The Gulfstream Park Pick 5 press release:

The $1 million Curlin Florida Derby (G1) presented by Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms at Xalapa will feature a rematch between 2023 2-year-old champion Fierceness and undefeated Hades to close out a stellar afternoon of Thoroughbred racing Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

The 73rd running of the Curlin Florida Derby, a tradition-rich Triple Crown prep for 3-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles, will headline a 14-race program with 10 stakes, five graded, worth $2.425 million. First-race post time is set for 11:30 a.m.

The Curlin Florida Derby, which has produced the winners of 59 Triple Crown races from 46 starters since 1952, will be renewed as Race 14. There will be a $750,000 guaranteed pool for the Late Pick 5 (Races 10-14).

Joe Orseno-trained Hades is set to make a bid to defeat Todd Pletcher-trained Fierceness for a second time following his front-running two-length victory in the Feb. 3 Holy Bull (G3), in which Fierceness finished third following a troubled start. With so much at money at stake in the multi-race wagers, bettors may be wary to just include just those two high-profile entrants. Shug McGaughey-trained Conquest Warrior, a highly regarded two-time winner during the Championship Meet, is likely to be included on many tickets.

The $150,000 Orchid (G3), a 1 ½-mile turf stakes for older fillies and mares, will kick off the Late Pick 5 in Race 10. A deep field of eight includes Pletcher-trained Surprisingly, who finished second in the Pegasus World Cup Filly & Mare Turf Invitational (G2); Brendan Walsh-trained R Calli Kim, the winner of five of her last six starts who is coming off a victory in the March 2 The Very One (G3); and Chad Brown-trained McKulick, a multiple graded-stakes winner coming off a subpar effort in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (G1) at Santa Anita.

Michael Yates-trained Fiona’s Magic and Ian Wilkes-trained Into Champagne will engage in a rematch in the $250,000 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) in Race 11, the first leg of the Late Pick 4. The 1 1/16-mile Gulfstream Park Oaks, the final local prep for the May 3 Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs, drew a field of nine 3-year-old fillies.  Fiona’s Magic set the pace in the March 2 Davona Dale (G2) and held off previously undefeated Into Champagne by a half-length.

A talent-laden nine-horse Oaks field also includes Chad Brown-trained Ways and Means, who will open 2024 season after winning her debut by 12 ¾ lengths and finishing a close second in the Spinaway (G1) at Saratoga last summer, and Mark Hennig-trained Gun Song, a daughter of Gun Runner who is coming off a dominating 5 ¾-length romp in a Gulfstream optional claiming allowance.

The Gulfstream Park Oaks will be followed in Race 12 by the $150,000 Sand Springs, in which Brown-trained Grade 1 stakes winner Marketsegmentation is scheduled to make her 2024 debut. The 5-year-old daughter of American Pharoah will make her first start since finishing fourth in the July 15 Diana (G1) at Saratoga in the 1 1/16-mile turf stakes for older fillies and mares. Todd Pletcher-trained Cairo Consort, a Grade 1-placed graded-stakes winner, and Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained Angel Nadeshiko, who captured the Robert J. Frankel (G3) at Santa Anita in December, are also entered in the Sand Springs.

Pletcher-trained Never Surprised, runner-up in the 2022 Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational (G1) is scheduled to make his second start off a long layoff in a field of 11 assembled for the $150,000 Appleton, a mile turf stakes for older horses carded as Race 13. McGaughey-trained Smokin’ T, winner of the River City (G2) at Churchill last fall, is slated to make his second start of 2024 in the 72nd running of the Appleton.
