Gulfstream Mile ‘An Ideal Distance’ For Always Dreaming To Kick Off 2018 Campaign

Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming is expected to kick off his 2018 season in Saturday’s Gulfstream Park Mile on the Florida Derby undercard, according to drf.com. The 4-year-old son of Bodemeister has not raced since finishing ninth in the Travers on Aug. 26. He underwent treatment for stomach ulcers during a break away from the track, and returned in January to Pletcher’s string at Palm Beach Downs in Florida. Most recently, the colt breezed a bullet half-mile in :48.99.

“I was satisfied with his breeze on Saturday,” Pletcher said. “There are a lot of reasons why this race makes sense, including his success at Gulfstream and the fact a mile is kind of an ideal distance to start him back. I really like the scenario, and feel great about the way he has filled out and matured from 3 to 4.”

Also likely to start in the Gulfstream Mile is Irish War Cry.
