Where’s Sterling Set for Start in Skip Away

Frank Calabrese’s 5-year-old Where’s Sterling worked six furlongs from the gate in 1:14 3/5 Friday morning at Gulfstream Park and is on target to make his next start as one of the favorites in the $100,000 Skip Away Stakes (G3) going 1 3/16 miles on Florida Derby Day, Saturday March. 31.

“He’s ready to go,” said trainer Nick Canani. “We know he likes the Gulfstream track. He’s run two good races and had traffic trouble last out in the Donn Handicap (G1). He’s a big horse and he can’t just stop and start. The added distance also should help him.”
