Pedroza Says Blueskiesnrainbows Can Rate

Pedroza Says Blueskiesnrainbows Can Rate
In 22 career starts, Blueskiesnrainbows has been on the lead at some point in 14 of them, winning six, including the Native Diver Stakes gate to wire Dec. 14 at Hollywood Park.

That doesn’t make him a stone front-runner, according to Martin Pedroza, who has ridden the 5-year-old English Channel horse in five of his last six races, winning two of them, the aforementioned Native Diver and the Ralph M. Hinds at Fairplex Park last Sept. 22.

But on paper, Blueskiesnrainbows is likely to be at least in close attendance to the pace in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes for older horses at 1 1/16 miles.

“He doesn’t have to be in front,” Pedroza said of the Virginia-bred chestnut trained by Jerry Hollendorfer for Kelly Mitchell (Bad Boy Racing) and Stanley Whisenant (Whizway Farms). “He can have a target and sit right behind, then blow his butt away.”

The San Pasqual: Blingo, Victor Espinoza, 7-2; Blueskiesnrainbows, Martin Pedro, 2-1; Majestic City, Edwin Maldonado, 5-1; Spud Spivens, Corey Nakatani, 12-1; Majestic Harbor, Tyler Baze, 6-1; Rousing Sermon, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2; and Drill, Mike Smith, 6-1.
