Beast Of Bourbon Edges Tiz Dynamic On Golden Gate Fields Turf
Beast of Bourbon and Tiz Dynamic, the two favorites, staged their own match race in the $31,000 turf feature at Golden Gate Fields Saturday.
Beast of Bourbon broke on top and led Tiz Dynamic passing the grandstand the first time but then surrendered the lead to his rival on the backstretch. Receiving a strong and heady ride by Juan Hernandez, Beast of Bourbon re-rallied down the stretch and got up in the late stages to prevail by a half-length in the one-mile allowance heat.
Beast of Bourbon, trained by Bill McLean, clocked a time of 1:36.68 and paid $5.40 as the
8-5 second choice in the betting. Tiz Dynamic, the 3-2 favorite ridden by Russell Baze, finished 3 1/2 lengths clear of Eagle Screams.
Beast of Bourbon is a 4-year-old gelding who excels on the Golden Gate Fields lawn. In seven trips over the layout, Beast of Bourbon has four wins, a second and a third.
Claimed by McLean for $40,000 in May, Beast of Bourbon has two wins in four starts for the trainer they call “The Mate.” McLean owns Beast of Bourbon with several partners and the group saw their charge earn $18,600 for Saturday’s victory.
Beast of Bourbon has eight victories, four seconds and two thirds in 20 career starts and $167,440 in earnings.
