This 2yo gelded son of Candy Ride officially stamped himself as one of the top contenders in this year’s Kentucky Derby with a huge WOW win in the Cash Call just drawing away from a good field of 12. All he needs to do is stay healthy and show he can handle the dirt in the Santa Anita Derby.


Just love the work that trainer Mike Puype put into this 2yo colt for this his second start and first going long on the grass. He hopped at the start and was far back so my money appeared to be gone. The hot riding Joe Talamo did not panic and took him to the rail. He sat last in this field of 10 until the top of the lane when he unleashed a four wide eye popping move and just mowed them down to win going away, He looks to be a real up and comer going long on the grass. $$$$$


Was in from Belmont for trainer Steve Asmussen and this 6yo gelding did some of his best running going 5 furlongs on the grass. Now going 6 furlongs on the grass, he showed his likeness to the green with a solid win. He will love going down the hill at Santa Anita and we will be using him as a single. $$$$$


Ran a winning race but just could not hold off the 7/5 chalk in this 50k maiden claimer going 5½ furlongs. This filly was more than three lengths clear of the rest in here and showed she can handle the dirt in her previous start back in October at Santa Anita when running a solid third.


First time in for this $20k maiden tag. He was taking the blinkers off and made a huge five wide run on the backstretch coming home strong to pick up the place. Looks to have found his level and will be hard to beat next time out.


First time starter ran a good race just missing the place money, He will be set for the win here at Santa Anita for trainer David Hofmans next time out.



This first time starter trained by A.L. Diaz who is having a meet to remember winning with over .50% of his starters was listed at 15/1 on the morning line. The barn and bettors must know what’s going on as he was bet down to 7/2 and won like even money. Went wire to wire in winning by three lengths. We will keep an eye out for him and Diaz.


First time starter out of the high percentage John Martin barn ran a winning race finishing second but just could not get by the 6/5 Baze winner. He will get there next time out.


Well-bred 2yo filly was being asked a big question in this her first start and that was to go a mile. She answered it with a big wow win coming from last to first drawing away down the lane by four lengths. $$$$$
