Tiger Blood Earns 1st Stakes Win in The $100K Pelican

The 33rd running of The Pelican Stakes for $100,000 went to the 4-year old colt Tiger Blood with a fast time of 1:09.42 in the six furlong dirt race.

In the second and final stakes race on the program, the 4-year old Florida-bred colt demonstrated his skill and endurance in this one length victory over a favorite, Springmeier.  He was four wide and battled with Springmeier entering the stretch, and prevailed late after a long stretch drive. 

Sonoma Crush dueled inside early, chased and held on for third.  Tiger Blood was ridden to victory by jockey Pablo Morales and is trained by Darien Rodriguez.  The total Win Place Show pool came to $179,787 and the charts are as follows below.  For a full recap of today's racing please be sure to check our website.
