Rich Daddy, ridden by Emisael Jaramillo, won the one-mile allowance/optional claiming race in 1:37.67 on the dirt track listed as fast. The purse was $44,000, and none of the six starters were in for the claiming price of $62,500.
Eddie Castro, rider of Wildcat Wish, lodged a claim of foul against Rich Daddy for alleged interference. But stewards ruled that there was bumping by both Rich Daddy, on the inside, and by Wildcat Wish. Thus, they let the results stand--with even-money favorite Rich Daddy on top.
The win was Rich Daddy's fourth in five starts this year--all on dirt at Gulfstream. Three of the wins were optional claimers at one mile. The other was the Rough and Ready starters stake/allowance on Feb. 15.
Rich Daddy, a 5-year-old gelding, is trained by Victor Barboza and owned by Winds of Change Racing.
