Weekend Stakes Races
Saturday’s races in the Florida Sire Stakes Series are the $200,000 Affirmed for 2-year-old males and the $200,000 Susan’s Girl for 2-year-old fillies.
Both races are seven furlongs on dirt.

The Sire Stakes series are sponsored by the Ocala-based Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association.

The Sire Stakes races are restricted to sons and daughters of Florida-based stallions whose owners have nominated them for the series.

On Saturday, Gulfstream also will have two turf races for 2-year-olds.

The $100,000 Sharp Susan is for fillies and will be run at what Gulfstream calls “about 7 ½ furlongs.”

The $100,000 Proud Man is for males and also will be about 7 ½ furlongs.

Both races are open to horses bred in any state. But they are “Florida preferred” in that the Florida Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association is offering  bonuses of up to $25,000 in each race for Florida-breds that finish first, second or third.

Entries for Saturday’s races will be out on Wednesday afternoon.

For this Sunday, the Gulfstream Condition Book  shows the $75,000 Wasted Tears Stakes, a1 1/16 miles on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.
