Fed Biz Catches Goldencents in Pat O'Brien

Kaleem Shah’s Fed Biz, with Martin Garcia up, unleashed a powerful rally in the final furlong to overhaul odds-on favored Goldencents Sunday and win the Grade II $250,000 Pat O’Brien Stakes on the under card of the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic.

Fed Biz, a four-year-old son of Giant’s Causeway, was outrun in the early stages of the seven-furlong sprint but closed with a rush in the late stages to charge past 4-5 Goldencents, winning by a length. Fed Biz’s time of 1:21.12 eclipsed Lewis Michael’s record for the distance set in the 2008 O’Brien.

Amazingly, Fed Biz provided trainer Bob Baffert with his fifth triumph in a row in the stakes and seventh over-all.

Third in the field of a dozen sprinters was Gonna Fly Now, three-quarters of a length behind Goldencents and a length in front of fourth-place Wine Police.

Fed Biz, winning his fifth race in 14 starts, earned $150,000 to push his bankroll to $545,496. Sent postward at 7-1, he returned $17.60, $6 and $4.40 to his backers in the large Pacific Classic Day crowd. Goldencents, who was piloted by Patrick Valenzuela, paid $3 and $2.60, while Gonna Fly Now returned $4.80 to show.

The Pat O’Brien Stakes is part of the Breeders’ Cup’s “Win and You’re In” series wherein the winner is eligible to an expense free, guaranteed berth in the Breeders’ Cup Nov. 1-2, in this case the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.
