Yourdreamsormine takes Bull Gator Stakes

Yourdreamsormine and jockey Emisael Jaramillo win the Bull Gator Stakes by three lengths Friday.

Third last out in a $30,000 “beaten” claimer, Yourdreamsormine was first home Friday at Gulfstream Park in the $75,000 Bull Gator Stakes for Florida-bred sprinters.

Under Emisael Jaramillo, Bull Gator pounced on dueling pacesetters We’re All Set and Grande Shores in midstretch and drew clear late to win by three lengths. We’re All Set held second by a neck over Grande Shores but was disqualified to third for interference past the half-mile pole.

Grande Shores, the 4-5 favorite, was racing along the rail with We’re All Set just to his outside when We’re All Set drifted in, causing Grande Shores to check and lose several lengths. Even so, Grande Shores had the form to recover from such an incident and win anyway but ran below his best form Friday.

Not so Yourdreamsormine, who made his first start for trainer Milton Wolfson, having been transferred from the barn of trainer Bill Kaplan when Kaplan retired last month. Yourdreamsormine, a son of Mr. Sekiguchi and Fly Apple Shu, by Forbidden Apple, won for the first time since August and for the fourth time in 23 starts. Owned by N T S Stabled and bred by Bridlewood Farm. He ran seven furlongs on a fast track in 1:22.33 and paid $9.80.

Horrible ride by Zayas. Tried to take his horse inside when he should have gone around. He looked like a dunce and cost his horse the race.
