Bus Buzz: Fast and Moving Up the Ladder

Three year old gelding for Steve Knapp made his debut in the fifth on Saturday, a maiden special weight event at ¾ on the main for Cal breds. Off at 6/1 in a six horse field, he looked like Brickyard Ride the first quarter, zooming to the front from the four hole with quick early fractions of 21.47 and 43.97 for the half. He had four on the field by the 3/8 pole, five at the top of the lane, and cruised on home in hand to win by 8 at the wire. His dam was a multiple stakes winner and this one will have no issue with the first allowance condition as he is fast. Up the ladder.
