Saturday 14th – Gulfstream Park NOT the race of the day (R3)

There are two feature races at Gulfstream Park today and neither I found very interesting so changing it up today and will go to Race 3 a MSW going 1M on Turf for the girls 4YO and up.  If you are reading this you more than likely do not care that I did not write up the feature race.  Lets face it, you are likely only reading this because you could not remember the website to browse the JK Collection so a couple wrong clicks and you ended up here wondering who the BEEP is this guy.

1          Empress at War – She has ran decent races and took money in every start but will need to improve tremendously here.

2 (A)    Expand the Map – Her two races at AQ she was only the lead and dug in to be nailed late.  In her last she was in tight at rail and put away her rival while the winner went by outside, then galloped out back by the winner thru the turn.   There is some other pace in here but she will be on the lead unless Irad lets another go by choice.

3          Sinfiltre        3rd Start for Pletcher and gets Turf for the 1st time after running a nice race on the Tapeta.   Irad moves to the 2 is enough for me to downgrade, but doing something new for the 1st time always a possibility.

4          Golden Belief –  0 for 7 and overmatched today.

5          War Princess makes her second start for Pletcher, ran an ok debut just seemed to go through the motions that day and came up flat in lane.  Did gallop out well and should improve

6  (A)   Chiromante – Has showed a lot of talent with some flaws, Her debut walked out of the gate made a big move through the turn getting carried out 6W off, shifted out late 8th pole gaining and surging at the wire while hanging on left lead and lugging.   Her 2nd start unhurried at back of the field she was 10 back entering turn moving up in hand at rail tip out 4/5B when asked for more big responses and should have went by for the win, left lead was an issue again and Jose had to let off the throttle at wire.    June Layoff and Lead issue is a concern, Walsh puts blinkers on and goes to Tyler.  Will be my top pick with some reservations.

7  (B)    Lute Player –  I would not leave this one off your multi-race tickets.  Third Start for Chad Turf Routing in last 5 years in MSW   31%.      Same scenario but first time on the Turf   3 wins and 3 seconds in the 6 who meet that criteria.

8          Arroblue    – She has showed some talent making up a lot of ground in her debut and her KY Downs Race she walked out of the gate moved up to the field in hand, was blocked the entire turn.   Jose never asked this one a step until 8th pole she responded well gaining and galloped out nicely that day.   The try at Keeneland she made an early move wide and just ran of gas going trying to get a mile and 1/8.  I expect her to outrun her odds.

9         Pimenova – 0 for 5 and will need to find softer company than these to graduate.

I will thread lightly given some improving types in here.

Top Selection – 6  Chiromante      Alternate – Expand the Map

Win Wager on the 6 hoping for 5/2, if she takes no money might turn me away.    Saver Wager –   Exacta  2 over the 6, will look at odds and Exacta Probable pushed a bunch of buttons and figure out the math.
