Little Mike Never Headed in Appleton

Little Mike continues his recent frontrunning success with a wire-to-wire victory in the Grade 3 Appleton at Gulfstream Park on Sunday.

Joe Bravo took full advantage of the inside post and nursed Little Mike on the lead through solid fractions on :23.25, :46.07, and 1:09.05. Successful Mission, Cherokee Artist, Nicanor, and Commandeered all gave chase but Little Mike ran that group into the ground.

The winner, trained by Dale Romans, crossed the line a length in front and completed his flat mile journey in 1:32.87.

Riviera Cocktail rallied from last to neck fellow closer Asphalt for the place. Mikoshi, Successful Mission, Cherokee Artist, Nicanor, and Commandeered rounded out the order of finish.
