Barry Abrams Schools Hot n' Dusty for Solana Beach Hcp.

Early Saturday morning at Del Mar, I watched trainer Barry Abrams schooling one of his nice fillies, Hot n' Dusty, in the paddock. A 4-year-old daughter of Unusual Heat owned by M. Auerbach LLC and Little Red Feather Racing, Hot n' Dusty runs in the $100,000 Solana Beach Handicap on Sunday at a mile on the turf.

Hot n' Dusty has 2 wins, 5 seconds, 2 thirds and a fourth-place finish in her last 10 starts. She won her last race, a $100,000 optional claimer, at a mile on the turf. Not only is she a very consistent runner, she is also one of the sweetest fillies I have met. She seemed to genuinely enjoy all of the attention -- quietly striking poses for the camera -- and even allowed me to pet her. It's also very easy to see that she loves Abrams -- and vice versa!

FYI- Dusty has 4 wins, 7 seconds, 3 thirds in 20 starts while earning almost $300,000 without any black type. She's amazingly consistent and even a bigger sweetheart than she is a runner.

Great video!

Thanks, Harris! She certainly is one of my new favorites. I bet she'll make a great mama -- and hopefully will teach her foals to love people.

She does look like a very sweet horse
