Game On Dude Ran Like Champion in Gold Cup

Game On Dude, who successfully defended his title in yesterday’s Grade I, $500,000 Hollywood Gold Cup, came out of the race in great shape, according to Mike Marlow, assistant trainer to Hall of Famer Bob Baffert.

“He came back well,” said Marlow.  “He ran like the champion he is.  He’s just so professional.  He never gets excited.”

Mike Smith echoed Marlow’s sentiments.

“He was unusually quiet in the post parade and he had me a little worried,” said Smith.  “But when he went into the gate, he was all business.”

Game On Dude’s ultimate goal is the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Classic Nov. 2 at Santa Anita.

Trainer John Sadler reported that Kettle Corn, who gave Game On Dude a brief scare at the top of the stretch before finishing second, returned in excellent order.

“He’s in good shape today.” said Sadler.  “He’ll probably run twice at Del Mar; the San Diego (July 27) and (TVG) Pacific Classic (Aug. 25).”

Sadler said Kettle Corn’s big effort came be attributed in three equal parts to a great ride, getting 11 pounds (127-116) from the winner, and the addition of blinkers.

Additionally, trainer Mike Puype said Schiaparelli was fine Sunday morning following her victory in Saturday’s Grade II, $150,000 Royal Heroine Mile.  Customer Base, winner of Friday’s $72,350 Lucie Manet Stakes, also pulled up well, according to trainer Tom Proctor.
