    LET’S GIVE ‘EM SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT Last time out, Atswhatimtalknbout (A.P. Indy) flewdown the stretch and just missed, finishing second by anose behind Buddy Gil (Eastern Echo) in the Mar. 16 GIISan Felipe S. The $900,000 FTFFEB juvenile will have

    an extra sixteenth of a mile towork with in today’s GI SantaAnita Derby, but he alsomeets a whole new cast ofcharacters. Trainer BobBaffert sends out a three-horse entry in the $750,000event, including the only run-ner in the field who has al-ready been tried at a mile and

    an eighth. Kafwain (Cherokee Run) showed he couldhandle the distance when he finished a solid second inlast year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. He finished sec-ond by a head in the GI Hollywood Futurity, only to bedisqualified and placed fourth for an incidentin the stretch. The dark bay kicked off his2003 campaign with a dominating 4 1/2-length victory in the Feb. 1 GII San VicenteS. Second in the Mar. 9 GII Louisiana Derbyin his latest, he lost that purse money andplacing after testing positive for trace levelsof clenbuterol. He is joined in the startinggate by stablemates Domestic Dispute (Un-bridled’s Song), winner of the Jan. 13 GIISanta Catalina S. and fifth in the San Felipe,and Panamanian stakes winner Indian Ex-press (Indian Charlie), who makes his two-turn bow after finishing fourth in the Mar.22 San Pedro S. “So far, everything looksgood,” Baffert said. “We’re just trying tofigure out what kind of trips they need, andwhether they can get the distance will becrucial. I think we’re all in the same boat--we’re going to find out what we’ve got.” Headded, “Indian Express has a lot of talent. Idon’t know how good he is or whether I’vehad enough time to get him ready, but phys-ically he looks fantastic. I’m hoping he mightjust shock and awe them.”

    Another Derby for Ocean Terrace? Undefeated Ocean Terrace (Saint Ballado), who ranhis record to three-for-three with a 1 1/2-length winover Ministers Wild Cat in the Mar. 8GIII El Camino Real Derby, looks to pickup yet another Derby this afternoon.The chestnut, who brought $700,000as a KEESEP yearling, had Mike Smithaboard last time out. But, with Smith atOaklawn to partner Horse of the YearAzeri in the GI Apple Blossom H., thecolt will have Kent Desormeaux back inthe saddle. “He knows this horse betterthan anybody other than myself,”trainer Bob Hess Jr. said. “We’re hon-ored to have him back on.” Desormeauxhad opted to ride Ministers Wild Cat inthe El Camino Real. That colt gets theservices of jockey Victor Espinoza.

    MAKING HERSELF HEARD Yell (A.P. Indy) became the fourth graded-stakeswinner out of Wild Applause (Northern Dancer) when

    she galloped to a six-lengthwin over Ivanavinalot (WestAcre) in the GII Davona DaleS. at Gulfstream Park. Shewill try to give mom a secondGrade I winner (following theexample of older brother East-ern Echo) in today’s GIAshland S. at Keeneland.Owned and bred by Adele

    Dilschneider and Claiborne Farm, the dark bay startedher career with a third in a Nov. 8 maiden event atAqueduct. She missed by a neck in her next outing, butwas awarded the win when Cherokee Lite was disquali-fied for interference in the stretch. Yell made it two in arow with an allowance score at Gulfstream Park Jan.16, then ran away with her stakes debut. She preppedfor her Grade I bow at Keeneland Mar. 31, going a halfmile in a bullet :48. But she faces a tough task in tryingto hand Lady Tak (Mutakddim) her very first defeat.The Florida-bred ran her record to a perfect five-for-fivein her latest, beating Atlantic Ocean by 3 1/2 lengths in the GII Fair Grounds OaksMar. 8. The diminutive miss was originallypurchased by Bob Cunningham’s C & WFarms, bringing $7,500 at the 2001Keeneland September Sale. Cunninghamsold her for $75,000 to owner WilliamHeiligbrodt at last year’s Keeneland AprilSale. What did Cunningham see in the littlechestnut as a yearling? “I buy all on looks,”he explained. “I don’t even look at the pedi-gree until I’ve seen the conformation. Lotsof times I’ll end up with horses that are alittle bit on the smaller side. She was a verynice-looking filly.” Trainer Steve Asmussenknew she was special before she ever ran.“I’ve never had anything that could worklike her,” Asmussen said.

    East Meets West... The East Coast and Midwest contenders take on oneof the best in the West in the Ashland. Elloluv (GildedTime), on the board in all six careerstarts, races outside the state of Cali-fornia for the first time. After takingthe GI Hollywood Starlet S. at twoand the GII Santa Ynez S. in her three-year-old bow, the bay ran into thenow-retired Composure in her nexttwo outings, finishing a neck behindthat one in the Feb. 9 GI Las VirgenesS. and 3/4 of a length back in secondin the Mar. 8 GI Santa Anita Oaks.And you can’t count out the consis-tent Ivanavinalot, who has six winsand two seconds from her nine starts.The dark bay bounced back from her defeat in theDavona Dale to take the Mar. 14 GII Bonnie Miss S. atGulfstream Park. Trainer Kathleen O’Connell told theDaily Racing Form that her charge is ready for a bigperformance. “It’s definitely her toughest venture, butshe’s coming into the race great and hopefully she’llhandle herself well,” O’Connell said.

