DREAM SHAKE (c, 3, Twirling Candy–Even Song, by Street Cry Ire), completely ignored at 20-1 while facing an extremely tough-looking group of Santa Anita sophomores led by Bob Baffert hype horse Bezos (Empire Maker), whipped around the turn and ran up the score to snag ‘TDN Rising Star’ honors. The dark bay, who was a $32,000 KEESEP yearling turned $75,000 OBSAPR buy off a :10.1 breeze, sported an unassuming worktab on paper capped by a 1:01 flat (11/64) spin a week earlier (XBTV video) for a typically patient barn. Away well from his outside draw, Dream Shake was outsprinted by almost all of them early as Baffert’s other runner Tivoli Twirl (Twirling Candy) showed the way with Bezos not far behind. He began to inch closer while four deep around the turn, and had caught up to the leaders as a :46.19 half was posted. The early pacesetters came up empty in the lane, but Dream Shake continued to kick on powerfully, scampering away some five lengths to the good over second timer Harbored Memories (Harbor the Gold). The winning time was 1:17.34. Dream Shake is a grandson of GSW Brownie Points (Forest Wildcat), who also produced MGSW near millionaire Synchrony (Tapit) and GSW Chocolate Kisses (Candy Ride Arg).
