Gulfstream Park – Fifth Race – Post time: 1:24 ET
3-Full Court Press (8-1)
The William Mott-trained colt was given a run last month in his recent debut—a monster race taken by runaway winner Prevalence—and with that effort under his belt he’ll get serious today in this one turn mile maiden affair for 3-year-olds. The son of Dialed In was within range to the head of the lane but wasn’t knocked about while keeping to his task and winding up fourth, beaten nearly 16 lengths. He’s a much better colt than that line will show and today gets his chance to spring an upset at 8-1 on the morning line in a race that doesn’t offer nearly the amount of early speed he was forced to deal with first time out.
Gulfstream Park – Twelfth Race – Post time: 5:04 ET
Returns to the one-turn mile distance of her maiden win last fall and has looked extremely sharp in the a.m. while preparing for her sophomore debut in this year’s edition of the Davona Dale S.-G2. Narrowly missing when last seen in the Demoiselle S.-G2 in early December, the daughter of Curlin is strong on speed figures and has the good stalking style that makes her ideally suited for this elongated one-turn trip. From a barn that has strong stats with layoff runners and switching to Johnny V., she’ll offer excellent value at or near her morning line of 5-1.
