Sinatra To Do It Mott’s Way…


...And that is to prep your 6YO gelding at Tampa, his first start of the year, then ship back to South Florida's GP, where the veteran owns a (4) 2-1-0 slate and is stretching out a bit to his optimal distance.

Sinatra is 3-for-5 at this trip and 0-for-8 at all others. His Projected Performance figure is among the best in the field and he's earned his top figures with consistency. Mott's worked him thrice since his Tampa prep and switches to Johnny V. for the GP return.

Taking Sinatra to win, no price restrictions, and key-boxing him exacta with dropdowns Karibu Gardens and Sky Captain, adding Calvados to the super-exotics mix.

You Gotta’ Dance With Me Penry


Another competitive turf route today but this heat appears to have a strong contender that should offer some value: Penry (8-1).

Since shifting into the Olivares barn and adding Lasix, the 3YO filly has improved her form including most recently when she was third after making solid mid-race move from a wide post first time going long, realizing the promise of her distance-handling pedigree.

Now moving to a mid-pack draw and switching to Edgard Zayas, we're looking for a peak performance as she comes off two very good works.

Taking Penry to win at 4-1 or greater, key-boxing her first and second in exotics with recent course graduate Twist 'n Bake (5-1) and dropdown Navajo Kitten (4-1), making second start off the DiBona claim and picking up Paco.

Competitive Turf Feature Begins Gulfstream Race Week


At first blush, a handicapper could have gone many ways, from the classy early line favorite to 20-1 shots with a puncher's chance. We compromised and will reach out to Rubindy (4-1).

When last seen, the Chad Brown trained 4YO filly chased the leader from close range, moved to a short lead in midstretch but was unable to hold off strong finishing Principessa Ava. That filly came back to narrowly missed the show in highly competitive Tampa Grade 3 after being forced to alter course in deep stretch.

Rubindy now returns six weeks later off a steady workline and is taken to make amends with switch to Rosario.

Taking Rubindy to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Magic Reality (2-1), dropping out of a G3, and adding the fresh Cloture (6-1) and improving price shot Union Prayer (20-1) to the exotics mix.
