Sham and Jerome race previews

Santa Anita, The Sham, Grade Three, One Mile, Dirt, Three-Year-Olds

The Doug O’Neill-trained Goldencents (4/5 on the morning line) is certain to be heavily favored in the Sham. He’s won a Grade 3, he’s finished second in a Grade 1; in fact he’s never really run a bad race. His Performance Figures are the best in the field and are on the up, albeit modestly. In his most recent race, the Delta Downs Jackpot, he fought off an early challenger and set a fast pace, yet was still able to hold off strong late challenges from both MyLute and Bern Identity. He has been training very fast over the Santa Anita surface. His trainer won the Kentucky Derby last year. The list of positives is long and the toteboard odds will be short.

Can anybody beat Goldencents?

The two ridglings, Dry Summer and Dirty Swagg, are more accomplished than Greeley Awesome, while Dry Summer’s trainer, Jeff Mullins, has been known to conjure big efforts on occasion, but today’s assignment seems a little much.  Read More
