Betting a Bunch on a Hunch


In today's dirt feature at Gulfstream, why did Todd Pletcher opt to run Shaan (7-2) here rather than turf, considering she was a fast-closing second in her U.S. debut, the grassy Tropical Park Oaks?

Three conceivable reasons: Her strong late finish while pace was heating up, showing excellent turn of foot, her (3) 1-2-0 slate on AW, suggesting versatility, and brilliant dirt workouts at her Palm Beach Downs, convincing the trainer she can handle it.

Not a bad spot to find that out, and he didn't win all those races because he's mistake-prone.

Taking Shaan to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with super-sharp Meadow Rose (5-2).

Speed + Speed = Gulf Victory


If weather handicappers are correct, the chances are better tan 50-50 that today's Gulf feature comes off the turf. But even if it doesn't, Bow Town Cat (5-2) would have a significant tactical edge.

Over either surface, she's the controlling speed and with Jose Ortiz scheduled to ride her back, the combination of speed-filly with speed rider is the play over any footing.

Taking Bow Town Cat to win at 2-1 or greater and an exacta box with either of Dale Romans' uncoupled pair; price shot Wolf Gourmet (12-1) or MTO Gurlin (6-1).
