The success began immediately as the first three races were won by Broberg and Hernandez. Entebbe ($3.40 to win) won the opening race Friday, a $10,000-level claiming event at one mile, for owner Jerry Wheeler of Beaumont, Texas. Races two and three were won for End Zone Athletics of Mansfield, Texas as Drago’s Pearl ($8) won the second, a $20,000-level claiming race, and Unbridled Venture ($5.60) took the third, a $5,000-level claiming event. Races two and three were both at 6-1/2 furlongs.
The final two races on the night presented the next winning possibilities for Broberg and Hernandez. They won the eighth race with Tapindeed ($3.40) also for End Zone Athletics, scoring a $34,000 allowance sprint at five furlongs. The clean sweep came up short as Bandolera’s Gold didn’t start well in race nine, finishing last of 11.
