Who: Thoroughbreds – Liaison (key horse)
What: Horse Racing Betting Tips – The $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes
Where: Santa Anita
When: Saturday, February 4th

Those West Coast sophomores with designs on the Triple Crown can take a step in that sport betting direction Saturday at Santa Anita in the Grade 2 $200,000 guaranteed Robert B. Lewis Stakes, a major prep for the Santa Anita Derby on April 17.

Originally known as the Santa Catalina Stakes, the late great Bill Shoemaker owned this race back in the day with 7 victories and stars like Sham, Derby winner Ferdinand and Juvenile Eclipse champ Declan’s Moon have graced the charmed circle after the Lewis.

Last year, Anthony’s Cross rebounded after a wide trip in the Sham to win the Lewis in game style by a nose with a 91 Beyer.

Saturday a competitive group of 8 will face the starter in the mile and a sixteenth Lewis and from the rail out Isn’t He Clever kicks it off.

This Sunland Park invader is 3 for 4 career but the lone loss came at the demanding distance of 7 furlongs when he lost ground in the lane as he is trying to route for the first time against the toughest test yet. He does have a right to get the trip as kin to Sharp Writer, who took 2 routes on his way to an over $200,000 career and the value should be there.

Bob Baffert’s Liaison will be a handful. He lost his debut when breaking poorly, but is 3 for 3 since and has trained the proverbial hole in the wind for this. Fresh from a victory in the Grade 1 Cash Call, there is plenty of speed in here to promote his late betting websites punch.

Groovin’ Solo just graduated but he has a right to show more speed with the blinks added. His breeder, owner and trainer, Myung Cho, has had a penchant over the years of having his horses run big in some very tough spot. And the blood is there as this guy is kin to Grade 1 winner Street Hero.

I’ll Have Another has been sidelined since catching a sloppy strip in the Hopeful and although he has never been sent long, both of his siblings won routing. The concern is the absence of Joel Rosario, who was up for the first 2 starts but rides Empire Way in this race.

Sky Kingdom could be the speed component of the Baffert runners but he was not disgraced when 4th in the Cash Call and has trained fast for this race.

Rousing Sermon, who was beaten in a photo by Liaison in a wide Cash Call Futurity, kept his legs moving last Sunday with a solid :47.40 spin in anticipation of this race.
The Cal-bred is proven at Anita and he just shows up and runs hard every single time.

Empire Way was hooked wide in the Cash Call but he came from 9th at the top of the lane to finish fifth beaten less than 3 lengths. His future is bright as he is kin to champion Royal Delta, who won the Grade 1 BC Ladies Classic last year.

Chips All In will break from the outside so his hand may be forced to show speed from the get go. He’s only lost once, and that was in a comeback situation and you could easily see him getting a solid trip.

In a very tough fray, this is the way it figures to set up. Isn’t He Clever will gun and try to steal it but he will have company with Groovin’ Solo, I’ll Have Another and maybe Chips All In.

These three will vie down the backstretch while Rafael Bejarano saves ground with Liaison. They will take closer order at the top of the lane but that is when Liaison will make his move and quicken to clear.

He will be followed home by Sky Kingdom and Rousing Sermon. Players could do worse than keying Liaison on top in the trifecta and then use the other pair mentioned along with I’ll Have Another, Empire Way and Chips All In.

Good luck on the sports betting sites.
