Trainers pleased with Santa Anita surface

For trainer Gary Stute, Santa Anita's new dirt main track means happy days are here again.


The new surface, made up of 90 percent sand and 10 percent clay, debuted earlier this week when about 100 horses jogged and cantered Monday morning over what track superintendent Richard Tedesco calls "a sandy loam track."


Tedesco said Belmont Park, Saratoga, Churchill Downs and the Fair Grounds are all sandy loam tracks.


What's important to Stute is they are not synthetic tracks.


He sent out four horses Thursday on the first morning horses officially worked over Santa Anita's newest $3.5 million investment, including three that went 48 seconds and change while breezing four furlongs.
