ROSE RUNNERS LOOKING TO SHAKE-UP SATURDAY’S STALLION STAKES

“The experience of the first race helped, and adding the blinkers helped too,” Rose said of Cat Five Hurricane’s transformation from a lackluster sixth-place finish in his debut to a 4 ¼-length victory in his second career start. “I also thought Jonathan (Gonzales) rode him well.
