Gold Cup at Santa Anita Video: Can anyone beat Game On Dude?

My video race of the week for Saturday, June 28 is the Grade 1 Gold Cup at Santa Anita. It is carded as the 8th race for 3-year-olds and up traveling a mile and a quarter on the main track (Post Time- 4:43pm PT).

Wily veteran Game On Dude will break from the rail as the 4-5 morning line favorite. The 7-year-old has captured half of his 32 lifetime starts but has dropped 4 of his last 5. He should face serious pace pressure from Fury Kapcori and might be vulnerable late if that scenario plays out. The latter is classy and likes Santa Anita but might not want to go ten furlongs.

Imperative upset Game On Dude in the Charles Town Classic. His positional speed should put him in a nice spot but he won’t be 26-1 this time.

Clubhouse Ride always seems to play second fiddle to The Dude. He defended his G2 Californian title May 31 and would appreciate some pace help.

Majestic Harbor exits a solid 3rd in the aforementioned Californian. He won the 12f Tokyo City before that so ten panels will not be an issue.

Salto Del Indio from Chile and Lideris from Peru round out the field.
