ARCADIA, Calif. &ndash; The consistent Amazombie has won 4 of 8 starts this year, a career-best season for the 4-year-old gelding. He has won everything but a stakes race, and that may be on his agenda in 2011 if he runs well in a $68,000 allowance race at Santa Anita on Thursday.\r\nTrained and co-owned by Bill Spawr, Amazombie was entered for the $75,000 On Trust Handicap for statebreds at Hollywood Park on Dec. 19, but the race was canceled when significant rainfall left the track uneven.\r\nThursday&rsquo;s allowance is a replacement race, of sorts. The purse is lower, and the distance is 6 1/2 furlongs instead of 7 1/2 furlongs, but four of the seven entrants for the On Trust are back in the allowance race &ndash; Amazombie, Cayambe, Earnednevergiven, and The Bat Signal.\r\nThey are joined by two stakes winner &ndash; Dancing in Silks, the upset winner of the 2009 Breeders&rsquo; Cup Sprint who is winless in four starts this year, and My Summer Slew, the winner of the Kerlan Handicap on turf in the summer.\r\nAmazombie, a 4-year-old gelding, has never faced a field of this caliber, but his recent form merits respect. He has won 4 of 6 starts since March, and has improved greatly since he was gelded last year, Spawr said.\r\n&ldquo;He&rsquo;s a better horse than he was before,&rdquo; Spawr said.\r\nThe unknown element for Amazombie is Santa Anita&rsquo;s new sand-and-clay track. Amazombie&rsquo;s 13 starts have been on synthetic tracks or turf courses. He had two workouts on the new track earlier this month, and has trained on it regularly, when weather permitted.\r\n&ldquo;We know he likes the turf,&rdquo; Spawr said. &ldquo;If he likes the dirt, it opens up a different era. One thing is for certain, he tries. You can put him anywhere in a race.&rdquo;\r\nAmazombie can race near the lead or from off the pace. Earnednevergiven, the winner of an optional claimer over 6 1/2 furlongs at Hollywood Park on Nov. 21 against The Bat Signal, is expected to set the pace.\r\nDancing in Silks is a closer, and assessing his form is more difficult. Trained by Carla Gaines, Dancing in Silks was third in the Grade 2 Palos Verdes Handicap here last January, but unplaced in three subsequent stakes. Thursday&rsquo;s race is his first start since a sixth in the Grade 1 Ancient Title Stakes at Hollywood Park in October.
