On the Horizon – Friday (February 12, 2021) – John Pinder

Late Pick 4 Sequence

Race 7: SELECTIONS:  12 – 2 – 7

#12 Whatmakessammyrun has shown in his prior starts that he can sit off a solid pace and come with strong close.  Experienced a little traffic last time out and with any improvement should be very competitive today.  #2 Safe Conduct has not been seen since Saratoga were in his last attempt before today, he broke his maiden impressively.  Trainer Phillip Serpe does not have a big barn but does a good job of placing his runners.  #7 Hot Blooded has a chance to score at a price based on his ability to control things upfront.  Gets Jaramillo in the irons, who prefers to put his runners on or near the front.

 

Race 8: SELECTIONS:  6 – 3

#6 Our Fantasy will be the morning line favorite and very well should be as she fits well at this level on this surface.  Her connections have attempted her on the turf many times in the past, but she flourishes on the dirt.  #3 Blueyed Princess will be our value play in this spot as many of the other runners are good but not great.  Shipping in from Tampa and only having one race under her belt, although be it a win, she closed well after a slow start going the same distance and surface as today’s contest.

 

Race 9: SELECTIONS:  8 – 10 – 5

#8 Sun Summers is a very consistent turf specialist for trainer Mike Maker, only off the board in 3 of her 13 lifetime starts, she gives it her all every time.  She should be poised to put in another good effort after just missing last time out, approximately 27 days ago.  #10 Lucky Polly is a 4 year-old filly trained by Mark Casse that returns to a slightly shorter distance.  Coming off a five month layoff we can anticipate that that Casse will have her ready to give it a good try.  #5 Miss Teheran ships in for trainer Chad Brown, who has not sent many of his runners to Gulfstream this meet.  This mare does not have the best record, but has shown flashes of her potential at higher class levels.

 

Race 10: SELECTIONS:  5 – 4- 10

#5 Flamingo Hawk is a well-bred son of Candy Ride that drops in class for Saffie Joseph.  3rd off the layoff coupled the with early speed that he has shown in the past, projects this one to be highly competitive in this spot.  #4 Will Take Control drops in class for trainer Steve Klesaris.  He has shown good early pace in both of his prior starts, increasing his speed figure progressively; retains Edgard Zayas in the saddle.  #10 Curve will be good price on the board;  started slow in his debut race and was unable to catch up to the hot pace.  Gets Lasix for the first time and gets some class relief.
