A Visit to Bill Anton's Barn at Golden Gate Fields

Anton with Two-Year-Old Colt "Danger"

While visiting Golden Gate Fields in Albany, California, this week, I made a special point of getting out to the morning workouts, where I met trainer Bill Anton, who gave me a very nice tour of his barn. Anton has a couple of nice two-year-olds who could prove to be "dangerous."

DANGER, a bay colt by Storm Creek, gave me the "evil eye" when we approached, looking like he was ready to take a bite out of something (or someone)! Anton, however, was more than a match for the likes of him -- getting the colt to pose for a photo. DANGER has already shown his ability on the track, finishing a close second to Clare's Top Choice in the $50,000 Cavonnier Juvenile Stakes at Santa Rosa in August, for owner Hank Nothhaft.

Anton and "Dangerous Too"

Also by Storm Creek, and owned by Nothhaft, is DANGEROUS TOO, who was much better behaved and posed willingly for a photo.
