Jack’s Got His Swagger Back

Today's Gulfstream feature is a NW3 optional claiming first stakes class older horses going a flat mile. It marks the return of the talented Cool Blue And Red Hot (3-1), making first first start since last year's Hal's Hope, and Swagger Jack (3-1), which, like the choice, was scratched from this year's Hal's Hope for this more logical spot.

Swagger Jack has recency, comes off a lifetime best performance and, despite returning on relatively short rest, has worked twice in the interim, both bullet blowouts. Instead of the rail, which he drew on Sunday, he shifts outside in a shoart field and gets a switch to Johnny, who will put his mount in this throughout.

Taking SwaggerJack to win at 2-1 or greater, an exacta box with his rival here, and adding Easter Gift (2-1), making his first start for Chad Brown as a newly turned 4-year-old.
