What was the idea behind running these two year old stakes on a Friday instead of Saturday?
Maybe they’re mimicking the Breeder’s Cup.
What ever it was it sure didn't inspire on-track attendance, <6000 not counting the PETA sign holders out front.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

You mean the bettors using PETA's money to bet the races and buy concessions?

The more I think about it, I think it makes more and more sense to run the cheaper horses at night at Los Alamitos during Santa Anita and just give Santa Anita the exclusive Los Al dates. Los Al can run Thursday-Sunday while Santa Anita is in session and only at night. Santa Anita, meanwhile, only runs on Saturdays and Sundays. They could card 10 races each day just concentrating on 50k claimers and up. Santa Anita would probably make up in handle what they’d lose with 500 people knocking around on Thursday’s and Friday’s.

Sorrento winner Amalfi Sunrise is likely to be retired. After suffering a minor leg injury after the Sorrento she became sick with pneumonia and has since been battling it. She may be released from the hospital next week, though.

Get well soon, Amalfi Sunrise.

The Uncle Mo filly Donna Veloce just cruised to win her debut by 10 lengths at SA. Sold for $450K as a yearling, $800K as a 2yo. Out of a Montjeu mare,so she can probably run all day.

She displayed a wonderful turn of foot, even if the jock didn't have to ask for it :)

And I'm here giggling at her name... Gotta wonder if she earned the name, or if the name was given in hopes she'd live up to it!
Donna Veloce = Fast Woman (or Rapid/Speedy) ;)
A filly named Ruffian...

Eine Stute namens Danedream...

Une pouliche se nommant Trêve...

Kincsem nevű kanca...


And a Queen named Beholder
