It’s déjà vu for Pletcher

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL -- It’s déjà vu all over again. For the second time in 10 days, a 3-year-old son of Distorted Humor from the Todd Pletcher made a successful return at short odds off a lengthy layoff. Zaikov took center stage on Friday the 13th and Catron followed suit in the fifth race on Sunday’s card at Gulfstream Park. A homebred for Aaron and Marie Jones, the big bay colt scored at even-money in his June 15 unveiling at Belmont Park, where he had earned an 84 Beyer Speed Figure. He hadn’t seen afternoon action since then, but was hammered down to 2-5 while facing only four rivals.

$100,000 Harlan’s Holiday Quotes

Trainer Nick Gonzalez (River Seven): “It’s quite a thrill. This is my first stakes win at Gulfstream. It was an impressive performance – a track record.

“I was wanting to get him back on the dirt from the time he ran (second) in the Prince of Wales at Fort Erie. That option was over in Canada because all we had was Polytrack and turf. We got him on turf and he was a rock star on turf so we couldn’t take him off that.

So many faces in and out of my life
Some will last
Some will just be now and then
Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes
I'm afraid it's time for goodbye again

Say goodbye my baby
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye my baby

$100,000 Dania Beach (G3) Quotes

Trainer Shug McGaughey (Mr Speaker): "He ran good. He’d been training good. His first two races were better than they looked. When I ran him at Saratoga, Javier rode him and missed the hole, but came back and told me that he liked him a lot. A bug boy rode him after that, probably moved a little bit early on him against Request; he might have been best that day. We were what, 10-1 today and Request was 2-1? Then he came back and broke his maiden—everyone took back and he just found himself on the lead.

Gravesend Handicap Quotes

David Jacobson, winning trainer of Strapping Groom (No. 4): "If he's not quite back to that Forego race, he's definitely headed in that direction. He came out of the Fall Highweight like a million dollars and has been getting better and better. He had a quarter-crack [after the Forego] we were working on. I was being a little aggressive running him, and he still ran well. That's all grown out now and it's a thing of the past."

Jockey Quotes

RAFAEL BEJARANO, SWISS LAKE YODELER, Winner: "On the turn, she looked like she was going to get a little tired, especially because the speed hasn't been stopping. It looked like Rovenna had something left, so I had to work hard to make sure she wouldn't get away. She doesn't have that quick acceleration, but she always tries. She'll do better in longer races."
