Hy Kodiak Warrior Wins Gulfstream Feature

Hy Kodiak Warrior caught Piloting just outside the sixteenth pole and went on to win by a half length in Friday's featured eighth  race at Gulfstream Park.

Wildcat Wish, the 8-5 favorite, finished third--another 2 3/4 lengths back in the one-mile dirt  race for 3-year-olds  and up. 

It was a $62,500 optional claimer with a $44,000 purse.  None of the top three finishers were in for the tag.

Hy Kodiak Warrior won in 1:36.74 on the track listed as fast. He was the 3-1 second choice in the seven-horse field.

Cornelio Velasquez rode Hy Kodiak Warrior for trainer Antonio Sano and owner Mar Racing.

The win was Hy Kodiak Warrior's  second in five starts this year--all at Gulfstream.  He is a son of  Kodiak Kowboy.
In his most recent start, June 19 at Gulfstream, Hy Kodiak Warrior finished third behind winner Rich Daddy and Wildcat Wish in a $62,500 optional claimer at one mile on dirt.
