Vagabond Shoes Makes U.S. Bow in Arcadia

Vagabond Shoes makes his U.S. debut in Saturday’s Grade II Arcadia Stakes at one mile on turf and John Sadler is looking forward to it.

“We got a good draw (post position three),” said Santa Anita’s training leader through Thursday with 13 wins. “I was so happy to see him draw inside in a big field.”

Vagabond Shoes worked six furlongs on Santa Anita’s firm turf course Monday in 1:13.20.

“It was a little bit wet because of the rain,” Sadler said. “I’ve had the horse since sometime before this meet started. He’s got a very good record overseas. He was a Group 3 winner last year . . . he’s run all over the place. He’s a nice horse.”

The field for the Arcadia: Klisz, Mike Smith, 15-1; Forest Mouse, Edwin Maldonado, 20-1; Vagabond Shoes, Julien Leparoux, 8-1; Tribal Tribute, Gary Stevens, 30-1; Sebastian Flyte, Agapito Delgadillo, 30-1; Akkadian, Garrett Gomez, 8-1; Silentio, Rafael Bejarano, 6-1; Willyconker, Kevin Krigger, 12-1; Key Decision, Victor Espinoza, 20-1; Clubhouse Ride, Aaron Gryder, 20-1; Wilkinson, Martin Pedroza, 9-2; Chosen Miracle, Tyler Baze, 6-1; Suggestive Boy, Joe Talamo, 9-2; and Strong Suit, Jamie Spencer, 4-1.
