Today's race is the 7th at Santa Anita. Hcp-G1 $300K 1 M (T) 4up
# 2 Silent Name (8/1) has a history from hell in his past performances. For starters, he has a trainer who has saddled only 2 winners from 35 starts at the current meet. Not an encouraging sign. The nightmare really begins when you look at the trouble this horse has encountered with his former jockey.
Here are the last six race descriptions (when that jockey had the mount):
Pulled; lost whip 1/8
Bobbled start; 2 wide; weakened
10 wide stretch; no bid
Lost whip chute
3 wide into stretch; lost 2nd
6 wide into lane; rallied
Today's jockey switch to Nakatani is an encouraging sign. This horse is speedy and it should be a good value.
