Turf Paradise: Corazondelcampeon wins Palo Verde Handicap


Corazondelcampeon ($5.40), so promising last summer in Southern California before being knocked out by an ailment and then seemingly unable to get back to his good form, bounced back in a big way with a 2 1/4-length victory in Turf Paradise's $40,000 Palo Verde Handicap for 3-year-old sprinters. Rattlesnake Joe finished third as the 4-5 favorite.
