"Gourmet Dinner"

Steve Standridge trainer of Gourmet Dinner returns the Trippi colt to Florida and a conventional dirt surface  at Gulfstream Park for the Hoy Bull  Stakes (Grade 3). The California trip in which the colt ran 4th, in the Cashcall Futurity (Grade 1), was a disaster for Gourmet Dinner. I have never witness such a debacle as I had watching the paddock show in California. The race was held up for at least thirty minutes waiting for the eventual winner to have a shoe replaced. Gourmet Dinner also was bumped around in the race. When I spoke with Steve he seemed surprised that the officials allowed the race to be held up that long .Holy Bull Stakes (Grade 3)
