Pender Thinking Big 'Cap for Jeranimo

Trainer Mike Pender has one more goal on his wish list for Jeranimo: a graded stakes victory on dirt, and that desire could be fulfilled in the Grade I, $750,000 Santa Anita Handicap on March 2.

“We like to support the Santa Anita program and keep Jeranimo here at all costs,” Pender said Saturday morning. “The only thing not on Jeranimo’s resume is a start on dirt, so he has yet to win there. He has won on synthetic and turf; he could wind up in the Big ‘Cap.

“If he wins a race of that magnitude, what else would he have to prove?”

A full horse at age seven, Jeranimo was a smashing winner of the Grade II San Gabriel Stakes on grass Jan. 13. The son of Congaree owned by B. J. Wright has nine wins from 32 career starts, 18 on turf and 14 on synthetics. He has won at distances from 6 ½ furlongs to a mile and an eighth and earned $1,197,400.
