Gulfstream Park notes: Bourbon Courage will have to overcome longer odds and losing streak in Donn
Ever since he romped in his career debut two years ago at 15-1, Bourbon Courage has never been higher than 6-1 in 13 subsequent starts. That’s even as he competed with regularity in graded stakes and against such heavy-heads as Shackleford, Graydar, Will Take Charge, and Game On Dude.
Those tote prices have been a pretty fair gauge of his ability. But when Bourbon Courage goes postward Sunday in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park, it probably will be at his longest odds since his unveiling on Feb. 3, 2012, at Fair Grounds.
