Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

From DRF..... Jockey Tyler Baze apparently escaped serious injury in the final race on Friday at Santa Anita when his mount, Hot American, broke down nearing the far turn with what proved to be a fatal injury. Baze was thrown to the turf. He "walked off no problem," according to Mike Willman, the tr...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Interesting team workout from Monday that BB is gearing up.... Roadster (remember him?) goes 6F in 1.10.2 from the gate. Next fastest worker of the morning was another Baffert in 1.12.2. 18 workers in total. Along side Roadster in the gate was the unraced Reedley going just 5F, but still highly thou...

The show plunger got down early, $93,000 of the total $95,000 in the show pool is on Galilean who is 1/9 with about 12 minutes to post.
Wound up with about $300,00 in the show pool.

Re: 9th @ SA San Marcos $200K 1-1/4 Turf

I’ve noticed over the years that Spawr horses seem to get a lot of freshening, usually first off the claim. Seems like he has an inordinate amount of stock that suddenly develop breathing problems.

Also for what it’s worth...

Going from the 11 hole in the LeCompte Stakes to the rail post today has to be worth something, I'll try Plus Que Parfait today. 10/1 looks juicy.
