ARCADIA, Calif. (April 17, 2015)–Bobby Z Man flew from mid-pack to win Friday's $60,000 River Special allowance by 1½ lengths, as the 4-year-old Unusual Heat gelding covered 6½ furlongs down Santa Anita's hillside turf course in 1:13.27. Ridden by Santiago Gonzalez and trained by Barry Abrams, Bobby Z Man stepped up from a first condition allowance win over the course on April 10 to register his second consecutive win.
Off at 9-2 in a field of nine older horses, Bobby Z Man paid $11.40, $5.00 and $3.40. Bred in California by Abrams and Huston Racing Stable and owned by Huston Racing Stable, Little Red Feather Racing and Bob Zieman, "Bobby Z" got his fifth win from 14 career starts and with the winner’s share of $36,000, improved his earnings to $200,512.
