The 'Boys' are back in town with win


Hallandale Beach, FL (Sports Network) - Odds-on favorite Boys At Tosconova made it two straight wins with a solid victory Friday at Gulfstream Park. The three-year-old colt easily defeated four challengers in a one-mile main track effort.

Ridden by Ramon Dominguez, Boys At Tosconova registered a one-length win over Where's Sterling while covering the eight-furlongs in 1:35.62 on a fast track. Nacho Friend finished third followed by Trust The Deputy and Ribo Bobo.

Sent off as the 7-10 favorite, Boys At Tosconova took the lead shortly after the start. The colt, trained by Rick Dutrow Jr., led by as many as four- lengths versus his four rivals.

Boys At Tosconova returned $3.40, $2.20 and $2.10. Where's Sterling paid $2.20 and $2.10, and Nacho Friend paid $2.10 to show.

Owned by Jay Em Ess Stable and partners, Boys At Tosconova earned $28,500 in only his third start of 2011. In seven career starts the colt has earned $628,360 with four wins.

Boys At Tosconova has never finished out of the money, including a victory in last year's Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga and being runner-up to Uncle Mo in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs.

The well regarded colt was unable to participate in this year's Triple Crown events due to ankle problems. He came back in October with a third-place result in an allowance race at Belmont Park. Boys At Tosconova won his second start back at Aqueduct last month.
