Hernandez Leads Week 2 Aces Showdown
A come-from-behind win puts Ace Hernandez up in Racing Aces Summer Showdown.
July 20, 2014
In Week 1 of the Racing Aces Summer Showdown, Denis Blake captured the title in front-running fashion. Last weekend's contest had an entirely different outcome as Racing Ace John Hernandez came from behind for the victory with the selection of Trendi ($91.20/$21.60) in the Rainbow Futurity (G1), the final race of the weekend's contest.
With the huge score in the Rainbow, Hernandez parlayed the $20 total investment ($2 to win/place on five races) into a net score of $119.20, leaving fellow Aces Jen Perkins, Jennifer Hancock, Martha Claussen and week one victor Denis Blake in the dust.
The Aces tabbed four of the five race winners, resulting in a $125.80 return on $8 of win tickets.
The competition resumes this weekend when the Aces handicap the following races:
• TQHA Sale Futurity (RG2)
• Adequan Les Bois Derby Challenge
• Gordon Mobley Futurity - Indiana-Grand
• Spencer Childers California Breeders' Champ (RG1)
• Zia Futurity (RG1)
