$300,000 Gulfstream Park Turf (G1) Quotes


Trainer Marcus Vitali (Lochte):“It’s like they say in football after you win the Super Bowl, ‘I want to go to Disneyland.’ I talked it over with the owner and we were taking our chance here. His numbers were going up and up. Myself and my staff, we all felt really comfortable with the horse’s progress. The breeding shows he can get the job done. I didn’t see any reason why he couldn’t accomplish great things. I didn’t go into this expecting to come out on top but I surely hoped I would. Everything unfolded the right way, and here we are.”

Gulfstream Today 2.7.14


Triple Charm on the Turf

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL -- British import Triple Charm, making just her second start in the last 14 months, accelerated smartly in the stretch to annex today's featured ninth race at Gulfstream Park, a $54,500 optional claiming event over a mile on grass. A winner of four times in 14 outings in her native country, the daughter of Pivotal missed 2013 entirely, and was saddled by trainer Christophe Clement for the first time on January 15 in a one-mile turf test at Gulfstream. The 6-year-old got off to a slow start that day and proved hard to settle for jockey Joe Bravo en route to a sixth-place finish.
