Charlie and Chris is Back in at Santa Anita

The lovely Unusual Heat colt that I watched schooling in the paddock last month at Santa Anita is entered back in today's second race, a California-bred maiden special weight at 6-1/2 furlongs on the main track. Charlie and Chris was scratched from a maiden special weight race on Jan. 9 after he was spooked and got loose during the post parade. With an early first post time for Superbowl Sunday, the second race is scheduled for approximately 11:30 a.m.

At least he got to run this time. Very green in the lane, he should never have been on the lead the whole way. Next time!

Double Arrrgh!!
My pick 3 payoff would have been much sweeter had C&C hung on. Great run. Considering he ran such a tepid pace tells me he's kind enough to rate. After this experience, he'll improve leaps and bounds. IMO, Zucker will need to teach him to pass horses on this main track. Another UNUSUAL HEAT with real running ability.
