Welcome To The
Power Jam covered six furlongs in an impressive 1:08.68, hand-ridden by Bob Baffert's go-to jockey Martin Garcia in his first career start. Power Jam reached the quarter pole in an eye-catching: 43.77 in front by two lengths. He was three in front at the furlong pole before cruising home late under steady handling. The Kentucky-bred colt entered off four consecutive bullet works in Southern California, with his last being a handy five-furlong blowout from the gate in :58 4/5
Going On Record
Power Jam breaks the 5 1/2 furlong track record at Santa Anita race track
In his third out at Santa Anita (after an 8-month layoff) he broke the 5 ½ furlong track record previously held by Kona Gold set in 1999. That track record stood for 17 years. Kona Gold is a Multiple Graded Stakes winner of $2,293,384. Kona Gold won the 2000 Eclipse Award for Champion Sprinter. An interesting note… Power Jams time at 5 furlongs the day he set the 5 ½ furlong track record was 4 lengths faster than the 5 furlong track record at Santa Anita.

Breaks a 46-year-old Del Mar track record
In his fifth, out at Del Mar in the Pirate Bounty Stakes, he broke the 5 ½ furlong track record previously held by the great Ack Ack set in 1970. That track record stood for 46 years. Ack Ack won the 1971 Eclipse Award for Champion Sprinter and Horse of the Year. Ack Ack was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986. In a 1986 edition of the Thoroughbred Record, legendary trainer Charles Whittingham said Ack Ack was “the best horse I ever trained.”
