Gulfstream Today - 12.5.12


The Lead: Saturday's $100,000 Adena Springs Sugar Swirl (G3) drew a field of seven including Dust and Diamonds, who finished second Nov. 3 behind Groupie Doll in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1).


Purchased after the Breeders' Cup by TNT Stud for $900,000, Dust and Diamonds will be making her first start for Todd Pletcher, who has been Gulfstream's leading trainer the past nine consecutive years.

The six furlong event also drew three horses trained by Marty Wolfson, including Calder stakes winners Spectacular Sky and Nakano as well as Golden Mystery.

Who's Hot: Jockeys Jose Lezcano and Joe Rocco Jr. visited the winner's circle twice during Wednesday's eight-race program. Lezcano who the sixth with Clement Rock ($6.60) and seventh with Imperial Luck ($3.80) while Rocco took the fourth aboard Dinahmite Sal ($11.20) and was placed first by the stewards in the second with Miss Lamour ($15.20).

Meanwhile, jockey Jesus Rio brought home Dolce Luna in the fifth to the tune of $81.60.

Carryovers: Rainbow 6 - $3,352.64.
