Going for Gulfstream Gusto


Friday’s Gulfstream feature boasts so much talent it’s a wonder that there’s not a proper name attached to it: It’s a Grade 3 masquerading as a NW1 allowances.

There’s Shagaf (8-5), the second time starter for Chad Brown, whose debut score must be seen to be believed. There’s Rally Cry (9-5), who opted out of tomorrow’s Hold Bull in favor of this.

Michael Matz’s Tasit (10-1) has been training up a storm at Palm Meadows. Never mind that his three runs have come on grass. Remember a horse called Barbaro?

Then there’s Bar None (6-1), a sharp debut winner on the surface that figures to appreciate today’s added two furlongs, as will I in this matchup. That and the anticipated value.

Taking Bar None to win at early line odds or greater and key boxing in super-exotics with the rivals listed above.

Number of Selections since 2007: 1932

Number of Win and Place Finishes: 582-371

Amount Wagered: $3,864 [$2 to win only]

Clear Sailing for Stormy Sky


Going north today with a better chance of clear skies.

We concede that in today’s feature, True Romance (5-2) has proven classier and faster than today’s rivals on the Thoro-Graph scale, especially on the winter track.

But we’re taking the value, the five pounds, and the better spacing with the upwardly mobile 4-year-old Stormy Sky (4-1).

Betting Stormy Sky to win at 3-1 or greater and considering the favorite and surface loving Awesome News (3-1) in exactas.

Bad Weather Selection in Wednesday Feature


Handicappers won't need a search party to tab the most likely winner of today's allowance sprint at Gulfstream Park but he'll need to trade in the form for a weather map.

If it's dry, it's Trouble Kid (8-5). If it's wet, it's Blofield (9-5).

Either way; the prices could be worse in the six-horse matchup. The chance of rain is 1-5 on the early line, weather handicappers giving that prop an 80% chance.

I'll sign right now, providing the tornedos keep up.
