Compliance Officer Wintering in Florida

Trainer Bruce Brown has several horses at Gulfstream for the upcoming 2011-2012 meet, including his multiple-stakes winner Compliance Officer.


The 5-year-old gelding won five consecutive races over the summer and fall for Brown, including three stakes races for New York breds, before finishing 11th in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs.


“The Breeders’ Cup was a tough race for him, breaking from the No. 12 post,” said Brown, who claimed Compliance Officer for $25,000 back in May. “We brought him down to Gulfstream to regroup. He had always run in New York and the Breeders’ Cup was the first time he had shipped and raced. Everything seems good, though. Right now he’s nominated to the Claiming Crown (Dec. 3) at Fair Grounds. That’s the short-term plan for the rest of the year. If we go there we will bring him back (to Gulfstream) and point for something a little later in the meet. But we haven’t made any firm decisions.”


Brown will also be shipping a promising 2-year-old colt to Gulfstream in the form of Spring to the Sky, who broke his maiden at first asking Sept. 24 at Belmont Park by 9 ¾ lengths. Brown said the son of Langfuhr may run one more time in New York before shipping south to prepare for Gulfstream’s rich, 3-year-old stakes program.
