Really Mr Greely, Distinctiv Passion Lock Horns

Distinctiv Passion wins at Santa Anita on 12-28-12.

Really Mr Greely, a winner of the Grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes on Nov. 22, rates a class advantage over four rival 3-year-olds in Monday’s $75,000 San Pedro Stakes at six furlongs.

Trained by Bob Baffert, the Kentucky bred colt by Horse Greely won the Prevue in virtual gate to wire fashion and then stretched out to be a well-beaten ninth in the Grade I CashCall Futurity going 1 1/16 miles on Dec. 15.

Ridden by Mike Smith in the CashCall, Really Mr Greeley will be reunited with Julien Leparoux, who guided him to the Prevue score at odds of 11-1, while earning a Beyer Speed figure of 98. A winner of two of his four lifetime starts, Really Mr Greely was an impressive 7 ½ length maiden $100,000 claiming winner going six furlongs on Nov. 4.

Owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson or John Weitman, Really Mr Greely has earnings of $85,620.

Trainer Jeff Bonde will counter with the ultra-quick Distinctiv Passion, who seeks his third consecutive win in the San Pedro. Breaking from the rail (as he will in the San Pedro), he rocketed to a 2 ½ length gate to wire allowance win on Dec. 28, setting fractions of 21.60, 44.20, 56.00, and getting six furlongs in 1:08.60. Ridden in all four previous starts by Edwin Maldonado, Distinctiv Passion earned a career best 93 Beyer Speed figure in his most recent start.

Owned by Brown or Klein or Lebherz, he has a record of 4-2-0-1 and earnings of $74,400.

Hear the Ghost, a Kentucky-bred gelding by Ghostzapper, will try to pick up the pieces from off the pace as he won in that fashion in his only start on Dec. 15 going six furlongs. Owned by Halo Farms or Hollendorfer and trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Hear the Ghost will be ridden back by Juan Hernandez.

The complete field for the San Pedro, to be run as the second race on Monday, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Distinctiv Passion, Edwin Maldonado, 117; Disarm, Joe Talamo, 115; Really Mr Greely, Julien Leparoux, 122; Hear the Ghost, Juan Hernandez, 115, and Resist, Mario Gutierrez, 115.
