G’S TURN Romps by 6 1/2 in Maiden Special Weight Score

With three placings already under his belt, G’s TURN proved much the best and drew off to win a one mile Maiden Special Weight by 6 1/2 lengths. The first-crop 3-year-old colt by ALTERNATION raced up close from the start and dueled with another through the backstretch and around the far turn. Before they reached the top of the stretch, G’s TURN had shaken off his challenger and then pulled away through the stretch as the strong favorite at Delta Downs. In his 2-year-old debut, the 12th first-crop winner for his sire placed behind a next out stakes winner and also closed from last to finish runner-up in the $75,000 El Joven S., beaten only 1 1/4 lengths. Lifetime record: 7-1-1-2, $45,245. O-Tom Galvin. B-Ed Few. T-Timothy Thornton.
