Today's Gulfstream feature is an optional secondary allowances for older turf mares at the marathon distance of 11 furlongs. You'd expect a race like this to bve dominatedby the usual suspects and this event in no different: I'll see your Bill Mott and raise you a Christophe Clement.

When last seen, Aigue Marine (5-2) was a good third in the G3 Long Island Handicap, making her U.S. debut with Lasix. Today, she drops into the proper condition for an outfit known for expertise with its returnees and she benefits from a switch to Jose Lezcano. With any kind of a realistic pace, the 4-year-old--bred to run up the side of the mountain--will be hard to deny.

Taking Aigue Marine to win, no price restructions, and key boxing her with her rival here and with Quschi (6-1) for Graham Motion, a profitable 28% with his first-time U.S. shipppers.
