Hernandez to Ride at Gulfstream Park

Brian Hernandez Fort Larned
Brian Hernandez Jr. has routinely taken his tack to Fair Grounds following the Fall Meet at Churchill Downs, but the 27-year-old journeyman said Wednesday he will try his hand at Gulfstream Park this winter.
 
“I talked it over with (agent) Frank (Bernis) Tuesday and he was already thinking about it,” Hernandez said. “It makes sense to go now. We can walk into any barn and say, ‘Hey, we won the Breeders’ Cup Classic.’ Now is the best time to go.”
 
Hernandez won the Breeders’ Cup Classic aboard Fort Larned for trainer Ian Wilkes and the day prior he won the Ack Ack Handicap (GIII) with Neck ’n Neck, who is being pointed to the Clark Handicap Presented by Norton Healthcare (GI) on Nov. 23.
 
“Fort Larned and Neck ’n Neck are both going and we want to follow them,” Hernandez said. “We also want to try to pick up some other business.”
 
Hernandez finished eighth on Fire It Up in the Palm Beach (GIII) in his lone career mount at Gulfstream Park.
