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 Bob Baffert, you should be excited. He showed off two more exceptional 2-year-olds on Saturday at Del Mar, with Coliseum and Mucho Gusto adding to Baffert’s growing list of potential horses to be on the Kentucky Derby trail in 2019.

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 Mucho Macho Man. Mucho Gusto had to hold off Savagery under strong urging from Talamo.

“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 Mike Smith. Of course, there’s so many top 2-year-olds in the Baffert barn that he’s going to need multiple riders in 2019 when they become 3-year-olds.

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.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT sped to the early lead, angled in and set the pace inside, met a pair of bids on the backstretch to inch away again and drew off in the stretch under urging. WEATHER MARKET between rivals early, stalked off the rail then bid between foes on the backstretch, tracked the winner just off the rail into and on the second turn and into the stretch and bested the others. PAPRIKA stalked three deep then bid three wide on the backstretch, tracked the winner outside the runner-up into and on the second turn and three wide into the stretch and held third. MISS VOLUPTUOUS broke slowly, pulled between horses then chased three deep, continued outside a rival leaving the second turn and into the stretch and lacked a rally. RADISH chased inside then outside a rival, steadied off heels a half mile out, came out into the stretch and did not rally. INTO RISSA saved ground chasing the pace, was in a bit tight a half mile out, came out into the stretch, was in a bit tight again between foes in midstretch and lacked the necessary response. JUST KATHY saved ground stalking the pace, continued inside in the stretch and weakened. SPECTACULAR STORM pulled between horses chasing the pace, was a bit off the rail leaving the backstretch then three deep into the second turn, dropped back on that turn and had little left for the stretch.

MUCHO GUSTO a bit crowded at the start, had speed inside to set a pressured pace, inched away approaching the turn, fought back along the rail on the turn and in the stretch, inched away again under left handed urging past midstretch and gamely prevailed. SAVAGERY broke in a bit, pressed the pace outside the winner then stalked just off the rail on the backstretch, re-bid between foes on the turn and in the stretch, could not quite match the winner in the final sixteenth but edged a foe for the place. SPARKY VILLE stalked outside then off the rail, bid three deep on the turn and in the stretch and was edged for second. EXTRA HOPE saved ground stalking the pace, came out into the stretch and put in a late bid three deep on the line. OWNING a step slow to begin, chased outside a rival, dropped back just off the fence on the turn, came out into the stretch and gave way.
