a lot to like about this 1 currently sitting on the board @ 39-1. sprinted well in GB. shortening up from a mile (love that angle down the hill). Got a little layoff and getting a class break. Don't be shocked. P3...7,8,9/3,4,6/2,3,5.
  • Mary Z. · Old Spud Spivens looks good today, but then he often does. Not even sure what distance this is. Was disappointed in Batti Man last race. · 23 minutes ago
Should sit the perfect trip in the 5th behind Masochistic, Batti Man & Reno Rebel. Sitting at a juicy 6-1 on the tote

Any definitive news on Cavalryman?
Cavalryman has broken down in the GIII Nad al Sheba Trophy. No update yet but hopefully he can be saved, he's been an incredible servant for Godolphin

POST TIME 4:57 PM EST – A handy overall card is being offered by Santa Anita today.  The 4th race features a scrappy field of 11 fillies and mares to navigate the downhill turf course.  Pace projects to be rather subdued compared to par but pace pressure will be quite significant.  #...Read More

Love the horse, on the other hand, Michael Arndt is a self centered snob who doesn't deserve the good fortune.

Didn't really care much for this race. We have those that consistently run at the level but seldom win like the 3 & 5. Then we have the 2 which I don't care for his dirt works. Sacred Ovation may be able to wire the field, and this might be the highest class he can really run competitively. Nextdoorneighbor just seems to like to get his picture taken lately, and he still may be able to do so again with the jump in class.
Winning Cause worked 5f today (2/28/15) in 1:01:32. It was the fourth fastest of 11 other works at that distance.
Constitution worked 5f today (2/28/15) in 1:02:23. It was eight fastest of 11 other works at that distance.
Bolo worked a handy 6 furlongs in 1:13.80 at Santa Anita February 27th. Looked a lot better in this one than the past two dirt works, plan is still the San Felipe if all goes well.
Dame Dorothy worked 5f today (2/28/15) in 1:00:62. It was the fastest of 11 works at that distance.
Mshawish worked 4f today (2/28/15) in 48:23. it was the third fastest of 11 works.
