Edgard Zayas wasn't trying to set any track records aboard MR. BAKER in last Friday's third race at Calder, but the gray 5-year-old had other ideas. Mr. Baker (lifetime past performances available at the bottom of this blog post) posted a pair of six-furlong workouts in preparation for his first start for trainer Ralph Ziadie after being claimed for $16,000 at Gulfstream, and turned from Joe Racehorse into a 106-Beyer performer.

You know that it's just about time to bid adieu to Old Man Winter when the good folks at Keeneland open the doors for another spring meeting. After this meet, it will be spring cleaning at Keeneland as the polytrack racing experiment will come to an end, and good old-fashioned Kentucky blue-dirt will return to the main track.
