Gotta love Santa Anita's stakes schedule.

They are so backwards there that they run the prep races (i.e. Santa Maria) after the marquee event (i.e., Santa Margarita).

Of course, they are all really...

Wasn't the Jaipur or the Poker 7 furlongs at one point?

I think Elusive Quality might have set a course record in one of those.

I'm not arguing that. I'm commenting on the lack of a suitable race for a simple maiden winner at his home base.

He had to show up for this race whether his connections wanted to or not. And since...

He worked a slow 5 furlongs last weekend, which is probably a smart move (going slow rather than bullet working) as he can have no further slip ups to make the race.

I presume he will work again...

Was really hoping for a match up with Pappacap after that one wins the Pat Day Mile.
