Game On Dude followed up a controversial
victory in the Santa Anita Handicap (Grade I) earlier this year by pressing the
pace throughout and holding on by half a length as the even-money favorite to
win the $250,000 Goodwood at a mile and a quarter on Santa Anita's main track.
"He's got more balls than any guy
I've dated," said jockey Chantal Sutherland of the horse that has given
her the only two Grade I wins of her career and the reason why she's still
riding in Southern California.
Game On Dude has now won all three tries
over Santa Anita's main track and trainer Bob Baffert confirmed his
millionaire's next race would be the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic at
Churchill Downs on November 5.
Five-to-1 third choice Awesome Gem closed
to finish second to give him five runner-up finishes in 11 career starts at the
distance and the "other"
Baffert, Coil, held on for third as the 2-to-1 second choice.
