Dialed In's multiple graded stakes winner Gunnevera made a triumphant return from four-month layoff on Friday at Gulfstream Park, easily winning a 1 1/16-mile allowance by a half-dozen lengths in what was essentially a prep for his next graded stakes start.

Gunnevera had been off since running in the Dubai World Cup (G1) in late March, and has returned in top shape according to his trainer Antonio Sano.

“I’m so happy with my horse coming back after having the time off,” Sano said. “The rider, Edgard Zayas, said the horse is 100 percent.” 

Gunnevera looked nearly perfect in the dominating performance. Fifth and last through the first five furlongs, he moved for the lead at will on the final turn and pulled away effortlessly to get the distance in 1:42.03.

Sano outlined Gunnevera's plans for the next month.

“The horse will work here for the next two weeks and then, maybe August 24th or 25th, he will go to Saratoga (for the Grade 1 Whitney S. on Sept. 1),” Sano said. 

Gunnevera has competed at the top of the game since winning the Delta Jackpot S. (G3) at two. At three, he won the Fountain of Youth S. (G2) and Tangelo S. and placed in the Travers S. (G1) and Florida Derby (G1) and finished third in this year's Pegasus World Cup Inv. (G1). His earnings now stand at $2,951,800.

Gunnevera is Dialed In's leading earner this year and is one of his sire's nine stakes horses in 2018.
