AX MAN (c, 3, Misremembered–Shameful {SW & MGSP, $241,345}, by Flying Chevron) has been working consistently at Santa Anita since the beginning of December and came in off a sharp five-furlong work in :59 1/5 (4/74). The 7-5 favorite broke sharply and sat on the outside of Lombo (Graydar) through a quick opening quarter of :21.73. Under confident handling from Drayden Van Dyke, Ax Man took the lead entering the far turn and never looked back, opening up with every stride without being asked for his best to score by 9 1/2 lengths, stopping for clock at 1:09.43 for the six furlongs. More Honor (More Than Ready) rallied for the runner-up spot. Ax Man is a half to 2007 Champion Two-Year-Old and 2008 Champion Female Sprinter Indian Blessing (Indian Charlie) and GSW Roman Threat (Roman Ruler). This is the eighth winner out of Shameful, who is a half to GSP Little Matth Man (Matty G). She also has a juvenile colt by Midnight Lute and a yearling colt by Bayern. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $32,400. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
