Bullet Gone Astray Set for GPW Juvenile Sprint

Trainer Henry Collazo said on Tuesday that he plans to run Bullet Gone Astray in Saturday's $100,000 Juvenile Sprint for Florida-bred males at the Gulfstream Park West  meet, being held at Calder.

"He worked real good on Saturday and we're pleased with the way he came out of it," Collazo said.

Bullet Gone Astray breezed a half mile in 47.86 seconds at Gulfstream  Park. It was the tenth fastest of the day's 82 timed workouts at that distance.

Saturday's  race gives Collazo  a  long-sought chance to run Bullet Gone Astray in a dirt stakes in  South Florida.

The son of Gone Astray won his debut race on  a sloppy  dirt track at Gulfstream on  June 28.  But he  was  not eligible for  the Florida Sire stakes series because his breeders had  inadvertently missed a sustaining nomination payment date.

Collazo  improvised, starting with two road trips.  Bullet Gone Astray won the Mountaineer Juvenile at Mountaineer Park in Chester, W.Va.  But he finished  seventh in the Hopeful (Grade 1) at Saratoga and seventh in the Armed Forces Stakes on turf at Gulfstream.

Bullet Gone Astray likely will be one of the favorites in the Juvenile Sprint--one of Saturday's eight races for Florida breds.  Fields will be announced late this afternoon.
