Turf Paradise: L. A. Weekend rides win streak into Phoenix Gold Cup


Last season L. A. Weekend parlayed two wins at Turf Paradise, including the meet’s marquee event, the $75,000 Phoenix Gold Cup, into horse of the meet honors. The 6-year-old gelding looks even bigger and badder this season as he lines up Saturday against 11 others to defend his title in the six-furlong fixture at the Phoenix track.
