The seventh race at Gulfstream Park yesterday produced a sharp 1-2 finish by Northwest Stud stallions Flashstorm and Gone Astray. Abounding Legacy, bred by Northwest, took up a stalking position in third in the $62,500 allowance claimer, moved three wide on the turn and was much the best heading home, scoring by nearly four lengths. The 4-year-old gelding was clocked in 1:24.02 for the seven furlongs and picked up a check for $27,000. Abounding Legacy boosted his earnings to $156,540 on a record of 4-4-2 in 13 starts. The runner-up was Bullet Gone Astray, who was content to cruise along in fifth place early, then uncorked a strong run through the stretch to get up for second and collect $9,560. The 3-year-old stakes-winner is 2-1-3 in 12 starts with earnings of $134,397 . . . Two days earlier at Gulfstream, Flash Jak, also bred by Northwest, scored a 2 1/-4-length victory racing seven furlongs under Edgard Zayas. The 4-year-old filly contested the pace from the inside, putting up fractions of :22.82, :45.50 and 1:10.52 before drawing off late en route to a final clocking of 1:23.89. It was her fifth career victory and her earnings jumped to $68,240.
