April Rose was coming off a lengthy layoff when she won a $25,000 optional-claiming race going five furlongs on turf Nov. 4 at Gulfstream Park West. The circumstances are similar when she returns in a $35,000 optional-claiming race that kicks off Thursday’s eight-race card at Gulfstream Park West. The five-furlong race on turf drew six horses and will go off at approximately 1:15 p.m. Eastern.
