I thought that Baffert 2 year old Much More Halo (More Than Ready) was impressive yesterday in a Del Mar MSW race, even though he finished second. Much More Halo led for much of the race but was challenged for the lead by other horses. American Pharoah colt Royal Act went by him from the outside at the end of the race and won by half a length, but I was still impressed by Much More Halo.

I think that Bob Baffert does not consider Much More Halo one of his top 2 year old colts because he doesn't use one of his first call riders on him, but maybe he will be more impressed by him now. Of course, MMH is a turf runner, and Baffert has been more of a dirt trainer. MMH's pedigree does indicate grass.

Anyway, I will be keeping an eye on him and look for him to win some graded stakes races (on grass). Could be interesting.

Wouldn't be the first time his second or third off the bench saved the day for him... like Real Quiet.

It took Real Quiet seven races to win his first race.

Much More Halo finished 2nd yesterday for the 4th time in 7 races. He has finished 2nd in some pretty fast races (1:02 and change in one 5.5F race), so I know he is a fast horse. He finished out of the money in his first race and also in his only race on dirt (he is obviously a turf horse). In his other out of the money race, he finished 4th, but only a length behind the winner.

His time will come, I hope.

Or wheel an exacta with Much More Halo on the bottom.

There was a horse named Jacques Who that finished second 24 times. He was a good horse but kept finishing second. He ended up winning 6 races. Maybe Much More Halo is like that. I still think he is capable of winning graded stakes races. Hope he stays healthy.

BTW, in his second race, Made You Look finished second to a horse named Royal Act. Since then, Royal Act has finished second in a graded stakes race.

Workout today at Del Mar (:50 flat for 4F). Just an average work, but Much More Halo should be racing sometime soon, probably at Del Mar.

BTW, his owner paid 390K for him at a two years old in training sale. His owner must have seen something in him. Hope he gets his money's worth.

Much More Halo is entered in a MSW race at Del Mar on 8/15/20. It doesn't look like he is in with very much, but a first time starter named Cem Sultan could be dangerous. Cem Sultan had a pretty good work on Saturday (8/8), so he might be tough. His trainer is Peter Miller and his rider is U. Rispoli, who has been hot. Cem Sultan is by Lemon Drop Kid and his BM sire is Bernardini.

Baffert and team are taking this one seriously and Mike Smith is in the irons for Much More Halo. He should get this one and will probably be a heavy favorite.

I can't believe it. Second place again for Much More Halo. What I can't believe is that the horse that beat him was Tilted Towers, a horse that showed hardly anything before (5th and 6th in two races). The horses that I thought might beat him were Cem Sultan and Graziano, who were both first time starters with impressive works.

Anyway, I hope Much More Halo enters a race that is at least 5 and a half furlongs. He always seems to be gaining in these 5F races, but too late.

That makes 5 seconds in 8 races for Much More Halo. He finished 5th in his very first race and was far back in his only race on dirt, which proved that he is a turf horse. In another race he finished 4th, but only 1 length behind the winner.

Much More Halo finally won one Sunday (10/18) at Santa Anita. That was his 9th race with a win and 5 seconds now. His worst finishes were in his first race and 3rd race, which was on dirt (MMH is a grass horse). He also finished 4th in a race in which he only finished one length behind. So, he is very consistent.

Much More Halo is a beautiful horse and I can see why his owner paid 390K for him. Can't wait to see what he races in next.
