Weather could be a key factor in the outcome of Saturday's two graded turf stakes at Gulfstream Park. The $100,000 Canadian Turf Handicap (gr. IIIT) drew a field of nine – including three entered for the main-track-only – while the $100,000 Suwannee River Handicap (gr. IIIT) attracted 12 fillies and mares.
Robert S. Evans' 5-year-old homebred mare New Economy won the $200,000 La Prevoyante Handicap (gr. II) last year and goes for a repeat tally Saturday in the 12-furlong turf test at Calder.
Sixty Seconds, who made her North American debut just last month, captured Monday's Glens Falls Handicap (gr. IIIT) by a head over Primetimevalentine at Saratoga. Alternate was just a neck back in third.
Trainer Christophe Clement, whose barn has been hit hard by the poor weather this summer forcing so many races off the Saratoga turf, starts three in Monday's $100,000-added Glens Falls Handicap (gr. IIIT) for fillies and mares at 1 3/8 mile.
Hero's Tribute, Sky Mesa, Dynever, and three of Christophe Clement's fillies turned in recent works at Belmont Park.
