HALLANDALE BEACH, FL -- Jockey Tyler Gaffalione celebrated his 21st birthday in style Saturday at Gulfstream Park, guiding graded-stakes winner East Hall to a dominating 1 3/4-length victory in the $75,000 Sensitive Prince Stakes.

$300,000 Florida Sire Stakes Susan’s Girl Quotes
Trainer Stanley Gold (Ballet Diva): “I don’t think she was handling the track (last time out). She was sliding. She handled it today, but the stretch got longer. By the eighth-pole it looked like there was another mile to go. The other one (stablemate Silent Prayer) almost caught her. She put away the ones that were pushing her and had enough to hold off our other horse."
