Not really. A few of those grade ones had dreadful fields. That's not Sadler's fault or anything. It's just not some legendary achievement.

No Turf racing at Santa Anita Sunday

The forecast called for rain so Santa Anita was proactive and carded all dirt races tomorrow even though the condition book called for 4 grass races. So they do check the weather forecasts.

Absurd? That's funny. Last year UCF beat Auburn who beat Georgia and Alabama. Of course they should have been in an 8 team playoff. The same way Georgia should be in an 8 team playoff this year....

Roulette

The race 2 roulette pool at Santa Anita was $659 dollars. I'm not sure what the motivation was to create this bet in the first place , but it's not catching on.
