In Saturday's only stakes race, Carotari won the $75,000 Silks Run for the second straight year.

Carotari was the 7-5 favorite and Citrus Burst was  the 17-1 sixth betting choice in the eight-horse field.  The Connector, at 8-1, finished third-a neck behind Citrus Burst. The 4-7 exacta paid  $45.40 on a $2 bet. The 4-7-5 trifecta paid $320.40 on a $2 bet.

The victory  was Carotari's sixth in eighteen career starts.  He has three wins and one second place finish in four turf races at Gulfstream.

Carotari, a 5-year-old gelding, is a son of Artie Schiller whose turf stakes wins included the 2005 Breeders' Cup Mile.

Lynch said Carotari will likely race next in Kentucky.

Keeneland in Lexington, Ky., will hold its spring meet from April 2 to April 23. Churchill Down in Louisville, Ky., will begin its spring meet on April 28.
