Workout Reports

In order to be allowed to run live racing at Santa Anita the Los Angeles County Health Department is only allowing a few key "essential" workers on site.  Unfortunately, our analysts and clockers are not included within this group.  So while we will have all of our regular products available we will not be able to produce an updated workout report.  However, we will include the 90 day workout report in the complete Digest which will give you every workout we have up until 90 days ago.

Hardcopy Edition
(update 5/28/2020)

We will have a hardcopy edition of Santa Anita's Racing Digest available in Los Angles and San Diego and their surrounding areas at our regular sales locations for Friday, May 29, Saturday, May 30 and Sunday May 31.  We expect to go back to distributing to Northern California, Las Vegas, and the Reno/Tahoe areas over the next few weeks as the OTB's and Sports Books open up to the public.

In the meantime, you can purchase and download the exact same Today's Racing Digest as you get in the hard copy right here for just $8.00 The Triangle Turf can be found here

Kentucky Oaks 2020 Report (5-14-20)

Swiss Skydiver is suddenly the runaway Kentucky Oaks 2020 points leader after strong victories in the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) and Fantasy Stakes (G3). In other Oaks news, British Idiom joins Donna Veloce on the sidelines, and Gamine joins the conversation.

Kentucky Oaks Points Race Recaps

Fantasy Stakes (G3) Recap (5-1-20) - Winner: Swiss Skydiver ($34.20)

This was a match race throughout. Venetian Harbor opened up a clear early lead and Swiss Skydiver chased from 2nd for quite some time. Those two hooked up around the far turn and into the stretch, and Swiss Skydiver gradually edged clear to score by 2-1/2 lengths. Venetian Harbor was more than ten lengths clear of show finisher Shedaresthedevil, and Alta’s Award completed the superfecta from post 14. Fire Coral and Lazy Daisy were next, and Lake Avenue and Ring Leader finished in a dead-heat for 7th. Ice Princess, British Idiom, Harvey’s Lil Goil, Kansas Kis, New York Groove, and 204-1 outsider Lady Glamour trailed.

Kentucky Oaks 2020 News

Juvenile filly champ British Idiom is out for 60-days due to a bone chip in her right front ankle. That might help explain her 10th place finish in the Fantasy Stakes (G3) May 1. Her participation in the Kentucky Oaks on the first Saturday in September is very much in jeopardy now. That is the second big blow to this division recently. As I mentioned in my last Oaks report, Donna Veloce has been turned out for 60-days.

Gamine is the new kid on the block. Bob Baffert’s $1.8 million purchase ran her record to a perfect 2-for-2 with a game neck tally over Santa Ysabel (G3) runner-up Speech in a salty optional claiming route at Oaklawn Park May 2. The top two were well clear of the rest, and the final time for a mile and a sixteenth was a solid 1:41.91. For comparison purposes, that Fantasy Stakes (G3) was run in 1:42.00 a day earlier. The Gardenia Stakes for sophomore fillies was also run on May 1, and winner Piece of my Heart traveled 8.5 furlongs in 1:43.28.

The Hollywood Wildcat Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Friday, May 15 features Oaks hopeful Tonalist’s Shape. She captured her first five starts including the Forward Gal (G3) and Davona Dale (G2), and was a wide 7th as the beaten chalk in the GP Oaks (G2) last time.
