Interesting way to end the late Pick 5 and Rainbow 6 in Hallandale, juveniles going 1-1/16 miles on Tapeta track.
In the absence of synthetic form, pedigree and running style come to the fore as prime factors. throw in trainer, jockey and trip on debut and it comes together in the form of Beachfront Bid (3-1).
In debut, the son of Speightstown saved ground at no time breaking from the extreme outside in a field of 12 and was forced to go even wider into the lane and after straightening away found his best stride much to late but outfinished all but the winner, a 6-5 Shug McGaughey trainee.
She shows three crisp half miles at his Payson Park base, is much better posted in slip #4 and Tyler Gaffalione takes the call on the chestnut filly .
Taking Beachfront Bid to win at 2-1 or greater and quinellas with the quicker Ambitieuse (4-1) and synthetic-experienced Queen Macha (7-2 with white hot Luis Saez.
