The Trip Is Key
Today's Grade 2 Beaumont is not the strongest field of this level we've seen, drawing only six horses, three of which can win on the Equiform scale, but that's the issue, too: These fillies are just not that fast. So, it's back to Handicapping 101. It appear that Sacristy (7-5), given his post, running style and race, is most likely to sit the perfect stalking trip.
Further, the race she exits, has turned into a super key race. To date, all three fillies to exit GUlfstream's Forward Gal Stakes have come back to win. Leading rider Julien Leparoux gets the call for Wayne Catalano.
Taking Sacristy to win, with no price restrictions, boxing her in the exacta with Gypsy Robin (7-2).
