And the California Turf Beat Goes On

Two more turf stakes were run this weekend at Santa Anita Park, and the results were anything but a surprise. The current queen and king of the California turf scene, Tuscan Evening and Bourban Bay continued their winning ways. Not quite considered among the top turf horses in America yet, both horses have made strong arguments to be considered as such soon. Tuscan Evening has won carrying her early speed from 6 ½ furlongs to a 1 ¼ miles in winning one race in each month of 2010. Meanwhile, Bourbon Bay has demonstrated an affinity for distance racing in also winning one race each month so far this year. While they have different ways of accomplishing their goals, both runners have proven to be superior than any competition currently seen on the lawns of Southern California.

Tuscan Evening is looking very good, though, I wonder how she will do when she comes east to a track that is not so fast. Either way, she looks to be queen of turf racing so far this year, and you can't really argue with a winning streak of four in a row. She's on a roll.
