Of a Revolution Emerges as Future Star at Gulfstream

Nov 13, 2021
‘Drain the Clock Jr.’ Upstages 1-5 Simplification
Sunday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $600,000

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – A future star quite likely emerged from Saturday’s Race 3 feature at Gulfstream Park, just not the one the betting public had expected to dominate the optional claiming allowance for 2-year-olds.

Bassett Stables’ Of a Revolution overcame a slow start while coming off a five-month layoff to sweep to an impressive victory, prevailing over a group of promising rivals, including well-beaten 1-5 favorite Simplification.

“To be honest with you, that’s the horse we think he is. It was not the kind of race you want to come back in – it’s almost a stake – but we think highly off him,” trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. said. “He broke slow. He missed the break. Most horses don’t even hit the board after that. He just showed a different dimension. We call him Drain the Clock Jr.”

Joseph-trained Drain the Clock Jr., like Of a Revolution, is a chestnut son of Maclean’s Music who won his first two career starts. Drain the Clock went on to win this year’s Limehouse and the Swale (G3) at Gulfstream, the Bay Shore (G3) at Aqueduct and the Woody Stephens (G1) at Belmont.

Of a Revolution ($9.60) had been idle since capturing his debut at Gulfstream May 22. Sent to post at 3-5, he defeated Cajun’s Magic, who went on to break his maiden before winning the $100,000 FSS Dr. Fager and finishing second in both the $200,000 FSS Affirmed and the $400,000 FSS In Reality.

“He got sick on us. We were going to Saratoga with him, but he missed some time,” Joseph said. “It took us longer to get started back, but it was great to see him come back off the layoff like that.”

Of a Revolution trailed the field under Edgard Zayas, as four horses contested the pace along the backstretch, including Simplification, a dazzling 16 ¾-length maiden winner three weeks ago, on the rail. Simplification, who was never able to shake clear of his outside rivals, came up short in the stretch as Of a Revolution drew away to a 2 ½-length victory following a four-wide sweep on the turn. Summary, who contested the pace under Paco Lopez, held second, 2 ¾ lengths ahead of Simplification.

Of a Revolution, who ran six furlongs in 1:11.69, will be pointed to the Limehouse (Jan. 1) for his next start.

“He’s Drain the Clock Jr. I think we’re going to take the same road as Drain the Clock,” Joseph said.

Hall of Fame trainer Mark Casse unveiled a most promising daughter of Noble Bird in Saturday’s Race 6, a maiden special weight race for Florida-bred 2-year-old fillies. Gary Barber’s Strategic Bird ($18) broke quickly from the starting gate and romped to a powerful 12 ¾-length debut victory.

Strategic Bird ran 5 ½ furlongs in 1:04.35 after cutting half-mile fractions of 21.96 and 45.15 seconds under Edwin Gonzalez.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $600,000

Sunday’s 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $600,000 at Gulfstream Park, where the popular multi-race wager went unsolved Saturday for the 19th racing day following a $461,035.47 jackpot payoff Oct. 9.

The Rainbow 6 jackpot is paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Sunday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10, kicked off by a maiden special weight race for Florida-bred 2-year-olds. Todd Pletcher-trained So Determined, an $875,000 yearling purchase as the Keeneland September sale, is listed as the 8-5 favorite after overcoming a slow start from his rail post position to finish second in his debut Oct. 2 at Gulfstream.

In Race 7, a six-furlong optional claiming allowance for Florida-bred 3-year-olds and up, Michael Stidham-trained Uphold the Law is scheduled to make a return from a 7 ½-month layoff since his impressive debut victory at Gulfstream in March. Aubrey Maragh-trained Raise the Rent, who was privately purchased following his recent 2 ¾-length maiden score; and Ralph Nicks-trained Big Daddy Dave, a multiple stakes-placed son of Khozan who will make his first start in 13 months; are also prominent on the list of entries.

In Race 9, a mile optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds and up, Arindel’s Alonso is scheduled to make his first start since finishing second in the Smarty Jones (G2) at Parx Aug. 24.
