Lightning Strikes in Gulf Feature

Typically open, multi-condition turf race going 7-1/2 furlong in the Gulfstream turf feature. We'll TRY to find some value.

Thoristic (6-1) lost ground at a critical juncture on the far turn last out now turns back to his best trip at which he 2-for-5 but 1-for-15 doing anything else. Further, he's aided by the race shape, using his tactical speed and kick, if the rider switch to Saez pays the dividends we expect.

Fair odds would be anywhere from 4-1 to 5-1.

Taking Thoristic to win, key boxing exactas with Two Step Time (4-1) and Salute The Colonel (3-1), and adding Charlie Mops (5-2) and Mai Ty One On (12-1) to the super-exotics mix.
