Summer Front, under those very hot Gulfstream hands of jockey “Jersey” Joe Bravo split horses in the stretch to get up for a just in time 3/4 length win in today’s $200,000, GII Fort Lauderdale Stakes, for 4yo and up turfers, at 1 1/16 mile over a “firm” Gulfstream turf course!
Coming 2nd, was Tetradrachm, back that 3/4 length and did everything but win here today. 3rd went to Nikki’s Sandcastle, who had to angle out in the stretch but still finished back another 2 3/4 lengths further with Slumber, filling out today’s super back another 1/2 length even further!
