Dialed In’s multiple graded stakes winner Gunnevera returned to the races Sunday at Gulfstream Park in the $100,000 Tangelo S., coming away a five-length winner in his first race since the May 20 Preakness S. (G1).

Despite a four-wide trip around both turns in the 1 1/16-mile Tangelo, Gunnevera was in hand the entire way, with jockey Edgar Zayas looking back over his shoulder as he swept to the lead at the top of the stretch. With the race in hand, Zayat eased Gunnevera up late to coast under the finish line.

“He did it pretty easy as we expected. On the first turn Prince Tito was trying to take him a little outside. So I saved some ground. He was much the best. I was trying to stay out of trouble so I put him back on the outside and made one run,” Zayas said. “He did it pretty easy. Once he got to the stretch he fired up.”

“My horse is back 100 percent,” added trainer Antonio Sano. “The race was very easy for him today. He’s gained weight. He’s very happy. And now we’ll go to the Travers (G1, $1.25 million, on Aug. 26 at Saratoga).”

Gunnevera is now solely owned by Salomon del Valle, who recently bought co-owner’s Peacock Stables interest in the 3-year-old colt.

Sunday’s win upped Gunnevera’s earnings to $1,277,200. He is Dialed In’s leading lifetime earner and is one of six stakes winners this year for his sire, who ranks in the top 10 on the 2017 Second-Crop Sire list.
