SADLER EYES BACK-TO-BACK BIG CAP VICTORIES

Gift Box.

Just about a year ago John Sadler was celebrating Accelerate's victory in the Santa Anita Handicap, the trainer's first ever in the track's historic race. Now he is poised to win it again with Gift Box, who worked six furlongs Friday in 1:14 for the mile and a quarter classic next Saturday, March 9.

"He looked good, went out in 27 (1:27 for seven furlongs)," Sadler said of the gray son of Twirling Candy formerly trained by Chad Brown. "We had to move his work up a day because of the rain, but we got the work in, so I'm happy."
