Del Mar: Next time for Tweebster


The losses continue to mount for Tweebster, a $300,000 purchase at a 2-year-olds in-training sale in Florida in March 2009.

In Saturday's first race, Tweebster turned for home with the lead as the 8-5 second choice, but could not hold off a late threat from Spring Forth, the 6-5 favorite who was making his first start since April.

In seven starts, Tweebster has been second three times and third three times for trainer Bob Baffert. More than likely, he will be favored in his next start. 

Spring Forth, a colt by Unbridled's Song, won by a half-length in 1:38.22
