Santa Anita: Game On Dude tunes up for $1.5 million Charles Town Classic
By Jay Privman
ARCADIA, Calif. – In his first work since his breathtaking victory in the Santa Anita Handicap earlier this month, Game On Dude cruised through a half-mile in 49.20 seconds on Sunday morning at Santa Anita.
Martin Garcia was aboard for the work, and he was standing tall in the saddle as Game On Dude effortlessly cruised through the lane.
“I needed to work him. He was getting pretty anxious,” said his trainer, Bob Baffert.
Game On Dude is being pointed to the Grade 2, $1.5 million Charles Town Classic on April 20, Baffert said.
“It’s $1 million to the winner,” Baffert said.
Game On Dude finished second in the 1 1/8-mile race in 2011.
Game On Dude won the Big Cap for the second time, having also captured it in 2011. His regular rider, Mike Smith, was en route from Arkansas on Sunday morning, having ridden Oxbow in the Rebel on Saturday.
It will be GAME ON DUDE and MIKE SMITH when the camera flashes at the wire. This race might be as easy as his last.
No local horse has a chance unless Cherokee's boy, Confucius Say,Donalds Pride or Researcher get a couple works in soon ...... Lucy and Russel beter stay in the barn
Somebody mentioned Lucy's Bob Boy the local horse and wow he is a monster. He just ran a 5 furlong bullet in 101 flat thats around 2 turns there and in his last race he broke a track record that stood since 1976 oh and he loves the track. Game on Dude will be 3-5 and a total bet against in there.
Beats going to Dubai and getting your rear end kicked - not happy memories for Baffert either
Take the money and run
The Dude Abides !
Game On Dude. Can't bet on him, and can't bet against him.
Caixa Electronica got a very good tightener in his last start. He likes Charlestown, and he's a money horse!!!
christ. lucy's bobs boy may win this race
$1 million to the winner hey!! Mike Smith will be sitting in first-class on the flight back from good ole Charlestown!!!
