Ten Juveniles Entered in Eddie Logan

The memory of the late Eddie Logan, Santa Anita’s legendary shoe shine attendant who brightened the days of untold thousands from Santa Anita’s founding in 1934 until his passing at age 98 in January, 2009, will once again be honored on Saturday with the $75,000 Eddie Logan Stakes for 2-year-olds at one mile on turf.

A field of 10 juveniles have been engaged, including Gabriel Charles, a winner of Santa Anita’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Preview Stakes at 6 ½ furlongs on Nov. 3. A first-out maiden special weight winner going 5 ½ furlongs on Polytrack at Del Mar July 21, Gabriel Charles was a troubled sixth, beaten 4 ½ lengths, in the seven furlong, Grade I Del Mar Futurity on Sept. 5.

Trained by Jeff Mullins, the Kentucky-bred son of Street Hero is owned by Britt or House and will again be ridden by Joe Talamo, who’s been aboard for all four of his previous outs.

Promising English-bred Rising Legend will break from the rail in the Logan and will try to build upon his impressive U.S. debut at Betfair Hollywood Park on Nov. 24, when he was a fast finishing second in the Grade III Generous Stake going a mile on turf. Trained by John Sadler, he’ll again be ridden by Julien Leparoux. Rising Legend is owned by Hronis Racing LLC.

In addition to Rising Legend, Sadler, a frequent shoe shine customer of the late Logan, will send out a total of three horses: California-bred Ballard Ruler, who comes off a half-length defeat at odds of 1-2 in a state-bred allowance, and Under Review, who shipped in from Arlington Park in Chicago to finish a close sixth, beaten 3 ¼ lengths, in the Generous.

The complete field for the Eddie Logan, which will be run as the sixth race, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Rising Legend, Julien Leparoux, 118; Will True Up, Corey Nakatani, 118; Ballard Ruler, Garrett Gomez, 118; One Firm Cat, Martin Pedroza, 118; Under Review, Martin Garcia, 116; Dancin Upside Down, Edwin Maldonado, 116; Avare, Rafael Bejarano, 118; Gabriel Charles, Joe Talamo, 118; Aerial Artist, Juan Hernandez, 116, and Condiment, Tyler Baze, 118.
