Challenges for Lava Man

first_img“He has the ability to run a distance (the Big’Cap is 1 1/2 miles),” said Jeff Bloom, head of an ownership group that will travel from as far away as Germany to attend the race. “It’s a very exciting time.” The challengers will receive seven pounds or more from Lava Man, who’s assigned 124pounds as he seeks his ninth consecutive victory in California and 12th in 13 starts in-state. Since the Cal-bred gelding, claimed for $50,000 at Del Mar in 2004, began his local dominance, he is 0for 4 out of state, where the competition has been tougher. Nine 3-year-olds were entered for the $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes on Saturday’s undercard. Favored Great Hunter drew Post 8 for the Lava Man team of Nakatani and trainer Doug O’Neill. heymodesti@aol.com (818) 713-3616 He and jockey Corey Nakatani drew Post 7 Wednesday and were made 4-5 favorites Wednesday in a Clockers’ Corner ceremony as Santa Anita set a field that includes recent big-race winners Arson Squad (Strub), Awesome Gem (San Fernando), Molengao (San Antonio), McCann’s Mojave (Sunshine Millions Classic) and Boboman (Hollywood Turf Cup). An upset possibility is 10-1 Awesome Gem – if the 4-year-old with six 1-2 finishes in eightstarts can bounce back from a fifth-place setback in the Strub. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
