Pick 5 will also have a guaranteed jackpot pool of $50,000 and consist of races 7 through 11.

Shatak Captures Friday Feature

Silver Moon Racing LLC’s Shatak ($15.60) picked up right where he left of when returning to Gulfstream’s turf course off a three-month freshening when he notched his second straight victory in Friday’s eighth and featured race, a 1 mile turf allowance for older runners.

The 5-year-old son of Cryptoclearance, who had not run since capturing an allowance on Dec. 27, ran down the frontrunners to score a 1 ½-length victory over McIlroy, covering the mile distance in 1:33.47.The George Weaver trainee has never finished off the board when running on the Gulfstream lawn and now boasts a record of three wins and a third from four starts over the surface.

“This horse is particularly fond of this turf course here,” Weaver said. “We’d been trying to enter him for a while. We always look for 7 ½ furlong to 1 mile races, because that’s his best distance, and we just couldn’t get lucky and get a race to go, but finally, after a long wait we got the race to go, and he ran like I thought he could.”

Weaver also praised jockey Gabe Saez for his ride and decision-making aboard his horse.

“I asked Gabriel [Saez] to warm him up good and try to put him in a good tactical position. He did it, but then they kind of ran away from him a little as they turned up the pace around the backside. When I saw the first quarter in 23 [seconds] and then they picked it up even more and went the half in 45 [seconds] and change, I said, ‘This is going to work out well. He’s in the spot he should be in.’ Gabe did a great job. He saved ground every time he had a chance to, and I’m glad to win with him. This is the first time I’ve won with Gabe, and it worked out very well.”
