Game On Dude Assigned 123 for Big Cap

Game On Dude and Chantal Sutherland win the Goodwood Stakes(GI)at Santa Anita in Arcadia, CA. October 01, 2011

Game On Dude was assigned top weight of 123 pounds for Saturday’s Santa Anita Handicap presented by San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino, and as of Sunday morning, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert was undecided on running.

 

“Here or Dubai,” Baffert said succinctly, alluding to running in either the Big ‘Cap or the $10 million Dubai World Cup on March 31.

 

If Baffert were to opt for Dubai, Game On Dude, who is 4-4 over Santa Anita’s main track, would run on an artificial Tapeta surface.

 

Game On Dude would spot Setsuko seven pounds in the Big ‘Cap Saturday. They finished a nose apart in last year’s controversial running, in which Game On Dude carried 115 pounds to Setsuko’s 114.

 

Game On Dude carried 123 pounds to a 5 ¼-length romp in the San Antonio Stakes on Feb. 5, the gelding’s first start since finishing second at equal weights of 126 pounds in the Breeders’ Cup Classic last Nov. 5.

 

Baffert has won the last 12 races in which he has entered horses, from Feb. 11 through yesterday, Feb. 25. He had horses entered at Santa Anita in three races on Sunday.

 

Strub Stakes winner Ultimate Eagle was next in the weights at 120 pounds. A total of 18 horses were weighted, with Fiddlers Afleet drawing low weight of 110 pounds.
