Gold and Roses re-rallies in Times Square

Email

Game efforts by two horses that surrendered the lead in midstretch only to come back and win highlighted the run Sunday at Aqueduct.

In the $150,000 Times Square Division for males, Gold and Roses battled back along the rail under Shaun Bridgmohan after being headed by Big Apple Daddy to win by a half-length. Big Apple Daddy held off favored Galloping Grocer by a nose for second.

Gold and Roses took the lead from the pace-setting Summerland leaving the three-furlong pole, but Big Apple Daddy was right to his outside and looked ready to go by. Though Big Apple Daddy put his head in front, Gold and Roses had something left. Trained by Tom Bush, he covered the mile in 1:36.05 over a track labeled fast.

"He was all heart," Bridgmohan said. "Big Apple Daddy attacked him from the half-mile [pole] and he kept digging in. It was a very gutsy effort and a good job by Tom Bush."

In the $150,000 , Pretty Suzi gave up the lead to favored Dynamo Hum in upper stretch and came back along the rail to draw clear to a 2 1/4-length victory. It was 7 3/4 lengths back to Ms Litigator in third.

Pretty Suzi showed tremendous courage for a filly making her third start. She dueled through four furlongs in 44.71 seconds, was passed by Dynamo Hum in upper stretch, but re-rallied under Pablo Fragoso to win going away. She covered the mile in 1:36.75 and returned $14.40 to win.
