No. 9 NUMBER FIVE: Just loved this maiden out of the barn of Richard Mandella in this 1-1/16 race that was scheduled to be run on the grass but it rained a little. In So Cal if it just looks like rain they take the races off the grass. I guess they never heard of a soft or yielding turf course or are the saving the turf course for next year. Just kidding. Number Five really never got into the race until it was too late but will be ready to roll next time out at Santa Anita going long on the grass. $$$$$
