Keystoneforvictory Wins Gulfstream Stakes

Keystoneforvictory took the lead entering the first turn and was never headed as he went on to win Saturday’s $75,000 Forty Niner Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

Keystoneforvictory, the even-money favorite, beat Tizzarunner by 3 ¼ lengths in the 11/16  mile turf race for 3-year-olds. Fleming finished third, another  half-length back in the nine-horse field.

Rafael Hernandez rode the colt Keystoneforvictory, who won in the fast time of 1:40,15 on the course listed as firm. It was Keystoneforvictory’s first stakes victory and fourth win in eight overall starts. He is a son of prominent turf sire Shakespeare.

Mike Maker trains Keystoneforvictory for owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey.

The win was the first for Hernandez in more than four months. He returned to riding on Thursday after recovering from injuries sustained in a spill at Gulfstream on Feb. 20. He broke a collarbone, fractured some ribs and  needed to have a  kidney removed.
