First Dude Gains 31st Winner, Holds 5-Up Lead
Published: Wednesday, June 17, 2020

First Dude retained his five-up winners' lead on Florida's general sire list when Queens Dude became his 31st runner to make it to the winner's circle since Jan. 1.

With Alex Gonzalez contributing a heads-up ride, the 4-year-old gelding broke running from the No. 6 post in the 5 1/2-furlong race, and quickly settled in third place, right off the flanks of the two leaders. Gonzalez let him out with a three-wide move coming to the turn, and Queens Dude was in front by the time they straightened out in the stretch. Racing well out from the rail down the lane, he held off the only two challengers and prevailed by one length.

Queens Dude paid $4.60 as favorite and First Dude's progeny earnings for the season jumped to $870,386, second best among Florida stallions.