Despite adelay in her schedule caused by the now-resolved law-suit involving her ownership group, the five-year-old isprimed for a big season. “She seems stronger thanever,” said Michael Paulson, lone trustee of the AllenPaulson Living Trust. “It’s going to be an incredible yearif she stays this way.” Sixth to the pick in the Distaff,Take Charge Lady makes her four-year-old debut today.The easy winner of the Great State Challenge DistaffDec. 7, the bay gets jockey Shane Sellers in the saddlefor the first time. Last year’s runner-up Affluent returnsfor another crack at Azeri, but was winless in threehead-to-head matchups a year ago. She comes off awin in the Jan. 25 GI Santa Monica H.

    Danuta, Inamorato out of Ky Classics Godolphin announced Friday that three-year-oldsDanuta (Sunday Silence) and Inamorato (Tale of theCat) will not be pointed for the GI Kentucky Oaks andGI Kentucky Derby, respectively. They are scheduled toship to the States today and will run later in the spring.Inamorato, an impressive winner of the Al BastikiyaMar. 8 in his seasonal bow, endured a rough trip whenthird in the G2 UAE Derby last Saturday. Danuta fol-lowed her victory in the Moonshell Mile with a sharpsuccess in the UAE Oaks Thursday evening. “We thinka lot of Inamorato and Danuta, but we just felt it wasgoing to be too difficult for them right now to go intothose kind of races,” Godolphin assistant trainer TomAlbertrani told Thoroughbred Times. “Right now, itlooks unlikely that we will have anything there [at Chur-chill Downs] this May.” Godolphin has had at least onestarter in the Kentucky Derby since 1999.

    Brancusi Breezes for Blue Grass Michael Tabor’s Brancusi (Deputy Commander) tunedup for the GI Toyota Blue Grass S. next Saturday atKeeneland with a six-furlong breeze in 1:14 over theLexington oval yesterday afternoon. Jockey Tony Farinawas aboard for the move. “He was very much in hand,”said Farina. “He seemed real comfortable over thetrack. This work proved he is 100 percent recoveredfrom his last race.” Trained by Patrick Biancone,Brancusi was a very close third to Buddy Gil andAtswhatimtalknbout in the GII San Felipe S. Mar. 16.

    Outta Here Headed to Churchill? Outta Here (Dehere) could make his next start in theGI Kentucky Derby. The colt finished a troubled fourthin the Mar. 29 G2 UAE Derby at Nad al Sheba. “He hadevery right to finish last with the trip he had,” trainerBill Currin said. “[Jockey Kent Desormeaux] said therewas a lot of interference and he was hit a few times. Iwas very disappointed not to win the race.” The colt isscheduled to return to Southern California Sunday. If herecovers quickly from his Middle Eastern adventure, hewill head to Churchill Downs to run for the roses.

    Tiger Held Back Hold That Tiger (Storm Cat) will miss the G3Castlemartin & La Louviere Studs Gladness S. at TheCurragh Sunday, instead heading straight to the G12000 Guineas at Newmarket May 3. Aidan O’Brien toldthe Racing Post that he was keen to avoid a hard racein the seven-furlong event in which Johannesburg wasbeaten 12 months ago. “We are not going to run HoldThat Tiger on Sunday and instead he will work afterracing,” he said of the G1 Grand Criterium winner. “Wewould like to have run him this weekend, but to carry aGroup 1 penalty against older horses is very difficultand can leave its mark. It might not be fair to ask HoldThat Tiger to do so.”

    U of K Prof Offers Caterpillar Update: Prof. Dan Potter of the University of Kentucky, anentomologist who has been working on ways to controlEastern Tent Caterpillars, Thursday issued an update toGrayson-Jockey Club Foundation for Kentucky farms.The caterpillars came under suspicion as one of thepossible causes of Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome.According to Potter, “The window for caterpillar man-agement has just opened, and now through the nextweek or so is the ideal time for control actions. Theoptions are: 1) treat infested trees with foliar spray...2)inject the trees with bidrin [Inject-a-cide B] within thenext week. We found that was quite effective so longas the larvae were less than half their full size. Theinjection must be done by the Mauget system by acertified applicator.” Potter recommended two foliarsprays--Talstar, which he said gave near 100 percentcontrol and provided a week’s residual from a singleapplication; and Dipel, which gave approximately 75percent control and was not effective for as long asTalstar.

Purses have increased by 4.3 percentfrom first-quarter 2002.

    LATEEN SAILS INTO THE PICTURE Lateen Sails (GB) (Elmaamul), winner of a Newmarketmaiden last Oct. 2, took Godolphin’s main trial forthree-year-old colts over a mile at Nad al Sheba yester-day to stake his claim for the G1 2000 Guineas atNewmarket May 3. Held up in the rear in the earlystages by jockey Frankie Dettori, the unbeaten coltquickened to the front inside the final eighth to beatGraikos (GB) (Rainbow Quest) by 1 3/4 lengths in atime of 1:38.17. Last year’s G2 Gimcrack S. winnerCountry Reel (Danzig) was a further 1 1/4 lengths backin third. “Lateen Sails really pleased us,” commentedGodolphin Racing Manager Simon Crisford. “He finishedvery strongly, showing a nice turn of foot. He is a pos-sible 2000 Guineas contender at this time and it lookslike he will stay further as well.
