Put Up or Shut Up for Hoffenheim

If Huffenheim, a $900,000 two-year-old in training purchase at the OBS March Sale earlier this year, is going to be a factor in trainer Bob Baffert's Derby division in 2016, he should be able to win today's Santa Anita fourth race. He's had two educational runs sprinting, and today the son of Midnight Lute stretches out for the first time to a distance he acts like he'll love. French Getaway has a similar pattern and is getting hit early on the tote; he's currently the second choice at 5/2. Trojan Nation is yet another third time starter - was a solid third in a main track miler at Del Mar in mid November and is another who has trained nicely since. Sticking with Hoffenheim, though I wouldn't take less than his current 2-1 odds as the field leaves the walking ring.
