Fair Grounds – Fifth Race – Post time: 1:13 CT

5-Koolhaus (9/2)

Sophomore maiden was given a nice educational run in his debut vs. similar last month and should be much more serious today after finishing full of run to be third and then galloping out far in front. Purchased as a weanling for $600,000, the son of Nyquist is very well regarded by the B. Cox barn and with two easy breezes since raced and the positive jockey switch to F. Geroux, this Triple Crown nominated colt looks ready to break his maiden and then go on to bigger and better things  At anywhere close to his morning line of 9/2, he’s worth playing enthusiastically in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Gulfstream Park – Sixth Race – Post time: 2:37 ET

2-Bagboss (5-1)

This first-time starter is bred for intense speed on both sides of his pedigree and has been impressive in a series of breezing workouts leading up to this five and one-half furlong main track dash for 3-year-olds. The son of Speightstown appears fit and ready for a major effort, though the more experienced Jeebar - the morning line favorite at 2-1 – should prove to be quite formidable.  At 5-1 on the morning line, Bagboss will offer good value, so we’ll go with the better price on top and hope the B. Walsh-trained colt breaks well and performs up to expectations.
