Game On Dude Big 'Cap Decision Looms

Game on Dude with Mike Smith wins the Native Diver Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park in Inglewood , California on December 01, 2012.

Bob Baffert said Saturday morning a final decision on whether Game On Dude runs in the Santa Anita Handicap a week from today would not be made until the gelding works tomorrow and Baffert sees weight assignments due out today for the Big ’Cap, a race Game On Dude won in 2011.

“We’ll see how he works and what the weights are,” Baffert said. “Everything has to be really good. Otherwise, we’ll look at the Charles Town Classic ($1.5 million at 1 1/8 miles on April 20). It’s worth $1 million to the winner, and that’s like two Big ’Caps ($450,000 to the winner), and I know he likes that track.”

Game On Dude was second under 123 pounds to Duke of Mischief on a sloppy track in the Grade II Charles Town Classic on April 16, 2011.

In other Big ’Cap news, trainer Carla Gaines said Crystal Water winner John Scott would pass the race in favor of another race to be determined.
