Servis Strikes at Gulfstream

Today’s feature race at Gulfstream would be a stakes at another track, a preliminary allowances going a mile on turf with some talented runners signed on.

If set for best, the Chad Brown returnee will be a tough out. Corporate Jungle (3-1) hasn’t been seen since his maiden breaker at Saratoga, earning a clearly best performance figure at today’s trip. He’s been training purposefully at Palm Meadows and Brown is profitable with maiden-breaking returnees.

The interesting horse, however, is Exclusive Strike, at an inflated early line of 10-1. Not the most fashionable of horses, he owns an excellent record at the distance and Servis is a profitable 27% effective on turf lifetime, a worthy record, indeed. He had no chance in his rough-trip GP return and switches to Rocco, who’s been riding at a good percentage this meet.

Taking Exclusive Strike to win at 5-1 or greater and boxing him in the exacta with the Brown trainee.
