Santa Anita - Race 2

#5 Boat Trip (6/1 ml)

Michael Pender trainee ran pretty close against a strong field in his debut despite a horrible post-draw, then ran well again in his second start while splitting today's 3/1 co-second-choices Zackn'mat and Fed Biz. Seems to have more speed than most of these and should get a favorable trip up front, either taking the lead himself or sitting just off the flank of Where's Henry. Also note that Pender has excelled when going sprint-to-route, hitting at 24% for a huge flat-bet profit over the last couple of years. This horse has started at huge prices in both career starts thus far, thanks mainly to the low-profile connections, and should be a very fair price once again while looking like a very serious contender to these eyes. Expecting a good run.

HRT record:

84 for 311 (27%)

$697.40 mutuels ($8.30 avg)

I gave out Fed Biz in this race today and let's hope we run 1-2 for the exacta. Make sure you use the 1 for a big exotic payoff.
