Santa Anita Derby may have three from Baffert barn
By DRF Staff
ARCADIA, Calif. - The $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on April 6 may include three runners trained by Bob Baffert.
He is strongly considering a start for Super Ninety Nine, who won the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park, but was fifth as the 6-5 favorite there in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes on March 16. Other candidates from his stable are Den’s Legacy, who was third in the Rebel; and War Academy, who won an optional claimer on March 15.
“I’m not going to make that call until that week,” Baffert said of his stable selection. “I know Flashback is definite.”
Hear the Ghost, trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, won his first stakes in the San Felipe.
The Santa Anita Derby, run over 1 1/8 miles, will also include the January stakes winners Tiz a Minister and Goldencents, who were third and fourth in the San Felipe, and the maiden race winners Storm Fighter and Summer Exclusive.
I had Hear the Ghost last time out, but he still runs green switching leads late. I think Gomez is going to make all the difference in Flashback. Gomez is classic at taking a horse back and making a big late run ! Today, lets take a bit of a price with "shakin " Can anyone tell me how Brad Free can be a Racing Form handicapper(tongue in cheek) he never selects anyone over 4-5 ! Today he steps out of his comfort zone, Mr Bossy Pants will be 8-5 .........:>(
Don't leave Tiz A Minister out ..... Huge Move Last try... I think 99 is difficult to beat on his homegrounds
War Academy looks to step up big time. This horse looks legit.
Send 99 to The Blue Grass. He'll face Lukas' colt, Uncaptured after his Spiral prep, Java's War, My Name is Michael also using Spiral as prep...but I believe his synthetic form from Hollywood puts him right in the mix. GOOD LUCK w Flashback!
I think Flashback is set to run a HUGE race.
