Once again, the turf feature from Gulfstream Park is for 2-year-olds sprinting 5 furlongs on the turf. This preliminary allowances/optional claimer for fillies brings together a diverse group but it appears that one of the locals, owning a race over the track and a win the only time it sprinted on grass, should get it done.
Rosie Red (5-2) held her form going long two starts back following the maiden sprint score then raced as if in need of her local debut. Now turning back for Eddie Plesa, a profitable 19% going long to short, enters his filly back of a sharp blowout that proved 2nd fastest of 80 in her peer group that week at Calder. A switch to Paco Lopez doesn't hurt.
Taking Rosie Red to win at 2-1 or greater and key boxing her in multiple with Shrinking Violet (3-1) for Team Ward/Garcia, My Crayze Daisy (8-1), making turf debut for Jamie Ness (31% in that scenario, and Why Hoo (6-1) exiting a potential key race.
