Saturday's 7th race (3:35pm PT) from Santa Anita Park is the Grade II San Pasqual Stakes for 4-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.
#5 John Scott (3-1) is fresh and ready to break down the graded door. He exits less than ideal trips in the Cal Cup Classic and BC Dirt Mile and deserves another chance on conventional dirt. The synthetic lover has been stabled here since September and Espinoza has options with the versatile sort.

#6 Coil (2-1) owns the best overall numbers and handles two turns. The versatile son of Point Given won the G1 SA Sprint Championship here.
#4 Ultimate Eagle (5-2) owns dangerous early foot and is an obvious prominent throughout threat on his best day. He exits a game place finish in his needed G2 Citation turf return and it will be interesting to see if he moves forward or bounces on the surface switch. He romped in the G2 Strub here last February.
$18 to win #5
$6 Exacta 5/4-6 ($12)
