Canadian Filly Looks Golden

Today’s Gulfstream Park feature, a preliminary allowance/optional claimer for three year old fillies going two turns is a beauty, drawing a big field with some really nice fillies. It won’t be easy but even a favorite could pay relatively well in this matchup.

There are two fillies dropping significantly in here; Miss Netta (3-1) with an excellent effort in the G1 Frizette then suffering through a very tough trip in the Juvenile Fillies in which she raced very creditably thereafter. She worked very well recently for Kiaran McLaughlin.

But Golden History (8-1) is working well, too, she reunites with winning stable rider Contreras and drops from two straight G2s with an excellent Equiform development pattern with an opening Compression Line, followed by a Reversal and a strong-finish try off very slow fractions, eliminating her chances. Looking for a rebound effort here.

Taking Golden History to win at 5-1 or greater and keying her first and second in exactas with Miss Netta and the very sharp Dancing Solo (4-1).

Running Totals: (998) 309-201-142 Total Dollar Return: $2,130.70 [win selections only]
