AWESOME GEM ENTERED IN SAN FERNANDO (G2)
Awesome Gem is all set to run in the $200,000 San Fernando Breeders' Cup Stakes(G2) on January 13th at Santa Anita. He drew the #3 post out of 12 with Tyler Baze aboard for the trip. Surprisingly the race drew a full field of twelve. That cannot be completely unexpected when you've got that much money at stake. There are some big hitters in the race including the likes of Arson Squad, Brother Derek and Magic Lute. Awesome Gem has trained absolutely superbly, and we feel that we have a horse on the improve. We have been targeting this race and feel we have a very big chance of winning.
Trainer Craig Dollase said "Awesome Gem has gotten better with each start. We are just now starting to see what we think he might be capable of. We're hopeful that this race is the start of a very big year."
