Quick Dividends


Today’s Gulfstream Park feature is the Grade 3 Hurricane Bertie for older fillies and mares sprinting the hybrid distance, and this renewal has drawn an unusual number of 6½- and 7-furlong specialists.

It has also attracted a barn change, owing to a private purchase by Frank Stronach after the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint in which Her Smile finished third. We’re taking her to return quick dividends under the care of new trainer Chad Brown.

It is rare when you see such a one schedule that never has missed a beat since she went into training for the new barn January 1. She has worked every 7 days without missing a beat, including a series of stamina building 5-furlong works, including three bullets.

There seems to be enough pace to suit her late-finish sprint style, she attacts Castellano and the outside post suits perfectly.

Taking Her Smile to win with no price restrictions and keying her in multiples with Belle of the Hall (7-2) and Funny Sunny (6-1).
