With a big late burst, undefeated Summer Front concluded his 2-year-old campaign with an impressive 1 1/2-length victory over favored Finale in the $100,000 Dania Stakes on the Gulfstream Park turf Dec. 18.
Favored In Summation regained some of the sparkle he lost last season with a sharp one-length win in the $98,000 El Conejo Handicap (gr. III) at Santa Anita on New Year's Day.
In Summation, invading from New York for trainer Christophe Clement, nipped Greg's Gold by a thin nose in a heart-pounding finish to Sunday's $300,000 Bing Crosby Handicap (gr. I) at Del Mar.
