Silent Fright, Holy Flight
In today's Gulfstream feature, an optional allowances for fillies and mares sprinting 5-1/2 furlongs, the question is does one favor the distance specialist Sonja's Angel (5-2), or the surface lover, Silent Fright (3-1), who also is coming off nearly a year's absence. We love a challenge.
And we also like when Kiaran McLaughlin is the one calling the shots with the long layup, and the fact that Joe Bravo, who did so well on this mare last year, has taken the call. Their figures on their best game are so close so as to make it a toss-up on that score.
Taking Silent Fright to win at 2-1 or greater, an exacta box with Sonja's Angel, and adding Angel Dreams to the exotics mix.
