Cashing Out

Jerry Hollendorfer is not a nationally known trainer by most online sports betting site players but the day he had Saturday is one for the ages.

It’s hard to imagine that a trainer that has won so many races would be underrated, but that is just what has happened with this guy.

Maybe one of the reasons is because he plays it close to the vest and doesn’t toot his own horn but before we get into his marvelous Saturday, digest these numbers.

King Jerry, as he is known in some circles, has saddled 27,917 runners through Saturday. He greeted 6,544 of them back in the winner’s circle for a cool number of 23%.

His runners have been in-the-money 55% of the time and the runners he has saddled have earned nearly $145 million in purse earnings.

Take a minute to take that in.

On to Saturday and the Hall of Fame trainer saddled the one/two/three finishers in the $150,000 Native Diver Stakes. And that was just an appetizer.

Shared Belief made his first start going a route of ground Saturday in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity and he found himself sitting a dream trip. The runner was third a length off the lead early, opened up 2 and a half-lengths at the top of the lane, and then just kept on extending to win by 5 and a half-lengths with a potent 106 Beyer Speed Figure.

The runner has now won his three races by over 20 lengths combined.

Hollendorfer was reserved, as is his style, after the win but his longtime assistant Dan Ward was full of praise, Ward: “I think he deserves the Eclipse (as champion 2-year-old male), He was never asked and I think this race was easier on him than the other two. His time was fast and he beat a really good field. He’ll ship to Santa Anita next week and then we’ll see how he trains on dirt. The logical races to run in are the San Felipe Stakes, Santa Anita Derby and then if everything goes well, on to Kentucky.”

Shared Belief’s rider, Corey Nakatani, was impressive, Corey: “Wow! My horse has a pretty high cruising speed and when (Candy Boy) made that early move, I couldn’t go at that time. I’m just very thankful to Jerry Hollendorfer and his team for finding this horse and buying him. He did all the work and I was just a quiet passenger on him. Wow!”

Shared Belief, partly owned by sports commentator Jim Rome, could be any kind. His sire Candy Ride was unbeaten, could run all day and won at the classic distance of a mile and quarter when he cashed in his final race in the Pacific Classic with a 123 Beyer.

The thing Shared Belief has to do is to prove he can handle dirt but that should be no problem. Candy Ride won on conventional dirt, won both of his grass races, and in 2003 the Pacific Classic was raced on pure dirt.
