Take the Hot Jock in Rider’s Race

Today’s Gulfstream Park feature is a preliminary allowances for 3-year-old fillies going 1-1/16th miles. Given that it’s a six horse field and the finish line is up the stretch for the standard finish line, this will turn into one of those “rider’s races;” always dangerous.

So in addition to one of the fastest fillies in the group on the Equiform scale, comes off a willing and troubled third in her Gulfstream debut and picks up a rider pushing all the right buttons of late, Julien Leparoux.

Goldrush Girl (3-1), half of the Ken McPeek uncoupled entry, looks like she has the best chance in this group as her line looks explosive as she’s poised to move forward to a career best effort. Today’s stretchout back to a two-turn trip suits perfectly.

Taking Goldrush Girl to win at 5-2 or greater and key boxing her with Awesome Girl (4-1) and Woodford Lady, the other McPeek filly exiting a race that produced two next out winners.
