I thought it was a strange spot after the six furlong work on Wednesday.

He was very impressive at Del Mar and much the best. Chad Brown always has nice turf horses but I agree this one looks special.

Also nice to see Point of Entry get a nice juvenile in his first crop, especially since he himself didn't make any noise until he was an older horse.

Los Al: Vision leaves [sic] up to expectation
The first-time starter Vision ($5.40) closed impressively in the final furlong to win his debut in a maiden race at 5 1-2 furlongs in Thursday's sixth race.

Ridden by Mike Smith, Vision was fourth turning into the stretch and rallied toward the inside late to win by 1 1-4 lengths over 6-1 Shanghai Billy. Vision ran 5 1-2 furlongs in 1:04.79.

Trained by Bob Baffert for a partnership that includes China Horse Club International, SF Racing and WinStar Farm, Vision was purchased for $500,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale in Florida in March.

Yeah, he seemed to be spinning his wheels on the far turn but that long Los Al stretch gave him a chance to get unwound and when Mike pointed him to the rail he really took off.

After her troubled 6th place finish in the BCJF Wonder Gadot (Medaglia d'Oro x Loving Vindication) rebounds in the G2 Demoiselle with a 3 3/4- length victory. Happy for her as she was on my radar going into the BC and was a little sad when she got that awful trip.
With this win she earns 10 points towards the Kentucky Oaks.

Pletcher looks to have a hot prospect in Noble Indy
http://www.drf.com/news/pletcher-looks- ... nable=true
Noble Indy, a WinStar Farm homebred, captured his debut by 8 3/4 lengths Sunday, earning a 77 Beyer Speed Figure in the process. Noble Indy, a son of Take Charge Indy out of the multiple stakes-winning mare Noble Maz, completed seven furlongs in a lively 1:22.15 despite having acted up badly at the starting gate just prior to the race.

In the G1 Cash Call Futurity at Los Al, IMO there are three good two-year-olds who are going to come out of the five-horse field. The winner by DQ was McKinzie (Street Sense), 2nd by DQ Instilled Regard (Arch) and DQ'd to 3rd Solomini (Curlin), who crossed the wire first but who did a bit of leaning in down the stretch.
The three of them were separated by mere noses at the wire, and all looked like real racehorses.

Solomini clearly had the momentum but Instilled Regard is certainly a different horse around two turns. McKinzie looked still a little green, swishing his tail in the stretc when Instilled Regard seemed to get a little too close. Agree that these all move forward nicely and have the pedigrees to do so.

No suspense in the Starlet as Dream Tree gives Baffert the double.

Baffert was upset after the DQ because McKinzie had already been unsaddled and sent off to the barn!
