Speak Logistics and Carry a Big Stick, Joel
Interesting feature to start the Gulfstream Park racing week, an optional three-other-than going a mile and a sixteenth on dirt in the 9th race.
The interesting entrant that should provide value is Speak Logistics (6-1), making his 4-year-old debut while going turf to dirt. Plesa trainee was competitive on the Derby trail here last winter, owning good back figures, returning with excellent spacing, a profitable scenario in this time frame, and is picking up Joel Rosario. Positional speed and an outside slip should ensure a good stalking trip.
Taking Speak Logistics to win at 7-2 or greater, an exacta box with the never-been-better Golden Lad (5-2), and adding I'm Steppin It up (8-1) to the exotics mix.
