Clement-Bravo Team Formidable in GP Feature


Today's optional claiming feature at Gulfstream Park for 3YO males going a mile is loaded with possibilities and opportunity providing that the right key is chosen.

We're not going to get too creative here and take the briefly freshened Scoria (2-1). the filly showed improved speed in her latest after adding blinkers for the Kittens Joy overnighter but really didn't have a chance to fire her best shot late while racing between rivals much of the way.

Her prior, at this distance vs. similar, was a probably best second, finishing like a rocket. She deserves this chance coming back with steady series of drills and Joe Bravo on the re-ride.

Taking Scoria to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing him first and second in super-exotics with recent claim Steve (6-1), another sharp claim Thunder Run (5-1) and Branded Hand (3-1) meeting weaker set for Mott who taps Rosario here.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1500

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 458-285-230

Amount Wagered: $3,000 [to win only]

Raging Figures


Today's Gulfstream feature is a very interesting optional claimer for high-priced 3YO fillies going 1-1/16 miles on the turf. We give four of the fillies an excellent chance but we're going to have to opt for early line favorite Raging Atlantic (5-2).

This filly looms fastest on our energy scale and had a tough last time out stalking the pace--not her preferred style--in the G3 Herecomesthebride at 9 furlongs. This is suitably shorter, and easier, and it's hard to imagine anyone having better meets than the team of Castellano and Maker, unless it's Castellano and Pletcher, or Castellano and...you get the idea.

Today's distance and outer draw should set her up nicely in the trip department.

Taking Raging Atlantic to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing first and second in super-exotics with tough-trip-last-out Patsy's Holiday (3-1), recent good-looking claim One Penny Piece (4-1), price shot Backstretch Lady (8-1), from the live turf barn of Michael Wilson and well intentioned Spring Likeacobra (5-1), switching to Rosario.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1498

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 458-285-229

Amount Wagered: $2,998 [to win only]

Wish They All Could Be West Coast Girls


Somewhat of a disappointing feature, a preliminary allowances for 3YO fillies going a mile that has attracted a field of five with one entrant, an uncoupled Mott trainee, entered to make the race go for a recent fast maiden breaker, a$750K yearling purchase named West Coast Girl.

The competition doesn't scare anyone and her style indicates she can blow this open on the far turn with Rosario calling the signals. She won't make you rich.

Taking West Coast Girl to win, no price restrictions, and an exacta box with the sharp, well drawn Gdansk.

Number of Selections since May, 2007: 1496

Number of Win-Place-Show Finishers: 458-284-229

Amount Wagered: $2,994 [to win only]

Total Dollar Return on Investment: $3,132.60

Profit to Date: $138.60 {Saturday results not included}
