Fed Biz captures Grade II $200,000 San Diego Handicap

Fed Biz

The 5-year-old Fed Biz took his rivals wire-to-wire in the Grade II $200,000 San Diego Handicap on Saturday at Del Mar, scoring by 5 1/4 lengths.

With Martin Garcia in the saddle, Fed Biz completed the 1 1/16 miles on the Polytrack in a record time of 1:41, breaking Zenyatta’s 6-year-old mark.

The 25-1 long shot Footbridge came in second, with You Know I Know a length behind in third. East Coast invader and race favorite Frac Daddy was fourth.

The winner is owned by Kaleem Shah and partners and trained by Bob Baffert, who was noncommittal as to his horse’s next start as of Sunday.

In other action during the weekend, Go West Marie was victorious in the $200,000 Fleet Treat Stakes, Rock Me Baby won the $150,500 California Dreamin’ Handicap, and Big Macher took the Grade I, $300,000 Bing Crosby Stakes. Also, trainer Art Sherman of Rancho Bernardo (of California Chrome fame) was presented with the Laffit Pincay Jr. Award.

Races were taken off the turf on Sunday as a precautionary measure due to four breakdowns that had occurred on the course since Opening Day on July 17. The course is being aerated and watered, and the rail repositioned, in an effort to improve the safety of horses and riders, according to a statement released by the track. — Photo and report by Kelley Carlson
