Mrs Constable sketched the first floor plan then worked with an architect for months to turn it into their dream home. They made changes as they went along to improve the design, including a wood and glass staircase. “We had the staircase coming up the centre of the foyer but I sat down and designed (the existing) staircase myself,” Mrs Constable said. “We like it much, much better — it’s got more character to it.”But it’s the outdoor entertainment area with pool and barbecue overlooking the water they love most.“At Christmas time, we have had up to 24 people here,” Mr Constable said.

The fireplace, bar, home theatre and master bedroom ensuite with spa are among its best features.

BOB BAFFERT, GIMME DA LUTE, WINNER: “First time I ran him, I completely had forgotten that he was a Cal-bred . . . Somebody forgot to give me that memo, so here we are. We have different options with him. He’ll determine where we run next. He was working great. We’re looking for bigger and better things.” NOTES: The winning owners/breeders are Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman. MIKE PEGRAM, PART OWNER/BREEDER, GIMME DA LUTE, WINNER: “Winning inCalifornia is always great, especially having a Cal-bred here. We bred Casino Gold in Kentucky and brought her to California specifically to be foaled here so we could run this colt as a Cal-bred. It’s always good when plans work like you hope, and the way he won today, I can’t wait for him to run again. But you never want to get ahead of yourself in this sport.” -30- JOCKEY QUOTESMARTIN GARCIA, GIMME DA LUTE, WINNER: “It was easy today. He’s been learning. The last two times he ran he was a baby. He’s still a baby but he’s more mature now and I was just cruising with him. When I asked him to go he just took off.”TRAINER QUOTES
