Harris Farms horse set to defend Santa Anita title

One Central Valley horse is back in Santa Anita on Saturday to defend his title.

Desert Law, owned by Harris Farms, will race in the $100,000 Thor’s Echo Stakes at Santa Anita Park.

Post time is set for approximately 3:30 p.m.

Desert Law – a 6-year-old chestnut gelding – won the six-furlong race last year by 6 ¼ lengths.

Flavien Prat will ride Desert Law for the first time, and Carla Gaines is the trainer.

The last time Desert Law raced was last July at the Grade 1 Bing Crosby Stakes at Del Mar, where he placed second.

Desert Law has won five of his 16 lifetime starts, including four of nine at six furlongs.
