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.
TRAINERS LOOK BACK ONE FINAL TIME
So many faces in and out of my life
Some will last
Some will just be now and then
Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes
I'm afraid it's time for goodbye again
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye my baby
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye my baby
--Billy Joel “Say Goodbye to Hollywood”
