​Santa Anita Stakes Recaps for Saturday (1-30-21)

San Pasqual Stakes (G2)

Five horse field and Tizamagician set the pace from the inside post. Zestful tracked from the outside post and King Guillermo and Express Train chased. Post time favorite Idol was patiently handled in last. King Guillermo caved early and Tizamagician tried to edge clear, but Express Train angled out around the far turn and into the stretch, and he puled clear to score by a comfortable 3-1/4 lengths. Tizamagician held off Idol to score the runner-up spot by a neck. Zestful weakened to 4th and King Guillermo was well behind the rest in last place.

Robert Lewis Stakes (G3)

Medina Spirit set sail for the lead from the inside post and Wipe the Slate and Parnelli were in chase mode. Medina Spirit was clear by a length and had to run hard throughout. He put away the two aforementioned chasers, and Roman Centurian and Hot Rod Charlie came after him in the stretch. Medina Spirit appeared to be in deep water but he dug deep and somehow held off the two closers in a gritty neck victory. Roman Centurian was a nose better than Hot Rod Charlie for 2nd, and they were 11-lengths clear of Spielberg. Parnelli and Wipe the Slate finished well behind the rest, and that is significant because Medina Spirit ran them into the ground and won the race.
