The favorite #4 White Lace Jimmy was hammered to the unbettable price of 3/2, but he almost got there with a late burst that brought him to within a neck of the winning horse.

But first-time starter #8 Tavern, at 24-to-1, held off White Lace Jimmy to give female jockey Jordan Springer, 31,  her first victory at Santa Anita. Springer began riding at Churchill Downs in 2004 and booted home her first winner at Tampa Bay Downs in January 2005.

I bet $200 on another debuter in the race #5 Llamada Perdida who went off at 16-to-1. But I heard this horse’s name called only one time throughout the race. As track announcer Trevor Denman was rattling off horses on the backstretch, he commented “and last by a long, long way is Llamada Perdida.”

I guess that’s why people don’t like betting first timers because you can be out of the race quickly, without ever getting a run for your money.
