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.

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.
