Temple City looked fabulous schooling in the Santa Anita paddock during the 1st race on Thursday for trainer Carla Gaines. The 4-year-old dark bay Dynaformer colt was preparing for the allowance feature at 1-1/8 miles on the turf on Friday's Santa Anita card. Owned by B. Wayne Hughes, Temple City will be ridden by Rafael Bejarano.
The field for Friday's feature also includes the highly regarded John Sadler-trained Globetrotter. In his most recent start, Temple City finished third in an optional claiming race at a mile on the turf on Mar. 18 -- a race in which Globetrotter was 2nd.
