Belated Bid Schools at Santa Anita 4/9/09.
Here's a very nice looking filly I watched schooling for trainer Bob Baffert in the Santa Anita paddock on Thursday morning. Belated Bid, a dark bay daughter of Forest Wildcat, is entered in the 6th race at Santa Anita on Sunday, a Maiden Special Weight event for 3-year-old fillies at 6-/12 furlongs on the all-weather track. Owned by movie theater magnate George Krikorian, Belated Bid will be ridden by Joel Rosario, and she certainly looks ready.
In her debut, a 6-furlong MSW on March 22, Belated Bid set the pace from the inside post before tiring in the stretch to finish 9th of 10. She had a very decent workout on Monday morning, going 4 furlongs in :49.20.
