Arcadia, CA (April 9, 2022) – Burnin Turf, the 6-year-old son of Acclamation, remained undefeated in 2022 with his latest victory coming in the 11th race on the Santa Anita Derby card, a six and one-half furlong allowance over the hillside turf course with a purse of $87,960.
Burnin Turf started the season with a victory over one mile on tha main track at the Arcadia oval. He followed up last out with a victory down the hill and he repeated that today in tougher company. He was away well and found a comfortable spot three lengths off the pace. On the far outside as the field crossed over the main track, he began to narrow that margin. He was in full flight in the final furlong, taking the lead clearing off to win by one length.
Burnin Turf has taken his lifetime backroll to $256,146. He races for the partnership of Next Wave Racing LLC and The Ellwood Johnston Trust and he is trained by Dan Blacker. He is a third generation homebred for Old English Rancho and he was produced by the Vronsky mare, Hot Outta the Oven.
