The Magic’s Back

Yet another interesting preliminary allowances as a turf feature at Gulfstream Park; older fillies and mares going 1-1/16th miles.

Easily could have gone in four or five different directions but this looks like a spot to seek out value and believe that Bringbackthemagic (6-1) will slip through the wagering cracks, given the presence of more than a few high profile outfits.

When last seen, the Stephen DiMauro-trained filly was compromised in a well graded turf mile over the course but finished up willingly, beaten a little over a length.

Stormy Atlantic gelding broke maiden at first asking, his lone start at today’s distance, and prior to his latest, was a very willing third in the longer Tropical Park Derby, his Calder finale.

With today’s place expected to be a little livelier, we’re looking for Juan Leyva to take advantage of the experience he gained on this colt last out. Mini-stretchout makes the difference.

Taking Bringbackthemagic to win at 9-2 or greater and key boxing him first and second in multiples with super sharp Grip Hands (4-1), strong finishing Liston (3-1) and fast working Sheppard import Utley (8-1).

Running Totals: (999) 309-201-142 Total Dollar Return: $2,130.70 [win selections only]
