Gulfstream: Meet off to an exciting start


Three races in the books and three tight finishes. And thus far, a main track that seems to be playing fairly.

A maiden, Amadorable, rallied four wide to nip Dreamingof Lillian and beat winners in the opener. Midnight Thunder somehow got up in the final jump although from all appearances he had been beaten, to defeat heartbreak loser Fly South in the second and Naphati along in the shadow of the wire to nip Duke of Doom in the third, the first turf event of the new year.

      Back to the main for the fourth with the classy Launch N Relaunch holding at 9-5 on the board although perhaps beatable considering the sudden class plunge he's taken of late.
