Daveron & Louvakhova Clash in Wide-Open Marshua's River

By Jack Will

HALLANDALE BEACH - Live Oak Plantation’s 7-year-old German-bred mare Daveron won three straight turf stakes last year for trainer Graham Motion and Michel Jean Zerolo’s 4-year-old filly Louvakhova was impressive capturing the Frances A. Genter Stakes on Oct. 15 at Calder in her American debut for trainer Marty Wolfson.

The two will meet as the likely choices in a full field of 14 fillies and mares drawn for Saturday’s $100,000 Marshua’s River Stakes (G3) going 1 1/16 miles on turf at Gulfstream Park 

Casse Looking Forward to Weekend Stakes at Gulfstream

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – A cursory glance at the past-performance lines of Exclusive Love might lead handicappers to assume that she is a filly with a history of physical problems. The many gaps between her races, though, have nothing to do with soundness and everything to do with weather.
“She’s The Rainmaker,” said trainer Mark Casse, explaining Exclusive Love’s inconsistent racing schedule.
The 5-year-old daughter of Bernstein, weather permitting, is scheduled to run in Saturday’s $100,000 Marshua’s River (G3) over the Gulfstream Park turf course.

Apriority Puts on a Show in Mr. Prospector Stakes

By Ed Gray

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Big Drama was a very tough act to follow in the stable of trainer David Fawkes, but Apriority still put on quite a show Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
Apriority didn’t come close to the track record of 1:08.28 that Big Drama set while winning $100,000 Mr. Prospector Stakes (G3), but the 4-year-old son of Grand Slam turned in a mind-boggling performance of his own to give Fawkes back-to-back triumphs in the 59th running of the six-furlong stakes.
