Ziconic was 4th out of a 6 horse field... he was last most of the way around and passed two tiring horses in the end.

Time for him to be retired and gelded, to find a new career like Coz.

Is he as difficult to manage as Cozmic One was? He is a lot flashier, and if he is indeed easier to handle, he could be an even better retraining prospect.

The field appears to have a lot of expensive/well-bred horseflesh trying to do the same, with horses by Frankel, War Front, Fastnet Rock, Scat Daddy and Silent Name joining Zen's boy in the gate,
The Frankel, Frankincense, who finished third, is out of a half sister to Excelebration (IRE), Lancaster Bomber, and Mull of Killough (IRE).

The War Front in the race, Combat Zone, was a $450k Keeneland purchase and is a full brother to graded stakes placed Doctor Chit. He finished second to last.

Seau (Distorted Humor), a 1/2 to Super Saver, broke his maiden in the 7th at SA. Didn't see whether or not he was claimed.

All Out Blitz and Ax Man dueled on the front for much of the race, setting some pretty fast fractions. They both had nothing left in the stretch, finishing way behind Kanthaka. Even 2nd-place Nero ran better than Ax Man. :(
Not sure where Baffert goes with the Misremembered colt after today. Is the race a toss, is he better off sprinting...or will we see a different jockey on him next time? :?

Hoping the Cali sun is agreeing with this guy- he blew a bullet on the 10th over the surface- and a nice gate work before that

Well-beaten 7th, but perhaps she would prefer dirt next time.

I'm a Lucky Guy is entered to run on February 18, 2018, at OAKLAWN PARK.

Still reported as a colt, in for the $12,500 tag, was in for $20k last race. This will be his 3rd start, finished 10th (last) and 7th. I guess he couldn't overcome his early birth problems, but I hate to see him drop through the claiming ranks when he shows little talent for racing.

Morse Code (Tapit x Serena's Cat) is running in a few minutes in the 8th at Santa Anita, a 7 furlong AOC. The colt went for just $32,000 last fall at Keeneland, but his new connections sound very high on how well the half to Honor Code is training.

ETA: Looked like he finished 6th. :( Had a very wide trip but was just even-paced in the stretch.

Raced at just 412kg winning today over 1400m at Kyoto

3f DERNIER OR (Stay Gold x Oriental Art (Mejiro McQueen)) ridden by Orfevre's regular jockey Kenichi Ikezoe made it 2 from 3 with a gutsy win.
