Yeah, I'm disappointed. Hopefully, it's just a slight fever, or something.
Well I'm still looking forward to four other firsters at Gulfstream this weekend:
1. Vocalize - Out of Harmonize, in Race 7 today.
2. Ciango - Out of a mare First Samurai, in Race 4 tomorrow.
3. Sensual Chocolate - Out of a Lightning N Thunder mare, in Race 11 tomorrow.
4. Omixochitl(f) - Out of a Goodbye Kid, in Race 7 Sunday.
How did these do ?
Anything coming up this week ?

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 !
