HORSE RACING-BARBADOS-Joseph takes share of lead at Gulfstream.


Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr produced only a single winner at Gulfstream Park here Saturday but it was enough for him to pull level with Todd Pletcher at the top of the standings.

The Barbadian, who trailed by as much as four wins last week, sent out 3-1 choice Yodel E A Who, who collared the four-year-old and upwards by 5-A1/2 lengths in a 6-A1/2 furlong contest in a time of one minute, 16:30 seconds.

Joseph and Pletcher are now tied on 21 wins in the season which got underway April 2 and wraps September 27.

Michael Maker lies third on 15 wins with Antonio Sano one back in fourth.

The four-horse field sprinted from the gates to line up across the track before Victor Lebron put Yodel E A Who's head in front down along the rails, to reach the quarter mile in 22.62 seconds.
