Damn I was seriously going to post that my pick would be the 'other' Baffert (as in Authentic) but thought a gut feeling was not a good enough reason! Well never mind, he was really impressive today but even more green. I'm actually impressed that even when he shied away from that rail, he was still getting away from the rest of the field!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Getaway day.....
Jocks Tyler Baze and Joe Talamo both say goodbye to SA today, heading for parts east of the Rocky Mountains.
Both ride in the finale, and you just know how hard they'll be trying.
Baze has the rail horse listed at 8/1 and certainly has a shot against a suspect bunch.
But Talamo is listed at 10/1 and steps in for regular rider TPierera off the layoff, he'll be flying in the stretch, ohh and it's for trainer Ron Ellis, his Father-In-Law, hmmmmm! $tranger things have happened!

Officials at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., have opted not to conduct live horse racing next Thursday, Feb. 6, as originally scheduled. It had previously been announced that racing would not be conducted as scheduled on Thursday, Feb. 13, and Thursday, Feb. 20 was not among the assigned dates for the meet. Thus racing will be conducted on a Friday through Sunday basis for the next three weeks.

Track officials are hoping the reduction in days will lead to larger field sizes.

Mystery weather day.
Track sealed overnight.
Closed for morning workouts.
No rain yet, maybe rain in the forecast, maybe showers, nobody knows.
As per the new norm, err on the side of extreme caution.
