I just watched Emmanuel work with Dean's List. He is an imposing figure, that works effortlessly. Really anxious to see him step up in class.

He worked well actually. It’s just that he had a physically imposing figure working next to him. He is a nice horse in his own right.

Brad Cox had a nice colt win impressively on a muddy track the other day. In Dreams, by Frosted, out of an MTR mare, blazed to an open length win at Oaklawn on 12/17.

I like Cooke Creek in the Jerome, 8/5 is generous vs. this weak field, though the slop may figure in....

I am really looking forward to see how Newgrange runs in the Sham....also interested in Mackinnon.  Should be a competitive race, 4 of the 5 can win it.

I like Ben Diesel in the Smarty Jones....though I don't see any horse from this field impacting the TC races....same with the Jerome.

But the Sham has had the KD winner the last two years, so I think we should watch that one closely.

Newgrange was able to win easily after allowed an easy pace....helped considerably by 2nd place Rockefeller, also a Baffert colt, by not pressing the winner.  Nonetheless, Newgrange was impressive and should be a player going forward, moreso than Rockefeller.

I'm still amazed that ownership sacrifices Derby points to stay with Baffert.....guess it will stop for the next points races at Santa Anita
