The $100K Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint Stakes (G3) was won by LEINSTER, ridden by Luis Saez, for trainer George Arnold II, and for owner Amy E. Dunne.

LEINSTER broke on top and vied for the lead before submitting to HIGH CRIME and INTER MIAMI, who then led the field through a blazing opening quarter of 21.03! LEINSTER would take back to track the dueling front runners, and then swing 3-wide at the turn and reel them both in. HIGH CRIME was stubborn but gave way to finish second. HARRY'S ONTHELOOSE hugged the rail and ran up to finish third. The final time for the five furlong dash was :55.29, over a turf listed as Good.

LEINSTER paid $2.80 to win, $2.10 to place, and $2.10 show. He is by MAJESTIC WARRIOR out of VASSAR by ROYAL ACADEMY. He's now won four of his last five races, pushing his earnings to $764,971.

The $100K Gulfstream Park Sprint Stakes (G3) was won by MISCHEVIOUS ALEX, ridden by Irad Ortiz JR., trained by Saffie Joseph Jr., and owned by Cash is King LLC and LC Racing LLC.

At 1-9, MISCHEVIOUS ALEX broke well and ran amongst the leaders, who recorded a 22.45 opening quarter, a 44.87 half mile. The trio of MISCHEVIOUS ALEX, FROSTED GRACE, and CAJUN BROTHER were on the front end, duking it out for the lead. They'd hit the stretch together but MISCHEVIOUS ALEX's class was too much. He finds his best stride and pushes forward to win by almost three lengths at the wire. FROSTED GRACE came second, CAJUN BROTHER, third. The final time was 1:09.55 for the six furlongs on dirt, which was listed as Fast. 

MISCHEVIOUS ALEX paid $2.80 to win, and $2.10 to place. He is by INTO MISCHIEF out of WHITE PANTS NIGHT by SPEIGHTSTOWN. This win marks two in a row, pushing his earnings to $449,730.
