Racing! Bob Baffert has another big day
Hello, my name is Eric Sondheimer, and I’m filling in for John Cherwa. If you’re a fan of Hall of Fame trainer
In the first race, Coliseum, sent off at odds of 1-2, made a smashing debut, winning the seven-furlong race for maidens under jockey Joe Talamo by 6 3/4 lengths in 1:23.13. It was a faster time than the winner of the Bob Hope Stakes later in the card at the same distance. You can watch the race here.
For weeks, Coliseum has been turning in scorching times in morning workouts. The son of Tapit lived up to his reputation. He broke outwards from the No. 2 hole, soon seized the lead and never looked. Talamo shook his reins in the stretch and had a tight hold at the finish.
“He’s got a bright future,” Baffert said. “He ran to his odds.”
Coliseum is owned and was bred by Godolphin, a stable that has won virtually every major race except the Kentucky Derby.
Later in the day, Baffert’s Mucho Gusto, another odds-on favorite, won the $100,000 Bob Hope Stakes under Talamo in 1:23.51. He became the first stakes winner for 2013 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner
“I’ve been very excited to ride this horse,” Talamo said. “After after this race, I’d say I’m really impressed with him.”
Baffert already has the No. 1 2-year-old in Game Winner, the Breeders’ Cup juvenile winner.
“I lost time when he got sick and this was a good race for him,” Baffert said. “He’s a pretty cool horse. There’s nothing flashy about him but he gets the job done.”
Talamo is also the big winner. He became a Baffert backup rider to Drayden Van Dyke several months ago and began working out some of Baffert’s best horses in the mornings. Now he must make sure Baffert keeps using him. Remember Justify’s first rider was Van Dyke until Baffert switched to Hall of Famer
Del Mar preview
It’s a nine-race card on Sunday with three turf races starting at 12:30 p.m. The big race is the $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes for Cal-breds going seven furlongs. The favorite, at 2-1, is Edwards Going Left from the Accelerate connections of trainer John Sadler and owners Kosta and Pete Hronis. Edwards Going Left has been running at a high level but hasn’t come up with a win lately. He was fourth in the Grade 1 Bing Crosby. The last time he ran at this level was the Cal Cup Sprint, which he won by six lengths. Tyler Baze is the jockey.
The second favorite is Touching Rainbows at 5-2. He’s been running lesser company but did get a third in the Bing Crosby. Phil D’Amato trains and Flavien Prat will ride.
Here are the field sizes, in order: 6, 8, 6, 12, 8 (4 also eligible), 8, 9 (1 ae), 9, 10.

Bob Ike’s SA play of the day
SIXTH RACE: No. 6 Allaboutaction (5-1)
Professional gelding from the Javier Sierra barn has been first or second in seven of his last eight starts (eight lifetime wins from 26 starts) and no reason he won't give another top effort here, He is tactical, has run well over the Del Mar strip and earns consistent numbers. We look for him to fire again despite coming back in 15 days.
Saturday’s result: Turnaround finished fourth in the third race, never getting into the competition.

Ed Burgart LA play of the day
First Race: #3 Millie Joel (3-1)
With suspect speed foes Baby Beauty and Lady Of Fire in the lineup, I look for Millie Joel to come rolling late to get the win. She rallied around horses midway on the far turn and barely missed second in last when facing five-length wire-to-wire winner who was taking a big class drop. She retains solid apprentice rider Kellie McDaid and has been most effective at the $2,500 claiming level.

VENDING MACHINE prompted the pace between foes then stalked a bit off the rail to the stretch and also weakened. FINALLYGOTABENTLEY pressed the pace between horses then stalked between foes, continued outside on the turn and three wide into the stretch and gave way. MANY TREATS five wide early, chased off the rail then a bit off the fence leaving the backstretch, angled to the inside on the turn and lacked a response in the stretch. AIR POCKET stalked five wide then four wide on the turn and into the stretch and gave way. LION COMMAND refused to break and stayed in the gate well after the field was away. The stewards conducted an inquiry into the start before ruling LION COMMAND was the cause of his own trouble.
