Won’t You Let Me Take You On a Sea Queen?

Today's Gulfstream Park featured 9th race, a preliminary allowances at 1-1/16 miles scheduled on turf is interesting, even if rescheduled to the main track. (In that eventuality, we're going on record with Bird Maker to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Dame Dorothy and Comme Chez Soi)).

If the event goes as scheduled, we prefer Sea Queen even if she hasn't been seen since last summer at the Spa, where she won her debut under the same conditions--at this trip and around two turns.

Extremely well bred, Rosario takes the return call from Clement, aces with lengthy-absence returnees and when adding Lasix, a worthy 31% profit given that scenario. Her tactical speed figures to help overcome the wide draw which does have the benefit of adding potential value to off time odds.

Taking Sea Queen (4-1) to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with tough-tripping Cool Faith (3-1) and Market Magic (5-1) who appeared to need her recent turn and will appreciate today's added distance.
