The Kentucky Derby 2012
trail heats up in Southern California on Saturday with the G2 Robert
Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita Park and morning line favorite Liaison seeks
his fourth straight win for Bob Baffert.
#2 Liaison (9-5) landed the show in his flat mile bow
and Del Mar and it has been all smiles ever since. He graduated in a
seven panel event at Santa Anita Park, and proceeded to win back-t0-back
stakes races in the Real Quiet and G1 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood
Park. The hard knocking Baffert trainee owns fine tactical speed and is
training well for this. This is a starting point to his sophomore
campaign and he is already sitting pretty on the graded earnings list so
he does not have to win this at low odds.
