Florida Derby Stakes Races

 Great day of racing in the sunshine state today as the showdown in the Florida Derby is finally apon us! Lets start with the undercard stakes

R5 The Skip Away stakes looks like Valids race to lose, but i really love Team Colors today and goibg forward in the older dirt division. He could be a major player. 1-5-6

R7 The Florida Oaks. Paola Queen interests me a lot, love the stretch from 7f to this and he breeding says she’ll love it. Great rider switch to Castellano and looked good in her last race. Off The Tracks will be tough but will be overbet. Not for me 1-7-5

R8 The Appleton. Long on Value likes this course and distance and should be tighter second time back for Mott/Lezcano. Im not giving up on All Included, I dont think he wanted to go that far in his last and this might be his best distance. 4-1-6

R10 The Sir Shackleton. Anchor Down might not have wanted to go the mile last time and cuts back to 7f which i think is ideal for him. Shown some real nice works for this since his last race. Squadron A dropped Saez in his last when Saez tried to fit into a hole that wasnt there. It was baffeling to me as he was full of run and could have easily gone around to win. Should be tough late. 6-4-5

R11 The Orchid is a wide open race. I landed on Phot Call here. She had the impossible task of chasing Tepin in her last and I think she wants to go longer which is what she gets here. Suffused will be tough if ready off the bench for Mott/Juddmonte. 4-3-1

R12 The Honey Fox is also wide open but i found the Favorites tough again. Lady Lara wasbt going to beat Tepin in her last and had to be closer to the pace in that race, shouls be able to sit and make one run here with more pace signed on. Tammythetorpedo has won 2 straight here but agaisnt lesser. 6-5-4

R13 The Pan American. Wake forest goes first time for Chad Brown and word is this horse is the real deal. Very excited to see him run today. Jay Gatsby could be a longshot to watch for. Breeding says he’ll love the the distance and can sit close and pounce. Dangerous. 7-2-1

R14 The Florida Derby. Finally the main event. The showdown we’ve all been waiting for. Im taking Mohaymen here. Hes already run 2 big races on this track and has won at the 1 1/8 distance in the Remson. I dont think Nyquist wants to go this far. He was getting gained on at the end of the Juvenille and now hes flying across country for this test. Great horse just dont think today is his day. 9-4-3
