GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

Race 2 -- #3 Babu - Won the head bob under hard-trying jockey Leon, who is struggling to make ends meet at the gate. The all powerful stewards launched an inquiry as Babu brushed with The Supply Program in the stretch. Program was ridden by Baze who has 10 zillion winners in Northern California and like an 8-foot center up against a 5-footer. They took this guy down and Mr. Baze chalked up another win and a sad one at that. I would like to see Russell Baze ride an entire meet at Santa Anita, Gulfstream, Belmont or Saratoga and see how good he really is!

Race 4 -- #5 Katie G - Was in from Santa Anita and looked perfectly spotted, but got pinched back at the start and lost her chance. She did finish third, eight lengths clear of the rest. Claimed by top trainer Miyadi. Look for move up and the score. $$$$$
