Editor wins Gulfstream tourney


Tom Quigley, the editor and publisher of HorsePlayer Magazine, defeated Danny Hogan to win the $100,000 first-place price in Gulfstream Park's Turf-Vivor III handicapping contest.

Quigley, 44, who lives in Pasadena, Calif., captured the contest when Zipcody, his selection in the 10th race, got up by a head over Hogan's selection, Subtle Saratoga, for second place. Zipcody returned $3.80 to place and $2.80 to show while Subtle Saratoga paid $2.80 to show. Quigley further cemented the victory when his pick in the 11th and the tournament's final race, Coherent, won gate to wire. Hogan's selection, Arab Miss, was off the board.

While Quigley earned $100,000, Hogan, 62, took home the $10,000 runner-up check. Hogan also won $2,000 for being the leader after Saturday's second round. Mike Mayo, 49, of Richardson, Texas, finished third, and William Guenther, 54, of Brick, N.J., was fourth. Both earned $2,500.

All four qualify for the 2005 Daily Racing Form/National Thoroughbred Racing Association handicapping championship.
