Nothing Finer than One Liner in Gulf Feature


If recent form holds, the favorite will scratch here and we'll be looking at yet another odds-on winner. Absent that, we're looking to beat the horse that finished second to Sharp Azteca in the NYRA Mile and third to Roy H in the Breeders' Cup Sprint, Mind Your Biscuits (2-5).

We're looking for One Liner (5-2) to upset, given Todd Pletcher's ability to win off the bench at this venue, 31% overall with 90-day+ returnees.

The undefeated winner of the Southwest Stakes hasn't run since last spring but given his sprint win here last season, an outside draw in a small field and likelihood of getting first run, we believe he'll get this done under the masterful Johnny V.

Taking One Liner to win at 2-1 or greater, boxing the exacta with the favorite.

Little Chesney to Come Up Big


There's a world of difference between turf courses in South and Northern Florida, and we're betting that Little Chesney (9-2) will be happy to get back home.

A winner of three straight to begin her career, including two at Gulfstream, the more challenging ground coupled with a rise in class was too much for the newly turned 4YO gelding to overcome. Nicely spotted with this group, she will appreciate the services of Julien Leparoux this afternoon.

Taking Little Chesney to win at 3-1 or greater and key-boxing exactas with the very logical Super Spender (2-1) and Platinum Prince (8-5).

Spending Quality Time at the Wickets


Time to go the the videotape. Never mind that Chris Clement is excellent with LAY-3 runners, all one needs is to check out the Jumby Time race that Quality Time (3-1) comes out of.

Tyler committed to saving ground on the fence and it might have worked had the filly not been sloughed in mid-stretch, forcing Gaffalione to check. Regaining stride as quickly as possible, she finished well but too late. Too late for win but good enough for show and an energetic gallop out after the wire.

Taking Quality Time to win at 2-1 or greater, key-boxing exactas with Sound Defence (5-1) and April Rose (4-1), adding price shot Missimard (30-1) to the super-exotics mix.
