OBS graduate Texas Wedge got the New Year off to a good start, rating between horses in the early going of Santa Anita’s $202,500 Joe Hernandez Stakes (G2), closing to take the lead in the final sixteenth and scoring by three quarters of a length. It’s the first stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Colonel John, racing in the colors of Altamira Racing Stable, Rafter JR Ranch LLC, STD Racing Stable and A. Miller.
