Paddy O’Prado wins Palm Beach Stakes

Paddy O’Prado picked the perfect time to earn his first career

win Saturday in the $150,000 Palm Beach Stakes at Gulfstream

Park.

The 3-year-old colt changed his running style to take advantage

of a firm turf course that was favoring speed to win the top grass

race for sophomores in South Florida.

Ridden by Jesus Castanon and trained by Dale Romans, Paddy

O’Prado pulled clear from Dean’s Kitten by 2 1/2 lengths to return

$17.20 in 1:45.40. Favorite Bim Bam failed to match his winning

effort in the Hallandale Beach Stakes Feb. 7 and faded to

fifth.

Earlier on the card, Khancord Kid went wire-to-wire under jockey

Rajiv Maragh to win the filly half of the featured 3-year-old turf

stakes, the $150,000 Herecomesthebride Stakes.
