Sugar and Spice and Dust and Diamonds

Today's Gulfstream Park feature is the G3 Sugar Swirl Stakes featuring Dust and Diamonds (8-5), making her first start following a sales purchase and barn change to Todd Pletcher. You may have heard of him.

Actually, he's very good in these first time situations but, besides, the last tim she was seen on the racetrack, she was finishing a good second to Groupie Doll in the Filly and Mare Sprint. Pletcher said this week she's been training very well at Palm Meadows.Honestly don't think I can beat her.

Taking Dust and Diamonds to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing in exactas with both halves of the Catalano entry; Sacristy (4-1) and Honey Chile (6-1).
