Take Zero Rate Policy to Avoid Fiscal Cliff
The feature at Gulfstream Park for Friday are split divisions of an optional secondary allowances and in the third race, the first instinct to take Team Calabrese/Ramiriz on faith with Bull Dozer (9-5), a 6-time winner at the distance and a second fastest of 53 peers workout for the week for a barn that's only 7-for-13 in second off the layup scenarios. But what fun is that?
Instead, let's welcome Zero Rate Policy back to his favorite haunt, where he's a worthy (5) 2-2-0 over the ground, earns his best figures here, picks up Rosario, and gets much needed class relief. Further, he has rebounded off poor efforts in the past, so the drop and surface could make all the difference. His recent :47 1/5 breeze speaks to that, and his versatility and favorable draw should also work to his benefit.
Taking Zero Rate Policy to win at 7-2 or greater and an exacta box with Bull Dozer.
