GEORGIE BOY, GOMEZ TOGETHER AGAIN IN DAMASCUS STAKES
Garrett Gomez reunites with Georgie Boy in Saturday’s Damascus Stakes for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs. It marks the first race for the California-bred son Tribal Rule since March 15, when he won the Grade II San Felipe Stakes, and the first ride for Gomez on Georgie Boy since they won the Grade I Del Mar Futurity together last year. Gomez, whose mounts have earned more than $17.7 million to date this year, is seeking his third straight national money-winning title. He leads runner-up Robby Albarado by more than $2.2 million.
“Georgie Boy has been doing everything great,” said Gomez, who has worked the gelding owned and bred by George Schwary and trained by Kathy Walsh several times en route to his comeback. “We’ve tried to get enough air in him to make sure he’s fit, without going too fast. He’s a classy individual and he’s doing good.”
