Pay Any Price Wins Turf Sprint Stakes at Gulfstream
Pay Any Price added to his stellar record on the Gulfstream turf course. He won on it for the 16th time in 24 starts--mostly stakes and high-end allowance/optional claiming races.

With Edgard Zayas riding, Pay Any Price won the 5-furlong turf race in 56.08 seconds on the course listed as Good.
The son of Wildcat Heir set the course record of 53.61seconds in winning the Silks Run Stakes on March 31, 2017. He won the Bob Umphrey in 2017 and 2018, and did not run in the race last year.
