Last updated: 1/6/05 5:38 PM


The one-two finishers from the Goodwood Breeders’ Cup H. (G2), LUNDY’S
LIABILITY (Brz) (Candy Stripes) and TOTAL IMPACT (Chi) (Stuka), will meet again
at Santa Anita on Saturday in the $150,000 San Pasqual H. (G2). The former
captured the U.A.E. Derby (UAE-G2) in March before being transferred to trainer
Bobby Frankel and won his first U.S. appearance in the Goodwood. He’s seeking to
rebound off a sixth in the Clark H. (G2) last out. Total Impact captured the
Hollywood Gold Cup (G1) in July and shipped to the Far East for a commendable
fourth-place showing in November’s Japan Cup (Jpn-G1) most recently.

Seven horses will contest the 1 1/16-mile event. Lundy’s Liability, who will
carry a 119-pound impost with jockey David Flores, will break from the rail.
Total Impact, the 120-pound highweight with Victor Espinoza, comes next in the
starting gate and to their outside are EXCESSIVEPLEASURE (In Excess [Ire]), Jon
Court, 114; SIGFRETO (Spunky Rascal), Omar Figueroa, 111; FORMAL ATTIRE (Formal
Gold), Tony Farina, 113; HABANEROS (Tabasco Cat), Brice Blanc, 114; and CONGRATS
(A.P. Indy), Tyler Baze, 114.

The $150,000 San Gorgonio H. (G2) features 11 fillies and mares over nine
grassy furlongs earlier on the card. Grade 1 queen MEGAHERTZ (GB) (Pivotal) is
the 121-pound highweight and comes off an excellent effort against males in the
Hollywood Turf Cup (G1) where she finished second by a head. Garrett Gomez rides
the Bobby Frankel-trained six-year-old mare.

ASK FOR THE MOON (Fr) (Dr Fong) was a Group 1 winner at three last season in
France and will make her U.S. debut here for new trainer Laura de Seroux. Grade
2 heroines HOH BUZZARD (Ire) (Alhaarth) and THEATER R. N. (Theatrical [Ire]) are
also contenders.

The complete San Gorgonio field, from inside out with jockeys and weights, is
Hoh Buzzard, Flores, 116; Megahertz; Ask for the Moon, Espinoza, 119; FENCELINENEIGHBOR (Wild Rush), Luis Jauregui, 114; DOLLY WELLS (Arg) (Poliglote
[GB]), Brian Eide, 110; DROUGHT BREAKER (Steinlen [GB]), Blanc, 110; PENNY’S
FORTUNE (Storm Cat), Jose Valdivia Jr., 115; Theater R. N., Rene Douglas, 116; SHEZSOSPIRITUAL (Fly Till Dawn), Baze, 113; NAVAJA (NZ) (Daggers Dawn), Alex
