Talk of Wide Open Gulfstream Feature


Interesting feature at Gulfstream today, a 6-furlong sprint with a NW1/optional claiming condition. We're taking the upside available with Spintalk (5-1).

Recent maiden breaker at GPWest, his debut here was a willing third at the distance behind then surging Zulu. Meets older hard-hitters in this matchup but is suited by dynamics, given his style and outside draw. I won't be easy but value relative to chances seems assured.

Taking Spintalk to win at 3-1 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with price shot Behzad's Prize (10-1) and the freshened Island Cat (6-1), adding turf-to-dirt Kokomo Wildcat (2-1) to the super-exotics mix.

Number of Selections since 2007: 2188

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 662-430

Exacta Finishes: .499%

Amount Wagered: $4,376.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,474.90

Profit to Date: $98.90

Woo Hoo!


Let's venture to Northern Florida where the best feature race will be run at Tampa Bay Downs, a small but competitive field of $100K claiming turf sprinters.

The Bennett family has an uncoupled entry in here--Gerald with Daniel Centeno has been hot--but we're taking Wild Woo Who (5-2), who is not only getting class relief but has run well on this course, at the 5F trip, and who fits the race shape nicely here.

Taking Wild Woo Who to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with both Bennett family horses--who should really be coupled due to common ownership--One Lucky Step (7-2) and Bill's Passion (3-1).

Number of Selections since 2007: 2187

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 662-430

Exacta Finishes: 50%

Amount Wagered: $4,374.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,474.90

Profit to Date: $100.90

Is It Any Wonder?


Today's Feature Race Analysis via promotional consideration with http://www.123BET.COM

Looking for an upset in today G3 Go for Wand Handicap but it's not going to be a big one. It's predicated that the sloppy track and a career best effort in the state-bred mile and a sixteenth at Belmont, which she won by 18, will leave Bar of Gold (8-5) a little worse for the wear.

Instead, we're taking Wonder Gal (9-5) to rebound off her difficult trip in the Breeders' Cup F & M Sprint given the return home, the added furlong, and the class relief she gets here.

Taking Wonder Gal to win, no price restrictions, and key-box exactas with the favorite and the rapidly improving, value laden Highway Star (8-1).

And is it any wonder that if there's a Grade 1 on the turf, Chad Brown has three horses to run in it, even if he has to ship 2,400 miles to do it?

Today's Hollywood Derby at Del Mar features Brown's Camelot Kitten (7-2) as the favorite in the competitive nine furlongs. But stable-mate Beach Patrol (9-2), with better position today, will spring the upset.

Taking Beach Patrol to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with his mate, adding Blackjacketcat (8-1) to the exotics mix.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2185

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 662-429

Amount Wagered: $4,370.00 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,474.90

Profit to Date: $104.90
