Santa Anita: Fed Biz pointing to San Felipe

Fed Biz is being pointed to the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita.

Fed Biz, winner of a maiden race and an optional claimer at this meeting, will make his stakes debut in the $300,000 San Felipe Stakes over 1 1/16 miles on March 10, trainer Bob Baffert said Wednesday.

Owned by Kaleem Shah, Fed Biz won an optional claimer over a mile by 5 3/4 lengths on Feb. 9. On Wednesday, the colt by Giant’s Causeway worked six furlongs in 1:16.

“He was just cruising around,” Bafffert said. “He switched leads and did everything right.”

In his Feb. 9 race, Fed Biz did not switch leads until deep stretch.

On Wednesday, Baffert also worked Liaison, timing the colt in a slow 1:08 for five furlongs. Officially, Liaison was timed in 1:43. Liaison won the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park in December, but clipped heels and unseated jockey Rafael Bejarano in the stretch of the Grade 2 Robert Lewis Stakes on Feb. 4.

“I wanted him to go slow,” Baffert said of Wednesday’s workout. “I didn’t want to do too much with him.”

A race has not been chosen for Liaison, Baffert said.
