Torre Watches Game On Dude From Road

Previously committed to manage Team USA in the World Baseball Classic competition that began yesterday, Joe Torre, part owner of Game On Dude, who rolled to a record 7 3/4-length victory in Saturday’s Santa Anita Handicap, had to enjoy the race by watching a replay.

“Joe didn’t get to see it live,” trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday morning. “He saw it later on. Matter of fact, when (part owner) Bernie (Schiappa) called him, the first thing Joe said was, ‘How far did he win by?’

“Joe was really excited. He wished he could have been here. When I talked to him, he had just seen (the replay of) the race. He was amazed at what a horse Game On Dude is.”

Mike Smith took a moment Sunday morning to reflect on his front-running romp aboard Game On Dude in the Big ’Cap. The margin of victory was the largest in the classic race’s 76-year history, topping Bobby Brocato’s six-length win in 1956.

“His last two performances were incredible,” Smith said of the 6-year-old gelding. “For a horse at that age to stay as happy and sound as he is, they get really good, and that’s what he is right now.”
