1. Vocalize - This son of Gr.1 winner Harmonize, finished 3rd. Looks like he needs more than 5.5f.

2. Ciango - Was never in the race. Probably will head to the turf.

3. Sensual Chocolate - Ran poorly as well.

4. Omixochitl(f) - Was wide throughout, and tired late. I think she showed some talent. Looking forward to a better trip next out.

This Saturday at Oaklawn, Stockpiler, out of a Bernardini mare, debuts on the dirt at a mile. Trained by Daniel Peitz. His 3rd dam is Azeri!

Dean's List came back with another win on the 8th. He was challenged, and responded with a hard fought victory, covering the 6f in 1:09 1/5.

Thanks for the visuals and updates !

5.5 races help figure who are good gate horses, and like you noted more distance.

The trips for me are the hardest to judge at a short distance race.

When you get gate 12 in a 5.5f race in your debut race, you have to be pretty special to win. Any out of the money finish, really tells you little.

Baffert doesn't get many MTRs. They probably don't cost enough. However, I am following a 300k yearling Starlight purchase named Faneuil Hall. He is out of a Forest Wildcat mare. I hope Barfert doesn't mess him out!

Has he ever had a MTR ?

The female families suggest better on the Turf !

He had a three year old last year named Showpower, a 500K yearling purchase that has never run. I remember many years ago, he had a filly that started out promisingly, but she died suddenly. Don't remember the details.

I saw a nice one at Gulfstream today from Chad Brown. Credit Event, by Not This Time, out of a Candy Ride mare, debuted with a three length win over the artificial surface, at a mile and 70 yards. He completed the race in 1:41 and change. I need to see if he can replicate that on the dirt.
