A Winning Legacy


Today's Gulfstream feature primarily is battle of two classy returnees from lengthy layoffs, Clearly Delta Bluesman (7-2) and Tiger Blood (5-2) have had their issues, but their trainers both are adept with off-the-bench types. Wisely, they chose this spot because of the $50,000 claiming option.

Since both horses have early gas, we'll opt for a rival with recency and is turning back to 6F after chasing a lively pace going seven-eighths. Trainer Ralph Nicks has had many seconds at this meet but can turn the tables with formful turn-back Abounding Legacy (3-1); Edgard Zayas on the re-ride. All of 'Legacy's' lifetime wins have come in Hallandale.

Taking Abounding Legacy to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the speedy returnees.
