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).
