Demon speed will be on display in today's Gulfstream feature, an optional/allowances turf sprint going 5 furlongs and it features two trainers that do very well in this category; Wesley Ward and Michael Pino. In this matchup, we'll shade the latter's 3YO speedster.
When last seen, Party Lad (5-1) was racing wide on the Fair Grounds turf course--no way to get the job done there and a completely different animal when compared to Gulfstream's speed favoring oval. Prior to his trip to NOLA, Party Lad broke his turf and course maiden at today's distance on Dec. 20. Back at the same distance here with Bravo on the re-ride.
Taking Party Lad to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing in multiples with the pair from Ward; the very sharp Off The Page (4-1) and the classy returnee, Rip Roarin RItchie (5-2).
