Gulfstream Park West Fifth Race. Post time: 2:33 ET
3 – Venezuelan Hug (5-1)
Was no threat in the Belmont Derby-G1 last month but is much more realistically spotted today in this Florida-bred middle distance turf affair at Gulfstream Park West that promises a favorable race flow to compliment his closing style. The son of Constitution prefers patient handling and in a field loaded with pace-types the D. Gargan-trained 3-year-old should have every chance to produce a winning late kick. At 5-1 on the morning line, he’ll offer wagering value in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
Woodbine Eighth Race. Post Time: 4:58 ET
1 – Field Pass (2-1)
Exits a series of much tougher races and today faces a group his best can handle in this year’s edition of the Ontario Derby-G3. A graded stakes winner in his only prior outing over a synthetic surface, the son of Lemon Drop Kid is favorably drawn on the rail and projects to enjoy an ideal ground-saving, pace-stalking trip. With speed figures good enough to win, he’s the logical top pick and is worth a play at or near his morning line of 2-1.
