Aqueduct: San Pablo likely Florida-bound

San Pablo, a son of Jump Start, has won 9 of 15 starts.

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - San Pablo, winner of Saturday’s Queens County Stakes at Aqueduct, will likely be headed to south Florida for the winter, trainer Todd Pletcher said.

“There are not many opportunities [in New York] really with any decent purses till the Excelsior,” said Pletcher, referring to a Grade 3, $150,000 race run in late March. “This is a horse we’ve always liked. He seems like he’s kind of putting it together. If he can take another step forward then he might fit with the top echelon.”

San Pablo, a son of Jump Start, has won 9 of 15 starts. He earned a 95 Beyer Speed Figure for his half-length victory over Gallant Fields.

I didn't think he won that impressively over some suspect company the other day and I would assume his time in Florida will be spent at the farm getting ready for the New York races next year. If we have seen this horses best races we are looking at restricted stake races for him from here going forward. Doesn't appear to have the quality to win the big ones.
