G’s TURN Finishes Runner-up in His Second Blacktype Stakes
A fast-closing runner-up in the $75,000 El Joven S. as a juvenile last year, G’s TURN put in a game effort to finish runner-up this time in the Black Gold Overnight S. at Fair Grounds. The second blacktype stakes horse in 2018 for ALTERNATION prompted the pace around the first turn and took the lead midway on the backstretch. The 3-year-old colt from his sire’s first crop continued to lead around the far turn and heading into the stretch and continued to run on to the wire racing a mile on the turf. G’s TURN has now finished first or second in three of his last four starts, including a 6 1/2-length Maiden Special Weight tally on the dirt in his seasonal debut (pictured). Lifetime record: 10-1-3-2, $62,845. O-Tom Galvin. B-Ed Few. T-Patricia West.
