Jack and Jane Went Up to the Wickets

Today's featured 8th race at Gulfstream is a typically highly competitive 5F turf sprint with four or five viable contenders. Of those, we're most interested in Jane of All Trades (5-1).

Kiaran McLaughlin got off to a slow start at this stand but has heated up of late. In 'Jane,' he starts a filly making her 4YO debut off a recent dirt prep in which he never threatened, her first start since June.

This should be convenient in that the trainer is 28% effective in LAY-2 scenarios and profitable when going dirt to turf. Lezcano takes the re-ride off her comebacker--he's won aboard her on turf--but more interesting to note that she's 2-for-3 on this turf course, both wins at the distance, as she's 0-for-8 doing anything else.

Taking Jane of All Trades to win at 9-2 or greater and key-boxing her in money-positions in Dime Supers with gate bullet What a Party (12-1), promising turf sprinter Valderdina (5-1), Magic Mesa (3-1), from the hot barn of Pat Farro, the fast-when-right Taty's Gold (6-1), very well meant Lignite (4-1) and the longer uncoupled Wesley Ward's Bares Tripper (12-1).

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1455

Amount Wagered: $2,912 [to win only]
