Gulfstream Park: Reveron will skip Holy Bull

Reveron, winner of the Gulfstream Park Derby, will skip the Holy Bull Stakes.

Trainer Angel Bezara said he’s decided to skip the Grade 3 Holy Bull at a mile on Jan. 29 with Reveron, who posted his third consecutive victory in the inaugural Gulfstream Park Derby. Bezara’s next major goal for Reveron will be the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26 with one prep somewhere in between.

“I’d like to stay here with him, if I can,” Bezara, who does not speak English, said through his interpreter Eibar Coa. “Hopefully, they can put up an overnight stakes of some kind for us at Gulfstream, it’s all he’s eligible for. If not, we’ll look out of town, perhaps Tampa.”

Rainbow 6 hit for $414,166

The 10-cent Rainbow 6 was taken down to the tune of $414,166 on Saturday, with the winning ticket purchased at Northville Downs approximately 30 minutes outside of Detroit. A group of three partners that included Mark Haidar, an attorney from Dearborn, Mich., constructed a perfect ticket that cost $1,323 and featured only one single, trainer Todd Pletcher’s undefeated 3-year-old prospect Discreet Dancer.

“It’s a great bet that Gulfstream started,” Haidar said. “I will play the $2 pick six sometimes at other tracks, but if you’re not a big bettor, you really don’t feel like you have a chance. With the 10-cent bet, people can compete with a big bettor. You can really spread your ticket out.”

◗ Pletcher’s duo of Algorithms – who is Holy Bull bound – and Awesome Maria headlined Monday’s work tab at Palm Meadows, both going an easy five furlongs in 1:02.40.
