A big fat congrats to jockey, Rito Almanza, who was making his first starts in the United States on July 2nd.  Though his first runner, Honey Bee a Winner, did not end up in the money, his second starter, 25 to 1 shot Valentine Boy took the lead and did not falter, winning the 9th and last race on the card at Santa Anita.  What an awesome way to win it!
