If you see trainer Peter Eurton at Santa Anita, don’t bump into him because you might burn yourself.

He is that hot right now.

In 2008, trainer Peter Eurton ran 124 horses and won 19 races for a respectable winning percentage of 15.  But during the Santa Anita meeting, which began Dec. 26, Eurton’s horses have won six of their 13 races, or 46 percent of the time.

On Jan. 15, Eurton saddled 7-to-1 shot Dish the Dirt to a maiden win and Thursday #9 Bettyboomboom went wire-to-wire at 9-to-2. As Bettyboomboom was loading into the gate, her odds were 6-to-1, but they plummeted to 9-to-2 as the race was being run. The same thing happened to Dish the Dirt, which tells me that the stable bets at the last possible moment.

Although I acknowledged Bettyboomboom’s speed when evaluating this race, I instead went for first-time starters #6 Excessive Charm at 6-to-1 and 18-to-1 shot #3 Play Reveille.
