Moment of Delight Ready for Debut in Sunshine Millions Distaff
Winter Vacation Nearly Over for Multiple Stakes Winner Cajun Delta Dawn

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL –Cherry Wine ran with some of the best horses in the country last spring, finishing third in the Blue Grass (G1) and second by a nose over Florida Derby (G1) and Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Nyquist in the Preakness Stakes (G1).

A since-corrected breathing issue was to blame when Cherry Wine’s form tailed off in the summer and he was well-beaten in his comeback off a three-month layoff in late November, leaving trainer Dale Romans to look ahead to a 2017 campaign.

Tommy Macho Powers to Win G3 Hal’s Hope Despite Trouble


Recovers from Stumble to Earn Third Career Graded Victory

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Paul Pompa Jr. and J Stables’ Tommy Macho recovered from a stumble on the far turn to split horses turning for home and power down the stretch for a 5 ¾-length victory in the $150,000 Hal’s Hope (G3) Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

The 31st running of the one-mile Hal’s Hope for 4-year-olds and up was the last of three graded stakes worth $500,000 in purses on the 12-race program, following Flatlined’s upset of the $200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) and the $150,000 Marshua’s River (G3), won by Sandiva.

Flatlined Comes Alive in Saturday’s G2 Fort Lauderdale


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Trainer Scooter Dickey had every reason to think that the best was yet to come from Flatlined when he saddled the 5-year-old son of Flatter for Saturday’s $200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

“The Flatters just get better with age, like I had with Flat Out. If they don’t go wrong, they’re at their best at 4 or 5 years old,” said Dickey after the improving gelding registered his first graded stakes victory by a neck. “I thought if he ran the race he had last time, he’d have a chance.”

Sandiva wins Marshua’s River (G3) for second year in a row


Mare may race once more in Suwannee River before being bred

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – After Sandiva’s dull effort in the Diana at Saratoga Race Course this past July, trainer Todd Pletcher decided to give the mare a freshening with an eye on the Gulfstream Park Championship meet.

The decision paid off in a big way when Al Shaqab Racing’s Sandiva successfully defended her $150,000 Marshua’s River title on Saturday afternoon. Ridden by Javier Castellano, the 6-year-old Sandiva came along late to post a half-length win over Sea Coast. The Pletcher-trained Isabella Sings, the pacesetter in the 1 1/16-mile turf race, finished third, a nose behind the runner-up.

$150,000 Marshua’s River (G3) Quotes


Trainer Todd Pletcher (Sandiva): " “She just needed a little freshening. She had a solid campaign and she seemed like she was just a touch off form and we knew that she loves Gulfstream. We kind of intentionally freshened her up with these races in mind.”

“She is versatile enough that 7 1/2 is probably a tick short than ideal, but she showed enough quality that she almost got there, but I think, obviously, that race helped her out today.”
