Worth a Punt was happy to pause for a photo today in the Santa Anita paddock, showing off his lovely head -- and a sporty new clip job! He was schooling during the races in preparation for a start in Thursday's 4th race, a starter allowance at 1-1/16 miles on the all-weather track.
A 3-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Mutakddin, Worth a Punt was an impressive winner of his last race, a maiden claiming event at 1-1/16 miles over Santa Anita's all-weather track on Jan. 2. Worth a Punt is trained by Howard Zucker for owner Rachel Pagones and will be ridden by jockey Alex Solis.
