Santa Anita Derby Field Shaping Up
Probable for Saturday's Grade I Santa Anita Derby, but subject to change, are 10 runners.
--Baby Blake, a Mike Pender trainee that's been running in starter allowance company;
--Blueskiesnrainbows from the Bob Baffer barn. He was third to Fed Biz and Consulado last time out, a Feb. 26 allowance race;
--Brother Francis , the best maiden in California, trained by Jim Cassidy;
--Creative Cause, the presumptive favorite in the race after winning the Grade II San Felipe;
--I'll Have Another, winner of the Grade II Robert B. Lewis, in his first race off the layoff.
--Liaison, the Baffert horse that fell after clipping heels in the Lewis and was fourth in the San Felipe;
--Longview Drive for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer unless he goes to the Grade III Illinois Derby;
--Midnight Transfer for trainer Carla Gaines. He finished third in the San Felipe;
--Paynter , formerly named M C's Dream, an expensive colt that has run one race going 5 1/2 furlongs and won easily.
--Senor Rain , winner of an allowance at Santa Anita last time out.
