Hopefully, Mission Accomplished at Big A


Already a three-time winner from eight career starts, Mission Command (3-1) returns from a freshening into a good spot, an optional claiming -2-other-than for state-breds.

Nicely drawn and now with 4YO maturity, his versatile style will suit here beneath the strong finishing Trevor McCarthy, who has a 21% win rate when hooking up with Rudy Rod this winter.

Add to this mix the fact he's 1-for-1 over the track and a gaudy (3) 2-1-0 at the distance, we're looking for a pocket trip to victory.

Taking Mission Command to win and boxing the exacta with Jewel Can Disco (5-2), who might prove the speediest of a speedy bunch on paper.

Another Favorite Expected to Rule a Gulf Feature


The barrage of strong looking favorites on the GP turf course continues with today's optional allowances 1-1/16 miles in which Tipsy Kitten (1-1) will be very stop to stop through the lane.

Despite the added distance, the switch to Tyler this afternoon portends patient handling. She's never failed to hit the money in 4 starts here, including a win, and she's 2-for-4 at today's trip while 1-for-10 at all other distances.

She is the fastest filly on all scales and her only danger appears to be Little Nick V. (4-1), returning from a lengthy layup.

Taking Tipsy Kitten to win and boxing the exacta with Little Nick V. and adding Seuss (8-1) to the exotics mix.

Hope the betting fare is a little more interesting tomorrow...
