Sadler Hopes Switch Rebounds at Santa Anita

Switch with Garrett Gomez up wins the A Gleam Handicap at Betfair Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California on July 14, 2012.

With two wins, a second and two thirds in five starts at Santa Anita, Switch could be considered a horse for course. John Sadler holds that opinion as the daughter of Quiet American awaits the Grade I, “Win and You’re In” Zenyatta Stakes on Saturday.

The 5-year-old mare owned by the C R K Stable of Susan and Lee Searing will be ridden by Garrett Gomez, who won the Grade II A Gleam Handicap on her at Betfair Hollywood Park on July 14.

“She’s a good horse on this track,” the trainer said, “and Gomez won the A Gleam on her last summer, so he knows her.”

Sadler also has Capo Bastone entered in Saturday’s FrontRunner Stakes for 2-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles.

“He’s a very nice horse,” Sadler said of the chestnut son Street Boss. “He was an impressive winner first time out, and in the (Grade I Del Mar) Futurity, he just got a tough trip where he couldn’t find the right spot on the track, but he only got beat less than three lengths.

“He really didn’t have that much room to run, so it was a good race for him. He closes well; two turns should be good for him.”

The field for the Zenyatta, formerly the Lady’s Secret, which goes as race eight of 11: Amani, Rafael Bejarano, 3-1; Love Theway Youare, David Flores, 12-1; Switch, Garrett Gomez, 7-2; Joyful Victory, Rosie Napravnik, 12-1; Star Billing, Victor Espinoza, 6-1; Include Me Out, Joe Talamo, 5-2; Love and Pride, Martin Garcia, 4-1; Via Villagio, Martin Pedroza, 20-1; and Miss Mittagong, Mario Gutierrez, 20-1.
