Shared Belief Romps to Victory in Big ‘Cap

Shared Belief cruised to a 4-1/4 length victory in the $1 Million Santa Anita Handicap, bringing his career record to 10-1. Owned by Jungle Racing LLC or Hollendorfer, Todaro et al, Shared Belief is trained by Jerry Hollendorfer. He was ridden to victory by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who earned a record third consecutive Big ‘Cap victory.

“It’s like he shows up every single time — he always runs big, is always tough and just has a lot of grit, a lot of heart,” co-owner Rome said. “He never disappoints.”

The victory, worth $600,000, increased Shared Belief’s career earnings to $2,932,200.
