All Included, War Correspondent top 17 nominations for Miami Mile

Multiple Grade 1 stakes-placed All Included and War Correspondent top a list of 17 nominations for the $100,000 Miami Mile (G3) on turf at Gulfstream Park April 29.

Wertheimer and Frere’s All Included, who has been stakes-placed in the past two runnings of Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap (G1), captured the Appleton (G3) at Gulfstream Park April 1.

The 6-year-old son of Include, who is trained by Todd Pletcher, is joined by stablemate Decorated Soldier, a stakes winner on dirt.

Calumet Farm, Sagamore Farm and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners’ War Correspondent finished fourth and was placed third in this year’s Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap in his second start of 2017. The Christophe Clement-trained had finished third in the 2015 Gulfstream Turf and won the 2015 Appleton. Clement also nominated Lubash, the 10-year-old multiple graded-stakes winner who was placed first in the Tropical Turf Handicap (G3) at Gulfstream Park West last time out.

William F. Clifton Jr.’s Our Way, who finished third behind All Included in the Appleton after winning the Sunshine Millions Turf; Robert Baker and William Mack’s Smooth Daddy, a multiple graded stakes-placed 6-year-old trained by Tom Albertrani; and Scivener Stable’s Trust Factor, a late-developing 4-year-old son of Paddy O’Prado who has won four of seven starts on turf; have also been nominated for the mile turf stakes, the first graded stakes of the Spring/Summer Meet.

The $100,000 Powder Break, a supporting stakes on the Miami Mile card to be run at a mile on turf for fillies and mares, attracted 20 nominations, including the Clement-trained multiple graded stakes-placed Stormy Victoria.

Slacks of Course Runs to Breeding in Juvenile Maiden Race

Jacks or Better Farm’s Slacks of Course ($2.80), a full brother to Grade 3 winner Dogwood Trail, raced greenly in spots but prevailed in Thursday’s fifth race by a nose.

Ridden by Tyler Gaffalione, the daughter of Awesome of Course broke alertly to open up a clear lead during a 21.99-second first quarter of a mile before being joined by a long shot The Chamo on the far turn. The two battled head to head through the stretch before Slacks of Course fought off his challenger to capture his debut for Fred Brei’s Jacks or Better Farm and trainer Ralph Nicks.

“He still has a lot to earn. He’s just a baby. He showed me a lot of talent training in the morning. Fred, obviously, gets them very ready at the farm. When they come in, it’s more of an education thing,” Nicks said. “He’ll get better down the road.”

Slacks of Course ran 4 ½-furlongs in 52.03 seconds. The Chamo, ridden by Emisael Jaramillo, finished second, a length ahead of Rocky Strange and Edgard Zayas.

Slacks of Course is nominated to the Florida Sire Stakes, a three-leg series for 2-year-olds sired by stallions standing in Florida that will get underway Aug. 5.

Leading rider Gaffalione rode four winners Thursday, including the winners of three straight races, tallying aboard Cajun Queen ($7) in the fourth, Slacks of Course in the fifth and Beautyofaday ($7.40) in the sixth. The 22-year-old Davie, FL native later scored aboard Galleon Mast ($4.60) in the eighth.
