Fiscal (and physical) Fitness
Today's Gulfstream feature is a preliminary allowances/optional claimer for fillies and mares sprinting 6 furlongs and it poses the classic question of present form moving up to meet classier rivals. We understand that Fiscal Fitness (4-1) defeated restricted claimers in last but it is her strong internal Equiform figure that indicates she can make the mini-turnback here and handle tougher rivals because the effort came over this ground.
She moved up big time with the switch to the Hallandale strip and her trainer has been pushing all the right buttons, Bill Connelly winning with half of his six starters. Corey Lanerir, who rode her for the first time last out, takes the return call.
Taking Fiscal Fitness to repeat at 3-1 or greater and boxing her in the exacta with Angel Dreams (5-2) who's 3-for-18 lifetime but 2-for-2 on this racetrack.
