Just Say Yes
Today's Gulfstream Park feature is a gateful of hard-hitting turf sprinters going 5 furlongs. Did we mention competitive? Well, it's that, too.
A study of the Energy Figures indicates that four members of the field have the best chance to succeed, But we're not taking Don't Say No (7-2) is 37% likely to score first time off the Jamie Ness claim, which certainly doesn't hurt, but rather because he has a few more variables working for him.
Such as the fact that the 6YO gelding is still relatively fresh, fits the speedy race shape with his late kick, and is nicely positioned outside with Castellano in the boot. Last time he came rolling too late; not today.
Taking Don't Say No to win at 5-2 or greater, and keying him first and second with Gibson (6-1), picking up Johnny, Tiz In Court (6-1), a recent Iadisernia claim, and super-sharp Starship Wildcat (4-1).
