No Excuses


Sunday's Holy Bull featuring the return of Eclipse champion Hansen will get most of the attention today at Gulfstream Park and desevedly so. But it's the Grade 2 Forward Gal that figures to be more contentious with four of the six fillies having an excellent chance to get the money.

Broadway's Alibi is 8-5 on the early line but it's two other 3-year-old fillies, Sacristy (2-1) and Say A Novena (6-1), that are garnering the most publicity.

Resultantly, value might be available, especially since Broadway's Alibi has done nothing wrong in three career starts; an opening Compression Line followed by consecutive New Pace Tops including a top figure win over the surface at 6-1/2 furlongs and probably will be a higher price than her chances dictate.

The mini-stretchout, her tactical speed, kick, an outside draw, and Johnny Velazquez all augur well for a winning trip.

Taking Broadway's Alibi to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing herin exactas with her two rivals here.

Running Totals: (1015) 313-202-147 Total Dollar Return: $2,1567.80 [win selections only]
