Potential Trumps Speed in Gulfstream Feature
A rare Tuesday analysis brought on by the rarer still return to racing at Gulfstream Park--in June. And the preliminary allowances/optional claimer at 6-1/2 furlongs present many different ways to go.
We realize we'll be up against it picking against some of the outfits with entrants here but must believe that it is the 3-year-old Gloton (6-1) that has the most upside. Undefeated in two starts at the hybrid distance, one of those wins came on this track in his racing debut. While not as fast as his rivals here, his draw, style and presence of a live apprentice should guarantee an optimum effort.
Taking Gloton to win at 5-1 or greater and key-boxing him in money positions with the Calabrese/Ziadie entry (2-1), mega-dropdown Coosada (3-1), returning with excellent spacing, and Ecabroni (6-1), representing top connections.
