Gulfstream Park: McPeek laments Golden Ticket's near-miss


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Trainer Ken McPeek said he was both pleased and frustrated with Golden Ticket’s second-place finish in Saturday’s Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Handicap. Golden Ticket rallied to reach even terms with the victorious Palace Malice in late stretch before being outkicked to the wire, dropping a head decision while making his first start since the Grade 1 Stephen Foster more than three months earlier.
