Liaison Joins Jim Dandy Field

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has confirmed his Cash Call Futurity winner Liaison as a starter for Saturday’s Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy for 3-year-olds.

 

The Indian Charlie colt, owned by Arnold Zetcher, has run twice since a sixth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby, finishing second, beaten a half-length, in the Grade 3 Affirmed at Betfair Hollywood Park on June 3 and third, three-quarters of a length short, in the Grade 2 Swaps on July 4.

 

In the Swaps, Liaison earned a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 102.

 

“Liaison worked really well today, and we thought he earned his trip today to the Jim Dandy,” Baffert said from Del Mar after Liaison worked 1:12 4/5 for six furlongs with likely Haskell Invitational favorite Paynter, second in the Belmont Stakes. “Martin Garcia worked him and said he really felt great.”

 

Garcia will ride on Saturday.

 

Baffert said Liaison will fly out Tuesday along with Gun Boat, a recent allowance winner at Hollywood Park who will run in Sunday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Amsterdam, a 6 ½-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds.
