Multiple Grade 1 winner and 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic runner-up Game on Dude drew post position 9 Wednesday night and was installed the 5-2 morning line favorite to win the 22nd edition of the Grade 1, $1 million Pacific Classic this Sunday at Del Mar. The five-year-old gelded son of Awesome Again, owned by Diamond Pride, Lanni Famly Trust or Mercedes Stables, will once again have Chantal Sutherland in the tack as they take on nine rivals in the 1 1/4-mile test that is the seaside track's richest and most prestigious of its 75th anniversary year. Sutherland, who already has won five major stakes on the Kentucky-bred, will try for another and in the process attempt to become the first female rider to pull off the Southern California "triple" of the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap, the Grade 1 Hollywood Gold Cup and the Pacific Classic.
