First-crop 2YO G’S TURN Rallies for Runner-Up in El Joven S.
Having placed in Maiden Special Weights in his first two starts, G’S TURN made his fourth start in a stakes, his second try at this level, and rallied from far back to finish runner-up in the $75,000 El Joven S., just 1 1/4 lengths back of the win. The 2-year-old colt from the first crop of ALTERNATION was nearly 11 lengths back after the first half-mile in this 11-horse field going one mile on the turf at Retama Park. He continued to edge closer to the frontend around the trun, then split horses in the stretch and finished with good effort. In his third career start, G’S TURN was just three lengths off the win in the Sunday Silence S. at Louisiana Downs, finishing fifth. Lifetime record: 4-0-1-2, $21,365. O-Tom Galvin. B-Ed Few.
