Let’s Go Stable’s Harpoon
(c, 2, Tapit
--Christmas Star, by Star de Naskra) bounded home a five-length winner at Gulfstream Thursday. The gray colt was second in three previous outings, most recently at Aqueduct Nov. 16, and was getting blinkers off for this fourth start. The 4-5 favorite broke awkwardly, but was straightened out and was close to the lead early before settling off the pace while racing three wide behind fractions of :23.29 and :46.15. He rushed up to take the lead while five wide on the turn and surged clear despite running greenly down the lane, completing the mile in 1:37.10. Commandment (Sky Mesa) was second and Daring David (Strong Contender) was third. Lifetime Record: 4-1-3-0, $73,200. VIDEO
