Fortified has been entered to run this Saturday, July 17th at Gulfstream Park Racetrack in Hallandale Beach, Florida. It will be his third start and first on dirt. The race is a Maiden Special Weight for three year old's and up going 1 mile on dirt for a purse of $52,000. It israce #3 on the card and Fortified is post #6 in a field of 7 horses and has been given an 8/1 ML odds. Jockey Wilmer Garcia will be in the irons. Wilmer rode Fortified in his breeze last week and is familiar with the colt. There are some nice pedigreed horses in this race. If we put a line through his questionable last start and he moves up on dirt he will fit perfectly in the mix here. Trainer Kent Sweezey is happy with how he has been training and moving. We are hopeful he will continue to the finish and give us a competitive effort. Post time for the race is 1:30 PM EST and can be seen on TVG and the live race feed from GSP.
