Continuing wet weather conditions in South Florida have led Gulfstream West officials to postpone four Florida-bred turf stakes scheduled for Saturday until the weekend of Nov. 21-22.
The $60,000 Millions Turf Preview for 3-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles, where 7-year-old Galleon Mast is targeting a three-peat, and the $60,000 Juvenile Fillies Turf at a mile have both been moved to Nov. 21.
The Nov. 22 card will now include the $60,000 Filly & Mare Turf Preview, a 7 1/2-furlong grass race for females potentially headed by Picara, 4-for-6 lifetime at Gulfstream Park West, and the $60,000 Juvenile Turf for 2-year-olds at a mile.
Even with the change in schedule, five $60,000 state-bred stakes are on tap Saturday for the main track: the Millions Classic Preview for 3-year-olds and up at one mile (Race 4), the Juvenile Fillies Sprint (Race 5) and the Juvenile Sprint (Race 7), each at 6 1/2 furlongs, and the six-furlong Millions Sprint Preview (Race 6) and the seven-furlong Millions Distaff (Race 8).
The Millions Sprint Preview drew Shivaree, a multiple stakes-winner around one turn, who returns to action after running seventh in the Runhappy Travers Stakes this summer at Saratoga Race Course. He was the runner-up behind Tiz the Law in the 1 1/8-mile Curlin Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park on March 28.
