Looking for Upset in GP Feature


A rare dirt feature and rarer still, an opportunity for value is a 6-horse field.

Special Event (6-5) is a worthy favorite and will be a tough out. But the opportunity for an upset too good to pass up.

Follow No One (6-1) hails from a barn that's very adept in both LAY-2 situations and when going turf to dirt.

Further, the figures are fairly competitive and if pace develops--on paper yes; real life, maybe), newly turned 4YO is capable of stiting a good stalking trip beneath position-conscious Nik Juarez.

Taking Follow No One to win, an exacta box with the favorite, and adding work-sharpened Magalie (8-1) to the exotics mix.

Travel Day…Cutting to the Chase….


I did the numbers work and I can't beat the 4-5 favorite in today's Tampa Bay turf feature.

Noble Thought is dropping out of a Grade 3 and is fastest on the Thoro-Graph scale. To win, for the record.

The play is a boxed exacta with Natural Order (7-2) forward looking with live connections; Pablo Morales for Raymond Handal.

O Solo-Mini


Disinclined to try beating Bob Baffert, seeking only his seventh win in today's Rebel Stakes, a $900,000 prep race. Seems insane to offer that much money for a bridge race.

But that's why Baffert's here, for the beaucoup bucks. And he's bringing one of the fastest, and most accomplished guns in the West, Solomini (3-2), who boasts six strong moves in preparation for this. Count on the patient Prat to time his move with the tactical speedster who can kick.

Visually, we've been super impressed by Magnum Moon. Todd Pletcher won this race previously with Malagacy, who, like this year's entrant, was making his third lifetime start. Note that Luis Saez is sticking with Todd, despite riding talented LAY-2 returnee, Sporting Chance (5-1), for D Wayne regularly.

Of course, picking up Johnny V is no hardship. Taking Solomini to win, boxing the exacta with Magnum Moon, and keying the choice, adding Sporting Chance, Title Ready (8-1), Combatant (8-1) and Zing Zang (20-1) to complete super-exotics.
