From there, the bay Jack’s or Better Farm homebred pulled away with ease, hitting the wire a 5 3/4-length winner.
“I really wanted to win it,” said Gold. “I thought it would be his best performance to date, and everything went well.”
“I worked very hard with the horse,” added Sanchez. “The last time he won he surprised me, and I said ‘Okay, this time I will take him back, but not too far back.’ I tried to put him behind the speed and when he was ready, let him go. He’s unbelievable.”
Best Plan Yet, who is 3-2-0 in six starts with $300,960 in earnings, is the leading money winner for his sire. Hear No Evil's juveniles have earned nearly $500,000 in 2013, in the top five on the Florida Sires list.
