Hollywood Park: Jeranimo dazzles in turf debut

Email

Jeranimo made his first 13 starts on a synthetic surface, but he may not be going back to the main track for awhile after the way he won his turf debut in Saturday's third race. He closed furiously, running the final 5/16ths of a mile in approximately 28 seconds, to beat the Grade 1 stakes winner Fluke in 1 1/16-mile money-allowance race. Jeranimo, trained by Mike Pender, is a son of Congaree. He won the Strub Stakes earlier this year.
