Blazing a Trail
Today's Gulfstream Park feature is the always entertaining G2 Ft. Lauderdale Stakes featuring, what else, and Todd Pletcher-trained favorite. Only today, we're not buying into Dominus (3-1). The firm GP ground will help his chances, but the pacefigures to be a lot more honest than the one he encountered in Saratoga's Bernard Baruch last summer.
Meanwhile, while Dominus was taking advantage, Sky Blazer (10-1) was pace compromised in that event. Back at GP, where she's 2-for-3, she's been training right along and picks up Joel Rosario. She'd be fair odds at half her early line quote.
Taking Sky Blazer to win at 5-1 or greater and key boxing him exactas with course loving Nikki's Sandcastle (5-1) and tough tripping Big Blue Kitten (6-1).
