How Deep Is the Ocean; How High Is the Sky?


Personally, we were shocked to learn that on our Energy Ratings scale, Ocean Knight (99) had a wide margin on the group assembled for the Tampa Bay Derby, including classy stable-mate and 8-5 early line favorite Carpe Diem.

Owned by same connections, Ocean Knight (2-1) supposedly was headed to NY until the threat of bad weather altered that course. We'll take the undefeated, potential freak to win with no price restrictions.

In order to potentially take some money out of this race, we'll key the McLaughlin trainee 1-2 in super-exotics with Ami’s Flatter (15-1), getting the Lasix/blinkers makeover, the tough tripping, purposefully-working Johnny Be Good (15-1) beneath talented, meet-leading Antonio Gallardo, Divining Rod (6-1), who pushed O.K. to the max in the S.F. Davis prep and Danzig Moon (12-1) from the Casse barn that points to this race every year.

Feathered Rules the Roost


Feathered is a layover and will be a short price in today's Gulfstream feature, especially given the connections. The choice for handicappers here is the classic speed vs. style and dynamics but that battle, between Zia and Huasca, will be for place.

Taking Feathered to win, no price restrictions, and keying her in exactas with the two fillies above. For a complete breakdown of the race, click on the blog section at http://www.123bet.com.

Shhh!!


In today's Gulfstream feature, two horses layover the group with TERs of 74 and 70, respectively. Further, Penry has a 2-point TER edge over La Moskette with three runners clustered directly below at 59; virtually no difference among four of the five.

The layovers require some thought, too, as Twist’n Bake and Quiet Kitten are keys in the top slot. Consider whether you prefer the ‘faster Kitten’ with two angles, or the ‘slower Twist’n Bake’ with 11 favorable angles?

Per usual, we will let closing odds decide the win play while keying both up top--‘Bake’ is the value on early line. Will use Penry in 2nd slot and the clustered bunch just below.

For running total purposes, taking Quiet Kitten to win, no price restrictions. For a complete breakdown of today's race, click on blog section at http://www.123bet.com.
