Split-squad Saturday for older horses

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
In the middle of spring training, where baseball teams often have split-squad games in order to have all the players in camp get game action, Saturday will see top older horses performing in separate stakes on opposite coasts.
While Mucho Macho Man, Will Take Charge and Game On Dude tangle against each other in the 77th running of the Santa Anita Handicap, several other top thoroughbreds will do battle in the Gulfstream Park Handicap.
Two hours before the Big 'Cap at Santa Anita Park goes off with eight in the field, an equal number of horses will go a flat mile at Gulfstream Park. Standing as the probable favorite in the eight-furlong contest is 2013 Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice.
