Local Hero Makes Good…Again
It's so warm in the Big Apple that, just for fun, we're taking a trip to...Gulfstream!
Today's SoFla feature is the Harlan's Holiday Stakes that has Donn prep written all over it. The mile and a sixteenth should serve to move classy Neck n' Neck (3-1) and Bourbon Courage (4-1) forward toward that Grade 1, and that's why well stay with the "now" horse, Csaba (5-2), who just loves it here at his home base.
And whether it's Miami Lakes or Hallandale, that doesn't seem to matter, either.
Sharp, tactical, well drawn inside and, with regular partner Luis Saez in the boot, Phil Gleaves trainee figures to be a tough out in this spot.
Taking Csaba to win at early line odds or greater, use the classy prepsters above, and adding Sr. Quisqueyano (6-1), back at his best distance, and Reveron (8-1) and well spotted Canadian River Seven (5-1), an excellent placing in lone dirt start in Toronto.
