Small Value in Gulf’s Little Sub-Feature

Two features to choose from on today's Gulfstream card and since one features the lkelihood of a heavy favorite in the 11-furlong turf race, we'll opt for the secondary allowances/optional claimer where we beleive we have a very reasonable chance to beat the undefeated early line favorite.

After breaking through two starts back in a two-turn mile, Majestic Maria (3-1) returned with a good figure Reversal on the Equiform scale, showing continued good development and improving condition. Today she's back around two turns, drew the rail, is working crisply and Castellano is taking a return call. The Maria's Mon filly has already proven she can stalk from close range and kick home, which is what we're asking her to do here.

Taking Majestic Maria to win at 2-1 or greater and key boxing her in multples with undefeated Jump Up (5-2), top figure ship-in Rock The Moon (4-1) and the sharp Differentiate (6-1).

Running Totals: (997) 309-200-142 Total Dollar Return: $2,130.70 [win selections only]
