Schrodinger, Cool $500K 2-Year-Old, Headlines Best Pal

Kaleem Shah’s Schrodinger, a $500,000 purchase at the March sale in Ocala, Fla., was made the 2-1 favorite on oddsmaker Russ Hudak’s morning line in a field of seven for Saturday’s $200,000 Grade II Best Pal Stakes.

The six-furlong sprint is a stepping stone to the $300,000 Grade I Del Mar Futurity on September 2, the closing day of the meeting.

Schrodinger, a son of Justin Phillip trained by Simon Callaghan, won his racing debut at Los Alamitos on June 30 and has two bullet works here since then.

Schrodinger is one of five Best Pal entrants acquired via sales for prices ranging from $200,000 to $875,000. Mark Glatt-trained Collusion Illusion is in the middle of the group, having gone for $300,000 at the Ocala, Fla., sale in January.

Collusion Illusion, a son of Twirling Candy, debuted here on July 21 with a half-length victory over Defense Wins at five furlongs.

“Going in we thought he was a really nice horse and obviously he performed that day,” said Ryan Glatt, son and assistant to Mark. “The original plan was to go straight to the Futurity with him, but he’s trained so well and it’s not a big field so we’re going to give it a shot.”

The field from the rail: Wrecking Crew (Mike Smith, 4-1), Raging Whiskey (Abel Cedillo, 12-1), We’re Still Here (Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1), Schrodinger (Flavien Prat, 2-1), Collusion Illusion (Joe Talamo, 8-1), Thanks Mr. Eidson (Norberto Arroyo, Jr., 6-1) and Fore Left (Mario Gutierrez, 5-2).
