Good to Have a Competitive Edge


The overnight Tamarac Stakes might be a glamorized allowance race between two of the six runners but it doesn’t mean the race is void of drama.

Which talented colt is the readiest returning from injuries; one minor, one not so much.

Competitive Edge is the undefeated winner of two by a combined 15-3/4 lengths, including the Hopeful—but he’s not started since the August Grade 1.

Mr. Jordan is extremely talented and is coming off a minor issue and relatively short layoff. But Competitive Edge looked like a special horse at 2 and this is A Pletcher trainee, after all.

Taking Competitive Edge to win, no price restrictions, an exacta box with Mr. Jordan, and adding Chipit and Cool Man Walkin to the super-exotics mix.

Hear Kitten Roar


Simply stated, Quiet Kitten has a significant edge in today’s feature race at Gulfstream at one mile on turf.

Her projected Pricci energy rating lays over the field, she has the right style for the task, suits the dynamics well, makes her first start since claimed into the winning Vitali barn.

The switch to Edgar Prado should insure a quiet journey from a good mid-gate position until the rider is ready to pull the string.

Taking Quiet Kitten to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing her 1-2 in exactas with the only two fillies we rate to have the best upset chance; Stroke Play and Knoll. The battle for super-exotics minors is wide open.
