Arcadia, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will send out 4-year-old colt Hoppertunity Saturday in an effort to gain his fifth victory in the $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes at Santa Anita going 1 1/16 miles. Hoppertunity, owned by Karl Watson, Michael Pegram and Paul Weitman, has been made the 9-5 morning line favorite in the 11-horse field and will break from post 2 with Martin Garcia in the saddle. Saturdays start comes less than two months after Hoppertunity captured the Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs to close out his 3-year-old campaign. The colt pressed the pace than drove to a 1 1/2-length win over Protonico. The thing about Hoppertunity is that hes sort of a one-paced kind of horse and the way he ran off his first race ... he was just training really well, you know, Baffert said from California after the Clark victory. I was just yelling Hold on! I was watching on my phone so I couldnt see it very well. But you know what? I really wasnt worried because about 50 yards from the wire - (watching the race) on a delay - I got a text that said, Congrats. Thats why I really wasnt worried about (Protonico) looming up. Last year, along with the Clark, Hoppertunity won the Rebel Stakes at Fair Grounds followed by a runner-up result to California Chrome in the Santa Anita Derby. Hoppertunity was scratched from the Kentucky Derby just days before the race with a quarter crack of a hoof and did not race again until Oct. 29 when he got second in an allowance race at Santa Anita. With just seven starts under his belt, Hoppertunity has already earned $950,675 with three wins and two seconds. Hell get better with age so were happy. Weve got him and Bayern, Baffert noted. Baffert previously won the San Pasqual with Silver Charm (1999), Wooden Phone (2002), Congaree (2003) and Coil (2013). Majestic Harbor, trained by Sean McCarthy, is the 9-2 second pick and will start from post 3 with Tyler Baze again riding. The 7-year-old will be making his first start since running last in the $5 Million Breeders Cup Classic at Santa Anita Nov. 1. Owned by Gallant Stable, Majestic Harbor was second in last years San Pasqual to begin his 2014 campaign. He followed with a fourth in the San Antonio, first in the Tokyo City and third in the Californian before claiming the Gold Cup at Santa Anita. The horse was sixth in the Pacific Classic and fourth in the Awesome Again, both won by Shared Belief. Majestic Harbor has six wins, six seconds and fourth thirds from 26 starts for $674,014. Here is the complete field for the San Pasqual from the rail out: Quadrivium, Mike Smith, 6-1; Hoppertunity, Martin Garcia, 9-5; Majestic Harbor, Tyler Baze, 9-2; Big Cazanova, Elvis Trujillo, 5-1; Baccelo, Tiago Pereira, 30-1; Bronzo, Gary Stevens, 8-1; Salto Del Indio, Joe Talamo, 20-1; Mr. Commons, Brice Blanc, 10-1; Blue Tone, Kent Desormeaux, 12-1; Appealing Tale, Victor Espinoza, 10-1; and Tonito M., Rafael Bejarano, 10-1.

The Spanish champions decision not to sign a defender during the January transfer window may have backfired after Valencia took advantage of a lethargic, uninspired effort by its hosts at the Camp Nou, where former Spain coach Luis Aragones -- who previously coached the Catalan side -- was honoured after his death on Saturday. CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius was served with new indictment papers Wednesday containing two extra charges believed to allege that he recklessly shot his gun out the open sunroof of a car last year and fired someone elses handgun at a restaurant weeks before he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The double-amputee Olympian has already been indicted on a main charge of murder for the Feb. 14 shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp and another firearm charge for illegal possession of ammunition in his home. He now faces the two additional charges relating to firing guns in public. Pistorius will likely face all four charges at his trial starting in March, although his lawyers can argue against the new gun charges being added to his current indictment as the offences are alleged to have taken place in Johannesburg -- a different court jurisdiction to Pistorius fatal shooting of Steenkamp at his upscale villa in the South African capital, Pretoria, in the pre-dawn hours of Valentines Day. Pistorius lawyers were served with the new papers, South Africas national prosecution spokesman Nathi Mncube told The Associated Press. "What happened today is ... Mr. Pistorius was served with a new indictment." Mncube said. "We have to advise him (of the extra charges) to accord him with enough time to prepare his defence." Mncube declined to give the exact details of the new charges, only saying they "relate to the contravention of the firearms act." Mncube also said there had been no indication from Pistorius lawyers if they would challenge the adding of the charges to Pistorius indictment for the trial. Prosecutors sought special permission to include the two gun charges against Pistorius on the indictment because they did not fall in the same jurisdiction. Permission was granted by South Africas director of public prosecutions last month. Its reported in South Africa that the new charges relate to two alleged incidents where Pistorius recklessly shot a gun in public: The first when Pistorius is alleged to have fired his own licensed 9mm handgun -- the gun used to kill Steenkamp -- out the open sunroof of a car in Johannesburg while travelling with friends last year.dddddddddddd In the second in January this year, and just weeks before Steenkamps shooting death, Pistorius is said to have accidentally shot a friends gun under the table at a Johannesburg restaurant, apparently while admiring it. For both alleged offences he could be charged with public endangerment and damage to property. The multiple Paralympic champion, known as the Blade Runner, is world-famous for his carbon fiber running blades and for becoming the first amputee to compete on the track at the Olympics. He already faces a possible life sentence with a minimum of 25 years in prison if he is convicted of premeditated murder for fatally shooting Steenkamp. Pistorius says he shot her by mistake thinking she was a dangerous intruder in his house. It will be Pistorius 27th birthday on Friday and he was photographed by a newspaper this weekend while out at a Johannesburg restaurant with family, according to the paper. The City Press published photos Sunday of Pistorius in the restaurant wearing a white T-shirt and with a short beard, smiling in one photo and with a black baseball cap pulled down near his eyes in another. The newspaper also quoted Pistorius as saying that he was "anxious" about his upcoming trial. "I feel calm. I now spend most of my time with my family and I enjoy their company," Pistorius said, according to the newspaper, in rare public comments. "They are wonderful and their support is incredible. But, I must say, at the same time I am also anxious about the upcoming court case."
