Jerkens, Lezcano a Winning Team in Thursday Feature


In today's feature from Gulfstream, it seems clear that Team Colors (6-1) developed an issue following last spring's placing to the streaking, surface loving Valid in the G3 Skip Away and didn't return until this year's G3 Hal's Hope.

That was a lot to ask coming off the bench. But he's back quickly here, returns to the turf, and gets class relief for Jimmy Jerkens, an otherworldly 32% profitable with LAY-2 runners. Jose Lezcano accepts a return call.

Taking Team Colors to win at 4-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the speedy distance specialist Tale of Fancy (8-1) and the classy returnee American Patriot (7-2), meeting considerable weaker in his return of a lengthy layup for Todd, 29% effective with 90 days + returnees.

Holy Ghalia


No long stories regarding today's Gulfstream feature, check the replay for yourself:

Ghalia (4-5) broke maiden like a stakes filly for Pletcher, she came back with a strong work at her Palm Beach base and the fact she entered back here relatively quickly for this outfit indicates that all is well, thank you.

Taking Ghalia to win, no price restrictions, and will try to optimize with La Vie Ross (12-1), exiting a key race, and the sharp working Worth Avenue (10-1) in the multiples.

Number of Selections since 2007: 2237

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 676-439

Bow Tie to Black Tie?


Today's turf feature at Gulfstream Park is vexing. Logical horses appear easy enough to find but their form seems dubious for various reasons.

In this case we will err on the side of versatility as Bow Tie Affair (6-1) can stalk from close range or comes from the clouds. With a dearth of reliable speed, the former seems the more logical of the two.

Taking Bow Tie Affair to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with hard hitting old pro Padilla (5-2) and Prince Vincenzo (3-1), meeting weaker and getting a switch to Paco.


Number of Selections since 2007: 2235

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 675-439

Amount Wagered: $4,470 [$2 to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $4,541.90
