GP West Begins Stakes Races This Weekend

Gulfstream Park West this weekend will have the first stakes races of its 2015 meet.

Gulfstream  Park is holding the GP West meet at Calder as part of  a lease  agreement with that track in Miami Gardens.

The $75,000 Little Miss Magic will be run Saturday, at 1 1/8 miles on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.

The $75,000 Spider John will  be run  on Sunday, at  1 1/8 miles on turf for 3-year-olds and  up.

Lochte, a multiple graded stakes  winner, heads the  seven-horse field for the Spider John.  He is  owned by Crossed Sabres Farm and is trained by Marcus Vitali.

Vitali leads GP West trainers with eight wins through Thursday.

 Vitali and Crossed Sabres have pre-entered Valid  for the Breeders'  Cup Dirt Mile.  That race will be on Saturday Oct. 31 at Keeneland in Lexington.  Ky.
