Little Mike & Data Link Lead Prospects for Canadian Turf
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Priscilla Vaccarezza’s 5-year-old Florida homebred gelding Little Mike won the $150,000 Canadian Turf Stakes (G3) among three graded stakes victories over the Gulfstream Park grass course early last year, and appears set to defend his title on Sat., Mar. 3 in the 46th running of the Canadian Turf at one mile.
A son of Spanish Steps trained by Dale Romans, Little Mike has come back this winter meeting to add two more victories over the Gulfstream course, beginning with a game allowance score on Dec. 22 in his first start since capturing the Appleton Stakes (G3) late in the meet last year on Apr. 3. He ran his record over the course to five wins in six starts going wire-to-wire in the $150,000 Florida Sunshine Million Turf last out on Jan. 28.
