Good Journey takes Citation

Good Journey became the second horse to win consecutive Citation Handicaps, taking the $500,000 turf race at Hollywood Park by 11/4 lengths Saturday.

In 26 runnings of the Citation, Forlitano was the only other to win in consecutive years (1997-98). For Good Journey, the race may have been the last of his 15-race career.

"We're looking to sell him as a stallion," trainer Wally Dollase said. "He's in the best form of his life and his breeding is impeccable. He should make a great sire."

Good Journey, ridden by Pat Day, paid $4, $3 and $2.60.
