Fred Hooper Rematch in Gulfstream Park Mile


Speaker's Corner | Coglianese

Speaker's Corner (Street Sense) and Fearless (Ghostzapper), one-two across the line in the GIII Fred W. Hooper S. Jan. 29, face off again in Saturday's GII WinStar Gulfstream Park Mile S.

The highly regarded Godolphin homebred Speaker's Corner, second after setting the pace in the 1 1/8-mile Discovery S. at Aqueduct Nov. 27, turned back to a mile with a sharp, wire-to-wire tally under an aggressive ride from Junior Alvarado in the Hooper.

Fearless, four of six with two seconds in Hallandale, rallied from last of eight to finish a good second as the favorite in the Hooper. He previously posted a smart decision in the local GIII Harlan's Holiday S. Dec. 18.

“He's doing well. He usually does well here. He should be sitting on a big race,” trainer Todd Pletcher said. “I wish it were a little further, but it's the option we have.”

Trainer Saffie Joseph, Jr. will saddle the trio of impressive Jan. 7 optional claiming comeback winner and 'TDN Rising Star' Collaborate (Into Mischief), last out Hudson H. Oct. 30 winner Ny Traffic (Cross Traffic) and Hooper fourth Girolamo's Attack (Girolamo).
