Banker Bob, claimed for $3,200 last year, scores by a length under Alfredo Triano Jr. in the Aspen for Colorado-breds.

Banker Bob, who was a $3,200 claim last July, became a stakes winner Saturday at Arapahoe Park in the $40,000 Aspen. He was a length winner over Fast But Furious.

The Aspen, at six furlongs, was restricted to 3-year-olds and up bred in Colorado.

Banker Bob ($9.40) tracked fractions of 21.08 seconds for the opening quarter-mile and 44.21 for the half-mile. He went on to cover the distance on a fast track in 1:09.81.

Alfredo Triana Jr. was aboard for trainer Juan Ortega.

Banker Bob races for his breeder, Mason A. King, who had claimed the horse back after losing him for $8,000 last May at Arapahoe. Banker Bob is a son of Mr. Gehrig. He has now won 9 of 33 starts for career earnings of $106,578.
