We entered my little colt Bang in the Sunshine Million Sprint at Santa Anita this Saturday. This is quite a step up for him, but my partner and I feel he's earned his way into it. Last year he set a track record at Sunland Park for 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:14 1/5 (six furlongs in 1:08), and another track record for 1000 yards, so if he runs anywhere near those races, he might pick up a piece. The only other spots for him were a $40,000 stake at Turf Paradise and a $50,000 stake at Sunland, so the $300,000 for the Millions race looked very tempting in comparison.

We did get leading jockey Rene Douglas to ride, so that's a point in our favor. This is all probably only a pipe dream, but that's what racing is all about, anyway!

The Sunshine Million races will be carried live by NBC at 12:30 pm PST.

Tough spot ... Shake You Down is a real good horse when he's on his game. So is Revello.

Good luck.

Good luck Michael. You're right this is what it's all about. He has talent, give him a shot.

Good luck Michael.

Cheers
