Gulfstream Park Race 8: Post: 3:40 ET
Once highly-regarded after winning his first two starts over the local main track like a potential Derby prospect last year, the son of Medaglia d’Oro went sour and was stopped on before returning in an extended sprint at this level last month. The B. Walsh-trained colt finished a non-threatening fifth, but didn’t break well, raced in traffic, and then found his best stride too late in a performance that was much better than the line will show. At 8-1 on the morning line, this lightly-raced colt offers lucrative value as a win play and rolling exotic single.
Gulfstream Park Race 13 – Post time: 6:12 ET
This recent debut winner looks like an extremely good prospect, one capable of making a successful leap from maiden to stakes competition. The Graham Motion-trained sophomore stalked the pace, drew away with complete authority when given her cue, earned a strong speed figure, and has trained impressively since that race. We’re expecting the daughter of Karakontie to produce a significant forward move, one that makes her capable of winning right back while offering excellent wagering value at 6-1 on the morning line.
