The Sunday feature in Hallandale is an optional allowances for Florida-breds, and if you check out Khozy My Boy’s (5-2) last we believe you will like what you see from the Gulfstream Park, SEP 10, Race 8.
All dressed up and looking for clear sailing, he altered course outside, kicked in, and got the job done with 1-1/4 lengths to spare. The gelded 4-year-old could not have found a sweeter spot to repeat.
Claimed by Frank Calabrese, trainer Saffie Joseph, who has excellent numbers first time off the claim, found this spot limited to state-breds and claimers who are stepping into this allowances from a much lower claiming grade.
Other positives include a versatile style that suits any race shape, allowing him to take advantage of his inside draw.
We’ll take Khozy My Boy to win at 2-1 or greater, and quinella with improving potential price shot The Red Man (6-1), hoping that he will complete an instant double with 7th race favorite, Endless Front (7-5) for Todd Pletcher and Emisael Jaramillo.
