Trainer John Kimmel reports that his promising 3-year-old Silver Squire suffered a knee injury in the Spectacular Bid Stakes (gr. III) at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 3 and will be sidelined indefinitely.
Irving and Marjorie Cowan's First Blush, with Jorge Chavez riding, stormed from out of the pack to win Friday's $100,000 Spectacular Bid Stakes (gr. III) for 3-year-olds on opening day at Gulfstream Park.
Chris Thomas Olrick's Super Fuse, making only his second start outside of South Florida and his first start on a sloppy racetrack, pulled away in the stretch for a 3 ¼-length victory Sunday afternoon over favored American Mon in the six-furlong Huntington for 2-year-olds.
Though trainer John Kimmel thinks his Silver Squire will eventually compete at longer distances, he's keeping the son of Silver Ghost in a sprint race, Sunday's Huntington Stakes at Aqueduct.
Whywhywhy will be asked the question Sunday in the $200,000 Futurity (gr. I) at Belmont Park.
