Capo Bastone Wins Gulfstream Return

Making his first start since a third-place finish Nov. 3 in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1), Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners 3-year-old colt Capo Bastone raced six-wide on a ‘sloppy’ main track to win Saturday's ninth race, a 1 1/16th mile allowance event by a head over the longshot Offlee Fast. Capo Bastone covered the distance in 1:48.16.

Ridden by John Velazquez, Capo Bastone had finished third in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile behind stablemate Shanghai Bobby. The son of Street Boss began his career by breaking his maiden in Aug. 2012 at Del Mar.

“We had a pretty wide trip, I think it was probably more impressive than the final margin of victory, or what the final time suggested,” said Pletcher. “He broke cleanly, which kind of put him in a difficult position and of course at Gulfstream, you don’t want to take away what is coming easily, and he was all of six wide all the way around the first turn. He put in a nice run around the backside where we got into position. He’s the kind of horse who waits on his competition a little bit. All and all I’m very happy with the race. I think he did get a little tired on the last part, but the track was also demanding today.

“We'll take a few days to digest everything. We talked about a race like the Rebel, where timing wise it would work out well, so that’s still under consideration."
