Gentlemen’s Bet Awarded Victory in $350,000 De Francis Memorial Dash

Win Via DQ Highlights $850,000 Fall Festival of Racing Program

– Harry T. Rosenblum’s Gentlemen’s Bet notched a victory in Saturday’s $350,000 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash with the assist of a stewards’ decision that resulted in the disqualification of first-place finisher Trouble Kid to second.

Seeking his fifth straight victory since being claimed for $12,500 in July, Trouble Kid found trouble on the backstretch, where the stewards determined that the Ramon Preciado-trained 3-year-old interfered with the eventual second-place finisher while crossing over to take the lead. Trouble Kid went on to post an apparent three-quarters of a length victory in the six-furlong sprint before the inquiry sign was posted and Gentlemen’s Bet’s jockey Daniel Centeno registered an objection.
