Shipping south from GP’s sister track in Laurel Maryland, gelded five-year-old gets class relief, favorable dynamics and a switch to Samy Camacho, a turf whiz known for position and finishing style, and recently has won two starts in six tries for this outfit.
Coming in fresh for trainer Sarah Nagle, a profitable 20% win rate on the year and who does excellent work with shippers–21% ands profitable.
Late ralliers such as Slippin Jimmy (7-2) are always at the mercy of the early pace but that factor is somewhat mitigated because of the Tapeta surface. The ante post odds should be fair.
We’re taking Slippin Jimmy to win at 5-2 or greater, exacta key-boxes with well placed dropdown Island Commish (7-5) and Like What I See (3-1) for Team Breen/Paco–making an early foray into south Florida.
Also adding Dubai Key (12-1) into the super-exotics, working well in blinkers, and also adding Lasix, for his U.S. debut for Amador Sanchez.
