Tropical Racing Partnership Off And Running With Busy Weekend

Tropical Racing is gearing up for an important three days of action with four horses scheduled to go to the post, including three runners at Gulfstream Park and one at Finger Lakes on three consecutive afternoons, beginning Friday and concluding on Sunday.

“When we began Tropical Racing one of our goals was to be an active presence in the races on a regular basis,” said managing partner Troy Levy. “Our focus is on establishing ourselves as an innovative partnership that is not only regularly active at the races, but to develop horses to compete at the highest levels of the sport. We are proud to have starters on three straight days while we continue to introduce our program to those interested in getting involved in racing, along with established owners looking to diversify their equine portfolio.”

On Friday, Don’t Noc It carries the Tropical colors in the ninth race at Gulfstream from post two in a full-field of 12 starters.

A son of Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver, this 3-year-old gelding is eligible to improve and trainer Chuck Simon is very optimistic about his chances in this spot.

“He was eligible for a shot on the main track when his last race was moved from turf to dirt,” said Simon. “Although it wasn’t his best effort, it was a learning experience. He was a very competitive fourth two starts back on the grass and with any added improvement on that effort he should be very live in this race.”

On Saturday, Tropicality makes her career debut in the eighth-race against maiden special weight company in a race restricted to Florida-bred fillies going six furlongs on the main track; while Frosty The Dragon runs in the fifth against New York-bred maiden special weight company at Finger Lakes coming off two career races, a runner-up effort at Gulfstream Park West last October followed by a second-place finish on Aug. 28 in his 3-year-old debut.

Trainer Chuck Simon is very optimistic on the potential of Tropicality. “Being by a sire known for producing turf sprinters, we originally thought grass was in her future. Since the day she arrived at the barn she has been a pleasure to train and she is such an effortless mover over the main track, we think this is the ideal place to begin her career. She is quite precocious and talented; she gives the impression she could mature into any type of racehorse.”

On Sunday, Tropical Runnings heads to the post in the fifth against maiden special weight company going 7 1/2 furlongs on the turf.

“Her first race was a true learning experience, as she hit the gate at the start before making a credible late run,” said Simon. “Being by Travers winner Stay Thirsty, she is expected to improve now that she has experience. Based on her breeding and being out of a mare by strong grass influence Rock Hard Ten we believe this is the right spot for her to show her true ability.”
