Gulfstream: Prospect Prospectus
Promising 2-year-olds Kick off Saturday's Gulfstream Card
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Gulfstream's Championship Meet has historically been a proving ground for youngsters from the nation's leading stables. Last winter, the speedy Verrazano was a stylish debut winner for trainer Todd Pletcher on New Year's Day, while eventual Kentucky Derby winner Orb started his rise to prominence for trainer Shug McGaughey in a first-level allowance on January 26. That day's card also featured another future star in Close Hatches, who aired in her unveiling for trainer Bill Mott and is a likely Eclipse Award finalist as champion 3-year-old filly.
Gulfstream News & Notes December 6
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Trainer Stan Gold regarded Grande Shores as one of his top 2-year-olds when the Jacks or Better Farm’s homebred launched his career in 2010.
After completing his juvenile season, in which he was stakes-placed, the son of Black Mambo was stricken with a major case of colitis that kept him away from the races for a year. Having recovered sufficiently to resume his racing career, Grande Shores’ performance on the track was clearly compromised by the effects of his illness.
