Gulfstream Ship-In Has Plenty of Flair


I'm a big X Y Jet (7-5) fan, only we're not betting him to win today. Despite the great works, tremendous speed, love for the surface, I need to see one; 399 days is a long time.

We're taking the value offered on Fast Friar (12-1). Of course, it's a big jump in class, but he owns tactical speed, outside position and kick. As a gelded 4YO he's just coming into his own.

This chestnut is fresh, John Mazza is 19% profitable with his shippers, likes the course, and Nik Juarez is a more than capable partner.

Taking Fast Flair to win the G3 Mr. Prospector at 6-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the favorite and that one's sharp, uncoupled mate, Fire Mission (6-1).

Sharpness Matters


There may be classier in today's 7 furlong feature for fillies and mares at the Big A, and a few more proven at the distance, but is none is sharper than Friend of Liberty (5-1) is right now.

Yes, she benefited from wet footing in her last but handle a fast track just fine, she has outside position in a field without a confirmed speedster and a well-time turn move can blow this thing wide open. Manny Franco will figure it out and Michelle Nevin is a profitable 22% with her allowance sprinters.

Taking Friend of Liberty to win at 4-1 or greater and exacta key-boxes with turnback A Place to Shine (7-2) and pointed Bombshell (4-1), adding class dropping Dawn the Destroyer (2-1) to the super-exotics mix..

Talented Recent Sano Graduate Gets Tougher Test Today


Does Antonio Sano have a productive soon-to-be three-year-old reminiscent of Gunnevera for Gulfstream's impending lead-up to the 2018 Florida Derby?

Could be, could be not; you decide. Check out the video on recent GP West juvenile graduate Sentiamen (8-5), who broke his maiden impressively with a wide turn move that just inhaled his rivals before drawing off.

It's going to take a very fast horse to beat him today, the featured sprint for preliminary allowance types. Either way, it will be interesting to see what he has.

Taking Sentiamen to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing exactas with promising Gone Fishing (6-1) and sharp ship-in Charge Card (6-1).
