Fed Biz Possible for San Felipe, Rebel

Fed Biz wins at Santa Anita Park on 2-9-12.

Among the two races Bob Baffert had under consideration Friday morning for Triple Crown contender Fed Biz after his smashing 5 ¾-lerngth victory in Thursday’s second race were the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita on March 10 and the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park on March 17.

 

The San Felipe is a Grade II steppingstone to the Grade I, $750,000 Santa Anita Derby at 1 1/8 miles on April 7. It will be decided at 1 1/16 miles and offers $300,000 in purse money. The Rebel is a Grade II at 1 1/16 miles with a pot of $500,000.

 

“I wanted to get him to sit off the pace,” Baffert said of the bay colt by Giant’s Causeway owned by Kaleem Shah, Inc. “He’s just learning. He didn’t get to change leads until late in the lane, but I learned a lot from him in this race. You can put him anywhere you want.”

Baffert had no word on where San Antonio winner Game On Dude would run next, likely either the Santa Anita Handicap on March 3 or the Dubai World Cup on March 31. “We probably won’t make a decision until we see the weights for the Big ‘Cap,” Baffert said. Weights are due Feb. 25.

 

The Hall of Fame trainer added that Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint champion Secret Circle, who worked seven furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track Monday in 1:24.40, has received an invitation to race in Dubai on World Cup Day.

I think Baffert'll be unstoppable.
