On the Horizon – Gulfstream Park – Wednesday(January 18, 2023) – John Pinder

Late Pick 5 sequence:


Race 5 SELECTIONS:   5  –  1

# 5 News Break will be running second off the layoff for trainer Mike Maker.  Prior to his last start, this son of American Pharoah was a solid allowance company runner.  #1 Lookin At Roses will be looking to regain form after his last race was off a break as well.  It’s been a while since this gelding has run on the turf, but he has shown the ability to press and finish strong.

Race 6 SELECTIONS:   4  –  1

#4 No Action was claimed in her debut race back in November of last year.  Fifty-two days later she will be getting Lasix and making the first start for the new barn of Rohan Crichton, who is doing very well currently and has a positive ROI with first after the claim and first time Lasix runners.  #1 Megan Makin Money has very good speed early but has yet to be able to sustain it till the end of the race; today she will run second off the layoff and gets Lasix for the first time.

Race 7 SELECTIONS:   1  –  6  –  7

#1 Glass Star continues to improve after each start.  Last time out she was a close second, beaten by less than two lengths.  #6 Angelic Gal tired last time out against many of the same competitors that she will face again today; today she gets Lasix for the first time.  #7 Singing the Oldies will need to improve from a speed figure standpoint but is capable of doing just that. Making her first start for the new barn of Jeremiah O’Dwyer, Jose Ortiz picks up the mount.

Race 8 SELECTIONS:   1  –  5  –  8

#1 Makin My Move has not been to the races since October, when she ran her slowest speed figure for the past two years, but won the race.  She shows up in this spot after a month and a half of steady fast workouts.  #5 One Identity has shown very good speed on both the dirt and the All-Weather; today she tries the turf for the first time.  No reason to believe she can’t produce similar results; her Dam has produced a turf winner.  #8 Constitution Gal on the other hand, prefers the grass and should improve as she returns to that surface today.

Race 9 SELECTIONS:   3   –  9

#3 Rubysa is in great form for trainer Jose D’Angelo.  She won as a favorite last time out and drops slightly in class for this race.  #9 She’s So Pretty won at this level last time out and was claimed.  This ageless nine-year old continues to show toughness and consistency at this level.

Let’s make it happen!!!
