Jeranimo Beats Mr. Commons in Oak Tree Mile

Jeranimo won the $150,000 Oak Tree Mile at Santa Anita, which could lead to a start in the BC Mile.


In Saturday's Oak Tree Mile, Jeranimo ran one mile on the turf in 1:32.61 and paid $11.20, $4.40 and $3.20 as the 9-5 second choice. It was Garcia's third winner on the 10-race card.


Mr. Commons, the 4-5 favorite, returned $2.60 and $2.40. John Johny Jack paid $3.60 to show.


Trainer John Shirreffs said Mr. Commons jumped forward in the gate and banged his head.


"He didn't break as sharp as we would have liked. He ended up spotting them a couple lengths," he said, adding that a decision on whether to run in the Breeders' Cup would be made later.


Jeranimo returned to the turf for the first time since finishing eighth in the Pacific Classic on Del Mar's artificial surface in August.


Mike Pender brushed off any decision on Jeranimo running in the Breeders' Cup.


"We'll let the horse tell us what to do," he said. "This horse is kind of tricky. Sometimes he'll lay an egg on you if you're not watching him close. Other times he'll give you a race like today."


In the $65,000 Swingtime Stakes, All Star Heart defeated Victoryasecret by one length for 79-year-old Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally. Ridden by Brice Blanc, All Star Heart ran one mile on the turf in 1:34.39 and paid $7 to win.
