I'll take the nice 6-1 winner. Missed the Trifecta by a bob.
Disappointed in her workout at Santa Anita Thursday morning, Richard Mandella has scrubbed consideration of running Beholder in the Grade I Apple Blossom at Oaklawn Park next Friday and likely will look at the Grade I Vanity Stakes at Santa Anita on May 9. “I was kind of half-thinking of going to Oaklawn,” Mandella said after Beholder worked seven furlongs under Gary Stevens
in 1:26.80, “but now I’m going to back down a little bit and point to
the Vanity.” A two-time Eclipse Award winner, Beholder has not raced
since winning the Grade I Zenyatta Stakes last Sept. 27. She worked in company with Gentle Humor, who was given 1:14.80 for six furlongs.
Equibase Company announced today that, effective immediately, it will
include in its data feeds, result charts and Equibase past performance
products information on claims that were subsequently voided. The voided
claim information is also
being made available to tracks for inclusion in race programs
Top choice Ticaboo misfires but no worries. I'll take that nice She Hums-Really a Princess $17.60 exacta x 6.
Nice call on Sheer Drama, Josh. We teamed up to sweep the two GP graded stakes today!
Thanks, Mike and Mary. Don't know what happened to El Commodore, and Taste Like Candy basically eased across the line about 18 lengths back in the 5th race.
Agent Tony Matos hopes Corey Nakatani can resume riding in about a month after the 44-year-old Hall of Fame nominee went down when his mount, Bilger’s Sapphire, clipped heels and fell in Sunday’s
fifth race at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf. “It’s not as bad as it
appeared,” Matos said. “He had no surgery. His (left) collar bone is
broken but it’s not displaced and it takes three weeks to heal. He’ll
have X-rays taken, and then if everything looks all right, he can start
getting on horses.”
Trainer Eddie Plesa Jr. reported that Live Oak Plantation’s Sapling and Texas Glitter winner Souper Colossal, scratched from the Swale Stakes (G2) after coming down with a fever, will be given a freshening at Live Oak Plantation in Ocala. “It came at a very bad time. The timing was horrible,” Plesa said. “He’s clinically over being sick,
meaning his blood is normal and he has no temperature. But he’s not himself. He’s just like you or me if you got sick with the flu for a while. Even though all the symptoms are gone, you’re going to be poking around for another week or so. That’s the case with him. Instead of fooling around with him, I’m going to send him to the farm at Live Oak and we’ll just give him a couple weeks up there and then we’ll
bring him on back and get him started again, but as far as any Derby Trail, that’s all out the window right now.”
Nice $8.80 winner + exacta. Very good profit for short field.
