CATALINA CRUISER SET TO DEFEND SAN DIEGO TITLE; MCKINZIE READY FOR WHITNEY

Hronis Racing’s Catalina Cruiser, primed for his title defense in Saturday’s Grade II $200,000 San Diego Handicap, will face five challengers in the 1 1/16-mile event that is the main stepping stone to the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic on August 17.

“We had him (Catalina Cruiser) out this morning, he’s looking good and we’re excited to have him running here again,” trainer John Sadler said early Wednesday morning.

Catalina Cruiser drew the rail in a six horse field that features two pairs of uncoupled entries; one from Sadler, one from Peter Eurton. Catalina Cruiser is seeking to repeat last year’s victory in this race.

McKenzie All Set for Whitney

McKinzie, second in the Met Mile at Belmont Park on June 8, went five furlongs in a bullet 59 seconds flat under Joe Talamo. Del Mar clockers had McKinzie galloping out to six furlongs in 1:12.
