Bettys Bambino, a Horse for Course if ever there was one, goes for his fifth win from six starts on Santa Anita's unique downhill turf course at about 6½ furlongs when he runs in Saturday’s $100,000 Sensational Star Stakes for older horses bred in California or sired by a California-bred stallion.
"He's definitely a horse for this course," said Peter Eurton, who trains the son of Unusual Heat for a partnership. "I would love to see him run in one-turn turf races from seven (furlongs) to a mile, down the line. That would be fun. He's an Unusual Heat. He's supposed to go a lot further than 6½."
