GOLD SPEED GO BREAKS FAIRWAY MAGIC’S WIN STREAK, BEGINS ONE OF HIS OWN WITH REMINGTON PARK FEATURE VICTORY
Gold Speed Go had to dig in at the wire to hold off Fairway Magic in the featured allowance race Friday night at Remington Park. He did just that and managed to end the three-race win streak of his foe.
Gold Speed Go, at 7-1 odds, started a skein of his own with his second consecutive trip to the Remington Park winner’s circle. The 3-year-old gelded son of Goldencents from the Latent Heat mare Jamaican Smoke went wire-to-wire in the 6-1/2 furlongs sprint for second-level allowance horses. Stubborn to the end, Gold Speed Go held off Fairway Magic (2-1) by three-quarters of a length.
Fairway Magic had won three races in a row at Remington Park prior to this loss. He finished 1-1/2 lengths ahead of third-place Special Reserve (28-1). Fast Breakin Cash, the even-money favorite could do no better than fourth.
Lane Luzzi put Gold Speed Go on the lead and set fractions of :22.75 for the first quarter-mile; :45.56 for the half-mile; 1:09.91 for six furlongs before stopping clock in 1:16.31 over the fast track. He paid $16.60 to win, $7.60 to place and $4.80 to show across the board.
Gold Speed Go completed a late 50-cent Primetime Pick 4 payout of $1,050.50. The first three legs of that wager included Authentic Justice in the sixth race ($13.20 to win), Algebra ($8.80) in the seventh, and Humor Controller ($7.40) in the eighth.
Luzzi rode Gold Speed Go for owner Speed Racing 2018 of Cibolo, Texas, and trainer Danny Pish. Luzzi and Pish combined for two wins together on Friday night, in two of the last three races. They also won with Algebra in the seventh. Gold Speed Go took home $18,045 for his share of the $30,500 purse and improves to nine starts, four wins, and two thirds for $71,801 in lifetime earnings. Three of his four career wins have taken place this season at Remington Park. He was bred in Kentucky by Spendthrift Farm.
