Hesinfront Steps Up in Dania Beach

Reigning Eclipse Award-winning trainer Dale Romans is scheduled to enter the 2013-2014 Gulfstream Park stakes wars Saturday with Hesinfront in the $100,000 Dania Beach (G3).

“Hopefully, he’s in front at the wire,” Romans cracked.            

Hesinfront, a son of War Front, is coming off a late-running victory in a 1 1/8-mile maiden race over the Churchill Downs turf course on Nov. 30. Jesus Castanon has the return mount for the Dania Beach.

“He’s a good horse. He trains like a nice one,” Romans said. “This is a big step up. He got here a little late. I’m not sure he’s gotten completely acclimated, but I think he can run with these horses.

“It’s hard to go from cold to warm. They’ve got to let them adjust,” Romans added. “If you get here before it gets cold, you’re better off, but we got here a little late this winter.”

Romans’ other prominent 2-year-olds – Cleburne, Smart Cover and Medal Count – will have time to acclimate to their South Florida surroundings.

“Cleburne and Smart Cover are both coming off shins. Cleburne’s getting ready to start back training,” said Romans, who hasn’t set a schedule for them yet.

Cleburne and Smart Cover finished 1-2 in the Iroquois Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs on Sept. 7.

Medal Count, who finished 11th in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile is closer to his 2014 debut.

“I’ll run him after the first of the year,” Romans said of the son of Dynaformer. “We’ll probably breeze him on the grass to see what we have, but I think he’s a good horse. If he’s not a good horse, I’ve never been so wrong.”
