Arcadia, CA (May 22, 2020) – Take the One O One, the multiple stakes winning son of Acclamation, took the field on a merry gallop to win the 8th race on today’s card at Santa Anita, a one mile turf allowance with a purse of $51,000.
Hustled out of the gate by jockey Jose Valdivia, Jr., Take the One O One established a clear lead through the opening quarter. Halfway through, he felt some pressure from two different challengers, but he shook them off and was leading by three at the top of the stretch. He was kept to his business the rest of the way home, but not seriously threatened, in his length and one-half victory.
The 5-year-old Brian Koriner trainee has won or placed in nine of his thirteen starts and has earned $382,306 for owner Jay Em Ess Stable. Bred by Thomas Backman in California, he was produced by the multiple stakes producing Jump Start mare, North Freeway.
