Getting to the Cor of the Matter

Just a terrific card to start 2013 at Gulfstream Park with four stakes including one graded event, the G3 Old Hat for newly turned 3-year-old fillies.

The early line favorite, Kuaui Kate (3-5) certainly will be a tough out, winning three straight sprints to begin her career before being rated into submission and then tiring in the two-turn Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. She's back sprinting with a rider switch to Johnny V for trainer Todd Pletcher.

However, we'll opt for any value available with Cor Cor (3-1), who's shipping south from Tampa for trainer Joan Scott. Undefeated in two starts herself, she won the Sandpiper Stakes in impressive fashion, earning a New Pace Top in the process.

Since that event, she earned two bullets, is nicely drawn in the middle of a small field, and her early zip will allow her to put severe pressure on her main rival breaking from the rail. Scott Spieth, having a very solid Tampa meet, accepts a return call.

Taking Cor Cor to win at 2-1 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.
