ROOM FOR ME is the latest in a long line of horses that immediately improved after being moved to the David Jacobson barn. The 5-year-old mare was claimed for $12,500 by Southern California trainer Richard Baltas following a 10-length romp in a one-mile event at Santa Anita on February 12. Room for Me then shipped to Jacobson's Aqueduct base of operations and absolutely demolished seven others in the $50,000 Videogenic Stakes going six furlongs over the inner track last Saturday.

INDYCOTT really caught the eye last Saturday in an 'n2x' optional claimer at Fair Grounds. Making his first start since being claimed for $20,000 by owner Maggi Moss and trainer Tom Amoss, the 5-year-old gelding popped a career-best 99 Beyer Speed Figure.

YOCKEY'S WARRIOR made a huge debut last Saturday on the Risen Star undercard at the Fair Grounds. Trained by Al Stall, Yockey's Warrior put up a 97 Beyer in capturing a maiden special weight at six furlongs. That number was faster than the Beyers earned last weekend by such 3-year-olds as KHOZAN, INTERNATIONAL STAR, FAR RIGHT and UPSTART.
