With Honors


Out of action yesterday due to an off-turf reschedule but the chances are good we will be back on the sod today at Gulfstream.

Featured NW2 optional is competitive on paper but Valedictorian (7-2) has a number of advantages that should put her in the circle.

Nicely drawn on the fence with tactical speed, she's a two-time course winner, 1-for-1 at the trip but, most significantly, gets some class relief and really gets along with Nik Juarez, reuniting here. Blew out crisply for Kelly Breen at PMM for this.

Taking Valedictorian to win at 5-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Noble Ready (5-1) and Island Reward (6-1).

Picky, Picky, Picky…


With all the speed signed on in today's 3rd race turf sprint at Gulfstream, and with Picara (6-1) having enough tactical speed to stay within hailing distance, a good position in mid-gate and the presence of Castellano. all factors augur well for a minor upset.

Taking Picara to win at 7-2 or greater, and key-boxing exactas with freshened, blinker-less Nootka Sound (7-2), and Mrs. Ramona G (4-1), back at proper level and picking up Saez.

Flameaway on Fire for Kitten’s Joy


With five stakes on tap at Gulfstream today, we're opting for the Kitten's Joy for three-year-olds going 7-1/2 furlongs on firm turf. And we're curious to see if Flameaway (2-1) is as versatile as he appears.

He's won on the WO all-weather, took the G3 Bourbon off-turfer over a sloppy KEE surface and, for his turf debut, Mark Casse chose nothing less than the G1 BC Juvenile Turf.

He finished eighth, but was beaten less than 4 lengths after chasing the pace from a wide post at Del Mar. This is his reality check; a listed stakes while turning back with pole position. He's had four works in South Florida since; ready!

Taking Flameaway to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing exactas with Pulpit winner Speed Franco (6-1) and impressive maiden graduate Power of Attorney (7-2).
