Plays for Gulfstream Feb 7

Coming off a great Saturday in Racing, filled with amazing performances, we now turn the page to Sundays racing…

Race 3

1-4-3   Dropping out of MSW LITTLE CHUCK should love the cut back to a mile and is now a gelding.  TEXAS TEA is an obvious contender, just missed at this level last out and should be tough right back.

Race 4

3-9-6   Off the turf in the 4th, where I think FAIRYTALE FINISH holds an advantage, Ran well in off the turf event last time and should get a good trip right off the pace. STREET LOU, debuts for Pletcher for 35k, which is never a good sign but shows good works and he can have them ready to fire first out.

Race 5

10-6-3   BOLD SUMMIT should be able to clear this field from the 10 post and a repeat of his last performance off the bench should get the job done here.  VEGAS STRIP showed promise out west and debuts on the east coast for Reade Baker.  RASTA RANT loves this track and distance and could get up for a share.

Race 6

8-1-5   DIVINE INTRIGUE drops from 30k to 16k and should find this group more to his liking.  Last workout shows he’s ready to roll.  SEUSS is also dropping, comes from way out of it, might have to much to do late. 

Race 7

8-9-3  PAPA PIG just missed last time at this level and should be tough back here, cutting back to 6f.  SOYOUTHINKURAROMEO ran second at this trip last out and should sit midpack before making his run.

Race 8

9-8-1   CASTOR comes in for Todd Pletcher with a series of serious works showing he’s ready for this test.  Loved his maiden breaker here and seems to be able to be placed wherever the pace dictates he be.  DESERT TUNE could run big at big odds off the layoff.  Albertrani has been hitting at a good % at this meet and this horse showed talent in his maiden win, breeding says turf should be no problem.  SILKY GIRL also looks tough for mott/lezcano who have made a good team as of recent

Race 9

8-3-6   Some good horses returning from layoffs in this one.  I’m leaning outside to THREE ALARM FIRE. He has routinely faced better horses and can run big fresh.  Albertrani knows him and he should be sittying back and trying to make one run.  SQUADRON A has the recency edge on the others having just run here, and ran well.  Will make things difficult for the top pick.  CHIPIT returns for Pletcher with some good works and should be ready to fire fresh.

Race 10

14-10-4  Purely on numbers, UNKNOWN has the edge and should be able to get good position stalking the lead from the outside post here.  She will have to catch STARSHIP MAIDEN, who should be on or close to the lead.  BABY ANTONELLA is dropping from 16k to 12500 and should find this easier for her.

Race 11

3-6-7   GUSTNADO h ultra consistent for Mott.  7.5f might have been a tad to short for him, and he should prefer this longer distance.  Will drop back and make one run at the leaders.  INIFINTE WISDOM, doesn’t seem to have much fight in him, had a lone lead last out, slow fractions, and didn’t put up much when two horses ran by in the stretch last out, might not have a long lead with the two outside of him today.  AMIGO will also be rolling late.

Race 12

4-6-9   CHATT HILLS should appreciate the cut back to 6f as he got a little tired late going 7 last out.  2 back HOWS MY GOLD ran at this level and made a good showing for herself, last time was in way over her head, but held her own. COOL TEARS should be better 2nd of an extended layoff.

Race 13

13-14-12   If he didn’t get bumped and the rider lost the irons, WINGED FURY may have won her last out maiden at AQU.  Chad gave her some e to compose herself, shows some good works, and the daughter of a G1 winner on both sides, should be ready to go here.  SWEET ELLA has a race undfer her belt at keeneland, running evenly to finish 6th, only beaten 2 lengths. GIADA VEGAS goes for Clement who excels on the turf with these types.
