What: Robert B. Lewis Stakes
Who:  Flashback (win)
Where: Santa Anita
When: Saturday, February 2

With the great Ray Lewis about to end his career in the Super Bowl on Sunday, now is the time to look at some sophomores with aspirations in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes. Online sports betting site players can zero in on the Grade 2 $200,000 mile and a sixteenth fixture and if good things come in small packages, this is a good thing.

Only 4 will face the starter. Little Jerry acted like a big man nearly blowing up the tote board in the debut with the furious late run. He has been off poorly now twice and that must be addressed. Like the spacing of the drills coming to this race and not sure there is enough speed in here to help promote the kick. Trainer Richard Baltas knows what to do with a good horse.

He trains Flashy Ways, who only cost $3,500 but won her debut, took a $100,000 stakes in her next, was steadied on BC Day and ran well in defeat in the 2012 closer losing a Grade 2 by just three quarters of a length. Back in the day Baltas also trained Freedom Crest to beat double BC Classic winner Tiznow in the Goodwood Stakes. This guy may need the race of his young life.

The children of the 1960s have a vehicle here in Flashback. The son of Tapit was bet like a good thing for his debut and he sure didn’t disappoint. He stalked like a pro and note the show horse was well clear of the 4th finisher. The runner was 3 wide in the debut, lugged in a bit, and pulled clear under a left-handed whip. This guy’s full sister Zazu won multiple Grade 1 races routing on way to a near $700,000 betting sites bankroll.

The show horse in his lone race took a MSW next out and the 8th finisher took a maiden $30,000 claimer. The way he came home in Inglewood, he ran the last furlong in :13.06, suggests he will adore this added distance.

Bob Baffert also has Den’s Lagacy and saddling half this field, he might be able to dictate how the race unfolds and would not be shocked if rider Garrett Gomez is aggressive from the sound of the bell here.

This well-bred charge has only run one poor race and that was when pushed into the Grade 1 right after the graduation party. This runner is handy, he can settle like he did in the Generous and punch it in when asked. He’s feeling pretty good if the bullet works of late are any indication and note the bullet on the 26th was tied with stablemate Manando, who was third in the Sham.

I’ll Have Another’s connections have another runner here in He’s Had Enough.

This youngster is back to the venue where he ran the race of his life in the BC Juvenile. Against Shanghai Bobby, this runner was shut off twice, and still ran huge. Bobby, of course, was upset last weekend in the Holy Bull. This runner is still learning the game. He worked last week in 1:10 4/5 under rider Mario Gutierrez but that doesn’t tell the story as he was persevered with to keep up with 4-year-old and Pennsylvania Derby winner Handsome Mike. His trainer about the drill, O’Neill: “He’s a horse that doesn’t apply himself. You have to stay after him to keep to his task…Mario said he could feel him coming off the bridle and stop trying.” O’Neill is 20% the last 5 years in a 364-starter sample going synthetic to dirt but is 1 for 28 with synthetic to dirt runners in Graded stakes the last 5 years. Four in that category did run 2nd.

Look for Den’s Lagacy to make the running, Flashback to track in second, but then take control at the top of the lane and draw away.

Good luck with your horse betting.
