A couple of entrants in the 8th at Santa Anita, a 6 1/2-furlong AOC for F&M 4yo+up, have very interesting dams: Not Now Carolyn (Tapit x Maryfield) and Life's Blessings (Tapit x Indian Blessing). Tapit gets to date all the cool girls. :P :lol:

From the DRF:
...Zedan Racing Stables, which also races Shane Zain, the front-running winner of a one-mile race Sunday. He could run next in the Grade 3, $500,000 Southwest on Feb. 19 at Oaklawn.

“If he’s doing well, it would be a good test for him,” O’Neill said. “He’s bred to be a good horse.”

Shane Zain is by Medaglia d’Oro and out of the Grade 2-winning mare My Gi Gi.

Song of Mine vied for third down the backstretch, but then found nothing down the lane. Finished 6th, I think. :oops:
She's a pretty bay with some resemblance to her sis, so I hope she can improve off this 'meh' debut.

Although it is January of her 3 y/o year, most Ghostzappers get better with age. Hopefully she'll do better next time out.

"Baby Girl" will try and get off the snide today- and show her breeding.
If she cant do this in a MSW with a $18,500 purse- may be time to send her to the shed

I would have made that suggestion clear back in April when she ran at Keeneland.

Exclamation Point, a half to Classic Empire, won impressively yesterday at Oaklawn. I saw the race and that colt has so much talent that he was able to run greenly, switch to the wrong lead and still pull away. Can't wait to see the flashy chestnut's next race.

Ziconic (Tapit x Zenyatta) is trying once more to break his maiden in the upcoming 1st race at Santa Anita. The field appears to have a lot of expensive/well-bred horseflesh trying to do the same, with horses by Frankel, War Front, Fastnet Rock, Scat Daddy and Silent Name joining Zen's boy in the gate,
