Undefeated High Velocity takes Bob Hope S. (G3)
Saturday, November 16, 2019
High Velocity's win in Saturday's $100,000 Bob Hope S. (G3) at Del Mar gave Bob Baffert his sixth winner in the past nine runnings of the seven-furlong race for 2-year-olds. The race was previously known as the Hollywood Prevue.

High Velocity, owned by Gary and Mary West, broke his maiden in his Oct. 13 debut at Santa Anita Park and now has $90,000 in his two starts.

High Velocity came out of the gate in first, with Strongconstitution on his flank. The pair was one-two the entire way, with High Velocity shaking clear in the final sixteenth to win by about two lengths in 1:23.16 for the seven furlongs. 

“He handled everything well for his second out,” said Baffert. “It’s always a tough test after you break a maiden and he didn’t have a lot of time between races. But the way he worked we thought he would run well. I liked the way that when that other horse (Strongconstitution) came to him he dug in and took off again. And that’s a nice horse that ran second.”
