    Solid Strike

    Smart Strike’s biomechanical profile reveals he was a natural two-turn individual with as much power as stride, the kind of horse that can get out there and stalk and then keep going until the rest are left behind.

  • Auction Trail of Weekend's Grade I Winners

    Both of the weekend's grade I winners at Santa Anita Park—Constellation and Mind Your Biscuits—passed through a Keeneland auction as yearlings and were offered through an Ocala Breeders' Sales Co. 2-year-olds in training sale.

    Baffert Still Mulling Options for Arrogate

    Where Arrogate ends up flaunting his talents next is still up for serious discussion after the son of Unbridled's Song ripped through a solo seven-furlong move in 1:24 4/5 at Santa Anita Park Dec. 21 with jockey Martin Garcia in the irons.
