The post positions were drawn Thursday for the 62nd running of the $1 million 1 1/4-mile Big 'Cap on Saturday. As expected, four of the heavyweights of the handicap division were entered, making this the best race for the older horses so far this year. The only horse missing who was expected to run is defending champ Malek.

Silver Charm will have to redeem himself for his sluggish race in the Donn Handicap where he was dusted by Puerto Madero. Free House, who does his best running in California, looks tough here. Richard Mandella will be going for his third consecutive Big 'Cap win with Puerto Madero, who just ranked #1 in the NTRA poll, and Event of the Year who is coming off a nice win in the Strub Stakes.

This race is the second in the NTRA Champions on FOX series and will be broadcast live on TV from 2 to 3pm PST (5 to 6pm EST) on local FOX affiliates. Post time will be approximately 2:40 PST (5:40 EST). Santa Anita will also highlight the Big 'Cap card with a $1 million guaranteed Pick Six pool

If you are not able to catch the race on your local FOX station, you can watch or listen online with Real Video and Audio.
