingstone to the Grade I Santa Anita Derby. Pincay rode Sham to second-place finishes behind Secretariat in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes in 1973.

“Laffit loves baseball and Tommy’s looking forward seeing him,” said Brener. “They’ve got a lot in common--they’re both great competitors--and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Saturday’s Sham has been carded as the third race. Approximate post time is 1:30 p.m. The San Pasqual is Saturday’s seventh race, with approximate post time 3:35 p.m.

Hall of Famers up!!
