Jeranimo, hero of the 2012 GI Shoemaker Mile S., kicked off his 7-year-old campaign with a win in Santa Anita’s GII San Gabriel S. Jan. 13. Seventh behind Horse of the Year Wise Dan (Wiseman’s Ferry) over the yielding going in the GI Woodford Reserve Turf Classic S. at Churchill Downs May 4, the bay was last seen finishing a well-beaten fourth while defending his Shoemaker title June 29. Slightly favored to get back on track here, he caboosed the field of nine through a half mile in :46.23. Jeranimo still had plenty to do as they rounded the far turn, found a seam in deep stretch, and came charging on the outside to win in style. “It seems almost surreal to say the horse redeemed himself when he had nothing to prove,” trainer Mike Pender said. “They’re going to say this was a weak rendition of the Eddie Read, but all he has done is run second to Accclamation [in 2011] and take down the winning honors today. I think when Jeranimo is in a real horse race, where there’s speed, tactical speed and deep closers like himself, that’s when he’s able to shine. And today, he had perfect conditions.”
