Graded Stakes - 5/28 - Santa Anita -Shoemaker Mile - Happy Memorial Day - God Bless our soldiers, past and present.
Race 7 Shoemaker Mile
1. Heart to Heart
#6 HEART TO HEART is all that and more, as the 35:15-5-3 lifetime mark shows us that this one knows where the line is each and every time he sets hoof on the track. Seven year old "horse" ( heyyyyy, Heart to Heart still has all his important parts ! ) is still getting the job done, and not that you need it here, but he's backed by a monster DRF Formulator stat, as Lynch is a whopping 19:11-3-2 with graded turf stayers who scored 1-2 months back & are 6-1 or under today ( $4.78 ROI ). Grab him by the tail to get the glory. #1 OM is another one still hangin' on to the macadamia's at the age of six, and has done his best work beneath these mountains. Hendricks is a tidy 3 fer 8 with runners of this ilk off breaks of less than 12 weeks below 30-1. Leaving beneth because of the 0-6 ledger when breaking from the innermost two slots. #9 BLACKJACKCAT finished third in the only true second off the L/O attempt & has won half of his eight starts at the distance.
