Starlight, Star Bright?


Today's Gulfstream feature is the Savannah Jane, a 12-furlong marathon for fillies and mares on the turf. Races like these turn into "rider's races" and all the best are in here so dynamics will be key.

It's not a race in which I'd be willing to take a short price since reading the pace scenario vs class at the distance is a tough assigment. Cay Dancer (2-1) is a logical favorite and most probable winner. She has the trainer (Chad Brown), rider (Javier), has class experience and tactical speed.

We're going with Indian Starlight (6-1), moving up in class but with speed, pole position, the hot-riding Lezcano and with a trainer, Jane Cibelli, who is 22% effective with potential repeaters.

Taking Indian Starlight to win at 5-1 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.

Taking a Shot at Gulfstream


If it's a three year old maiden or allowances at Gulfstream this time of year, it's easy to surmise that Todd Pletcher has the horse to beat. And that's the case today with Battery (6-5) and partner Javier Castellano. But we're going to try to upset him with Tampa shipper One More Shot (7-2).

A lean and leggy son of Trappe Shot, colt was most impressive beating his even money rival in fast time by open lengths while eased at the wire then continued to gallop out way ahead of the field. The favorite is a proven commodity, One More Shot has better spacing and great upside.

Taking One More hot to win at 5-2 or more and an exacta box with the fave.

Castor Looking Slick in GP Turf Feature


Today's Gulfstream feature is a preliminary allowances/optional going 7-1/2 furlongs on the turf, and if Castor (4-1) runs back to her most recent course win she figures to advance.

Forced to race very wide throughout, she was compelled to make a premature move, relaxed briefly, then drove clear under stiff handling, showing heart and class. She laid her body down and got there. With a bit of a softer trip, she can make an effective late run once again.

Taking Castor to win at 5-2 or greater and considering exactas using Summer Reading (9-5) and Fly Girl (15-1).
