Game On Dude has game face on in San Antonio S. (G2)
Horse of the Year Finalist Game On Dude turned in a convincing victory in his 2012 debut, Sunday's $200,000 San Antonio S. (G2) at Santa Anita.
The Hidden Brook yearling graduate crossed the wire 5-1/4 lengths in front with a very strong final time of 1:46 4/5, one of the fastest in 78 runnings of the prestigious event. Game On Dude boosted his earnings past $2.2 million, winning his fourth Graded stakes for regular pilot Chantal Sutherland and trainer Bob Baffert.
Bred by Adena Springs, the winner was led into the winner's circle by former major league baseball manager Joe Torre, a partner in Diamond Pride, part of the group that owns the son of Awesome Again.
