Bullion worked another 6 furlongs in 1:14.6 seconds the other morning at Los Alamitos. One more breeze and look for a race is what Jerry said after the breeze. Jerry also added “he looks like he has some real talent.”

Zestful ran another evenly one paced race today in the first race at Santa Anita. Jockey Drayden Van Dyke’s comments were that the horse needs to go longer and just doesn’t have the turn of foot necessary for the downhill turf course. We’ll see how he comes out of the race and look at the next condition book when it comes out.
Madarnas raced evenly throughout today’s sixth race at Santa Anita in finishing 5th. Madarnas under his own power walked into the equine van after the race as jockey Edwin Maldonado felt something was off. Initial reports are that Madarnas suffered an injury to a sesamoid. It is a non-life threatening injury and he’ll undergo further evaluation and tests in the coming days. Madarnas is comfortable back at the barn and eating an early dinner. We’ll provide additional updates in the upcoming days on his status and explanations of the injury.
Takeo Squared has been entered in Tuesday’s 10th race for three year olds going 6.5 furlongs on the downhill turf course. Rafael Bejarano is back to ride from post 8 with a 4:30 post time.
Cairo Kiss worked four furlongs in 49.4 seconds Thursday morning at Santa Anita. She’s doing everything nice and easy. She’ll go 5 furlongs next week on the training track and then switch over to the main track.
Amers this morning at Golden Gate. She looks great after her thrilling win Wednesday at Santa Anita.
Here are some photos of Night of Idiots this morning at Golden Gate.
First off no claims were in on Major Implications, so we’ll get another crack at this. Jockey Abel Cedillo’s feedback after a disappointing 7th today was that he’ll likely benefit from gelding and adding blinkers next out. We’ll see how he cools out of the race and go from there.
The race we were pointing Takeo Squared to did not get used on Monday. They brought it back as an extra race for Tuesday. Entries tomorrow, so we’ll see if it gets used tomorrow.
