The evolution of the main dining room, wine flights, menu updates…oh the list can go on and on.Uncork & Unwind has been blessed to meet some of the most amazing people. There is a saying above our French doors – Enter as guests, leave as friends. This has become a motto for Uncork &Unwind. Our Uncork & Unwind family grows everyday – from new wine makers, wineries, vendors and most importantly our guests. Uncork & Unwind wouldn’t be the place it is today without the support of all of our friends and family – new and old alike.Moving forward two years – Saturday July 7, 2012 – Our second anniversary party.

Each was clocked in 1:00.60.“Perfect,” is how trainer Cliff Sise Jr. termed the move by the speedy Danzing Candy. “Even though it looks like a small field for the Santa Anita Derby, post positions will be important, especially with the speed in there now.“We don’t have to be in front, but I’ll pretty much leave it up to Mike. I’m sure if the other speed (Iron Rob, coming off a front-running win in the six furlong San Pedro Stakes March 20) knows that if I draw inside, I’m going to go, and he’ll sit off of us.“If he draws inside of me, it will be vice-versa.”Santa Anita clockers gave Danzing Candy fractional times of 24, 36.40 and 48.40, with a gallop out time of 1:14 for six furlongs.Exaggerator, second to unbeaten champion Nyquist in the Feb. 15 San Vicente and third behind Danzing Candy in the March 12 San Felipe, worked five furlongs for Keith Desormeaux with brother Kent aboard in 1:02.80.Exaggerator’s fractions were 25 flat and 50.80.“It was a little slower than he’s used to going,” Keith said, “but Kent said he was well in hand and galloped out strong.”Also working for the Santa Anita Derby were Iron Rob, six furlongs in 1:14.40 for George Papaprodromou; California-bred Smokey Image, six furlongs in 1:13.40 for Carla Gaines; and Uncle Lino, five furlongs in 1:02.40 for Gary Sherlock.Smokey Image had splits of 13.40, 36.60 and 48.80. Uncle Lino went a half in 50.40. BALDWIN AVE.

Stellar Wind went the first quarter-mile in 25.20. Also working for Sadler was Santa Anita Handicap runner-up Hard Aces, four furlongs in 48.20, while Palos Verdes and San Carlos winner Kobe’s Back went four furlongs in 49.20 for Peter Eurton . . . Nyquist arch-rival Swipe worked six furlongs for Keith Desormeaux in 1:13 flat.

Arcadia Stakes winner Bolo worked four furlongs for Carla Gaines in 48 flat, while La Canada winner Taris went the same distance in 49 flat for Simon Callaghan . . .

With two wins Friday, Phil D’Amato has opened a 32-30 lead over O’Neill in the battle for Winter Meet training honors. The jockeys’ race is a fait accompli, with perennial leader Rafael Bejarano holding a commanding 68-47 bulge over injured and idle Santiago Gonzalez, but third-place Flavien Prat could take advantage of Gonzalez’s down time and move into second. He sits third with 43 victories. . . Effective today, agent Mark North has taken the book of Stewart Elliott, while apprentice Brayan Pena and agent Vic Lipton have parted company . . .
