Top Racing, Global Thoroughbred and GDS Racing Stable’s Bodexpress is set to make his return journey to South Florida on Monday following his 11-1 upset victory in Friday’s $500,000 Clark Stakes (G1) at Churchill Downs.
“Everything is good,” said Gustavo Delgado Jr., the assistant to his father. “He’ll spend a few days in Ocala, Fla. before returning to Gulfstream Park West. Gulfstream Park is our home track. So, the likely next spot could be the ($3 million) Pegasus (G1).”
Bodexpress, most known for his antics in the 2019 Preakness Stakes, gave jockey Rafael Bejarano his first victory in the Clark.
“It means a lot to my career to win this race,” Bejarano said. “I spent many years at Churchill in the past and this was always a big race to win in the Fall Meet. I’m glad we were able to do so now that I’m back home in Kentucky.”
Bodexpress improved his overall record to 4-4-3 through 17 starts. The 4-year-old son of Bodemeister has now banked $694,600 in earnings.
