The Haiku Handicapper: CashCall Futurity

Another big race
Winter break leaves me with time
Cali, here I come 


#1 – Azul Leon
Early juv darling
Hasn’t shown he can stretch out
Crossroads race this soon?

#2 – J P Jammer
A local prospect
Good efforts, nothing stands out
Not too exciting 

#3 – Hype
Improving turf horse
Distance won’t be a problem
Buy into the hype 

#4 – Axel Foley
Euro stakes winner
Will race with load off his back
Too much left to prove 

#5 – Pioneerof The Nile
New Baffert trainee
Runs the distance in his sleep
Time to prove his class

 #6 – Chocolate Candy
Improved with distance 
Money jock, but a class jump
CashCall’s sleeper pick

#7 – I Want Revenge
Best name in the field
A likely front-end burnout
Would need big effort 

#8 – Ventana
Spanish for “window”
English for “distance issues”
Great works, not today 

#9 – Frumious
Source of early speed
Three straight wins, but in San Fran
Probably outclassed 

#10 – Bittel Road
Turf star tries fake dirt
Great closer, shaky sprinter
Which horse will we see?

#11- Mr. Rod
A former claimer
Early speed will seal his fate
Could last for super 

#12 – Mark S The Cooler
The field’s lone maiden
Really, does this ever work?
Don’t see a win here 


Who answers the call?
Five sends them up the river
Ten if rode well, three
