OffTrackBetting.com - The G3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes will take place this Saturday, February 4 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Horse three years old will be after the winner's share of the $150,000 and the 10 qualifying points toward the Kentucky Derby when they line up and go 1 1/16 miles on Santa Anita's dirt track.
A wide open and quality field of five will line up in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes - race 2 on Santa Anita's stacked Saturday card. Post time is 1:00 PM. Here is a look into the past performances of all five combatants for this "Road to the Kentucky Derby" points gathering G3 stakes.
Sheer Flattery - Jerry Hollendorfer trained colt has a win and a second place finish in his four career starts. He makes his stakes debut Saturday finally having broken maiden last time out - at this distance on this track December 31. Before that was a fifth, a second behind the terrific Mastery, and a fourth respectively in a trio of MSW races to start his career. Sheer Flattery has been a tad tough to figure out but will chase a second straight win in his major step up in competition. Mike Smith is scheduled to ride.
Term of Art - Doug O'Neill trained colt has placed in four of six career starts - two wins, a second and a third place finish. He enters off a disappointing fifth in the G3 Sham Stakes on this track January 7 after a career-best effort - a win in the G3 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes at Del Mar November 27,a ninth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and a maiden score on this track October 8. Term Of Art has been inconsistent so far and hopes for a second graded stakes score in three starts Saturday. Tyler Baze has been tabbed to ride the only graded stakes winner in the field from gate 4.

Irap - Doug O'Neill trained colt has a second and a third place finish in his four career starts. He started his career with a third and a fourth respectively in a pair of MSW races and went on to a very respectable runner-up finish in the G1 Los Alamitos Cash Call Futurity December 10. Last time out was a disappointing fourth behind Sheer Flattery after tiring as 9-5 favorite in a MSW on this track December 31. Irap has been knocking on the door and will be after his first career win Saturday from post 2. Mario Gutierrez rides.

Dangerfield had been just OK before his last three starts and hopes to build on those good performances from post 3. Kent Desormeaux will be in the irons.
Royal Mo - has three career starts for trainer John Shirreffs with a win and two runner-up finishes. He started his career with consecutive seconds in MSW races - the last coming on this track November 6 and most recently broke maiden at Del Mar by a pretty good 1 1/4 lengths November 27.
