If anything was learned at Santa Anita this weekend, it's that the $15,000 stud fee for Eclipse Award winner Midnight Lute needs to be raised.
There were three horses from the first crop of foals by Midnight Lute that won Saturday and Sunday, all trained by Bob Baffert, who was the trainer when Midnight Lute won the Breeders' Cup Sprint in 2007 and 2008.
Shakin It Up, under jockey David Flores, was the biggest winner of the weekend, taking Sunday's Grade II, $150,000 San Vicente Stakes by one length over Treasury Bill in the seven-furlong race for 3-year-olds.
Earlier on the same card, the Baffert-trained 3-year-old Governor Charlie won a one-mile maiden race. And on Saturday, the 3-year-old filly Midnight Lucky sped to victory in a 6 1/2-furlong maiden race. All have Midnight Lute as their father.
