The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


 Gulfstream Park Press Staff – Grade 1 winner Drain the Clock is scheduled to make his 2022 debut in Saturday’s $150,000 Gulfstream Park Sprint.

            Owned by Slam Dunk Racing, Madaket Stable LLC, Wonder Stables and Michael Nentwig, the 4-year-old son of Maclean’s Music most recently captured a six-furlong optional claiming allowance in 1:08.63 while coming off a 3 ½-month layoff at Gulfstream Dec. 12.

            The Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained colt has won seven of 11 starts, including a victory in the Woody Stephens (G1) at Belmont Park. Drain the Clock, who finished second in last year’s Fountain of Youth (G2) at Gulfstream on the stretch out to 1 1/16-miles, also won the Bay Shore (G3) and Woody Stephens at seven furlongs.

            Drain the Clock is slated to clash with multiple graded-stakes winner Diamond Oops, a five-time stakes winner at Gulfstream for trainer Patrick Biancone; Miles Ahead, who captured the Smile Sprint (G3) on the July 3 Summit of Speed card at Gulfstream; Francatelli, a multiple stakes winner trained by Brendan Walsh; and Carlos David-trained Gatsby, who captured the Sunshine Sprint at Gulfstream last time out.
