Gulfstream Park – Fourth Race.  Post time: 1:26 ET

8-Dean’s List (3-1)

This Todd Pletcher-trained first time starter has trained like an extremely talented colt, one that could easily win at first asking in this competitive maiden sprint for juveniles.  In a pair of recent team workouts, the son of Speightstown was much the best without any need of urging before galloping out strongly and with plenty left.  From his cozy outside draw under Luis Saez, the WinStar homebred should have every chance to show his best stuff right off the bat and at 3-1 on the morning line deserves play in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Gulfstream Park – Seventh Race.  Post time: 2:58 PT

3-Touch Code (8-1)

Probably isn’t a quick type, which explains why trainer Bill Mott has decided to start him off in a one-turn mile, but this son of Honor Code acts like a colt with quality.  A half mile workout just three days ago over the local main track was visually quite pleasing, so although the stable has just average stats with the first-time starter angle this juvenile is a good athlete with fluid action and could easily turn up a live item.  With the barn’s “go to” rider Junior Alvarado taking the call, he’s worth a gamble at or near his morning line of 8-1.
