Re: Santa Anita 2019

Damn
I thought he gave a good account of himself though! Laid back, took some dirt, and almost got there in the end. He's got a bright future.
He was my top pick after that blowout at Golden Gate and I liked what I saw today, given the questions about dirt.

10yo h Vedelago (Red Clubs - Queen Shy, by Marju), 1st at Turfway Park (3/2/19). 50 - 13-5-6, $512,071.
How did an Irish-bred Italian G1 winner wind up in $5k claiming races at Turfway? And intact, no less.
His pedigree, for curiosity's sake.

Along with Hogy , another old millionaire running this weekend is 11yo Slim Shadey , seeing if he can "right the ship" at Gulfstream in a claiming race.

Racing and the NBAization of it's trainers is problematic. Not every owner has deep enough pockets to afford the day rate of the Brown's and Bafferts of the world. Solid training begets winners, but this is akin to being the really smart kid whose parents couldn't afford an SAT tutor vs. the kid wh...
