Warren Eves | February 2, 2012

By Warren Eves Will the 9th race which was run at Gulfstream Park on February 1 have Kentucky Derby implications? Call it a malady.  Label it anything you wish.  We really believe that maiden special weights race on the lawn at a mile and a sixteenth might well be [...]
