Post Positions Drawn for Saturday's Santa Anita Derby

Post Position Draw for 2009 Santa Anita Derby.

With picture perfect Southern California weather, the post position draw for the 72nd running of the Santa Anita Derby was held following a buffet breakfast at Clockers' Corner Wednesday morning. A crowd of owners, trainers, and race fans were on hand to enjoy the annual event.

Following the draw, race connections seated at the head table gave their takes on their various post positions, and expectations for the race. Among the speakers were trainers Bob Baffert, Julio Canani, and Eoin Harty, jockeys Garrett Gomez, Corey Nakatani, and Alex Solis, and owners David Bienstock and Alex Solis Jr. The discussion was moderated by Santa Anita's Mike Willman.
