Once again, this weeks Horse Racing Race of the Week comes from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Fla. as we look at one of the more prestigious races for older horses in the 2013 Donn Handicap. The Donn, which is run at 9 furlongs and carries a $500,000 purse, looks wide open on paper to me as 7 year old Flat Out, 8 year old Pool Play, the streaking Csaba and Take Charge Indy, who is on the comeback trail, are all scheduled to compete.
Run every year since 1959, the Donn boasts past winners such as Gun Bow (1965), the mighty Forego (1974), Foolish Pleasure (1976), eventual super sire Deputy Minister (1983), Cryptoclearance (1989), the great Cigar, who won back to backers (1995 and 1996), the gorgeous Formal Gold (1997), Skip Away (1998), the world beater Invasor (2007), the speedy and very handsome Quality Road (2010) and last years winner Hymn Book.
