In his first start since capturing the Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) last summer, Competitive Edge rolled to an 8 1/4-length victory in the $60,000 Tamarac Stakes March 27 at Gulfstream Park to stay unbeaten.
Lets Go Stable and WinStar Farm's Daredevil, whose 3-year-old debut in the Feb. 28 Fasig-Tipton Swale Stakes (gr. II) was postponed until March 7 due to heavy rains, returned to the work tab March 2.
Trainer Todd Pletcher won three graded stakes races with older horses Feb. 7 at Gulfstream Park, but he also has a wealth of talented 3-year-olds in South Florida.

WinStar Farm announced 2015 stud fees for most of its 22-stallion roster, which is headed again by leading sire Distorted Humor at $100,000 stands and nurses, and includes a new fee for leading freshman sire Super Saver.
Super Saver's first crop began attracting attention at the 2013 yearling sales. His foals have only improved since then and have now placed the 2010 Kentucky Derby winner at the top of the freshman sire list.
Competitive Edge lived up to his 3-5 odds with a no-doubt-about-it romp in the $350,000 Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) for 2-year-olds on closing day of the Saratoga Race Course summer meet Sept. 1.
I Spent It tries to become the first 2-year-old since City Zip to sweep the Saratoga Special and Hopeful (gr. I) stakes if the son of Super Saver starts in the latter race Sept. 1, closing day at Saratoga Race Course.
