Racing at Hollywood Park with Marc Doche: Bob Black Jack Takes...

All five of his wins have come sprinting, but instead of trying the co-featured $100,000 Vernon O. Underwood (Grade III) at six furlongs, Bob Black Jack stretches out to a mile and a sixteenth and tries turf for the first time as the 9-to-2 third choice in the $250,000 Citation Handicap (Grade II).
 
Making his second start of 2011 and just his third start in three years, the six-year-old California-bred son of Stormy Jack will lead them as far as he can with Joe Talamo aboard for the fist time. During his three-year-old campaign in 2008, Bob routed three times; holding on nicely for in the money finishes in the Santa Anita Derby (Grade I) and San Felipe Stakes (Grade II) before faltering in the Kentucky Derby (Grade I).
 
The most decorated turf performer in the field is 3-to-1 favorite Jeramimo, who returns after a seventh place effort in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (Grade I) when he was too close to the pace early. The five-year-old son of Congaree will be well off the early lead today with Garrett Gomez climbing back aboard as he looks to add a third Grade II victory to his resume after capturing the Oak Tree Mile and San Gabriel at Santa Anita over the past year.
