A New Yorker that won in California in his last race, his first time out of the home state. Now he heads to Florida and faces the big boys. It is setting up as a three-horse race. Point of Entry is a nice animal. Animal Kingdom is a Derby winner. Unbridled Command is rock steady.
The Turf Stakes:
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Unbridled Command has won his last five starts including the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby. But despite such an imposing resume, the talented turf specialist figures to play not only second but third fiddle to Animal Kingdom and Point of Entry in Saturday’s Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap.
Unbridled Command quietly rose to the top of the 3-year-old turf division during the second half of 2012, coming out of New York-bred allowance races to win both the Grade 3 Saranac and the Hollywood Derby against open company during the latter part of the year.

Wright’s 5-year-old Ultimate Eagle invading from California, Bourbon Lane Stable and Wayne Lynn’s 4-year-old Bourbon Courage flown in from New Orleans and Preston Stable’s 7-year-old Flat Out, the 3-1 morning line favorite, making his first start since finishing third in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.
The Donn is one of five stakes races on Saturday's program at Gulfstream. The 12-race program also includes the $300,000 Kitten's Joy Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap featuring 2011 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Animal Kingdom and the multiple Grade I winning Point of Entry.
