This being the time of year for the babies, today’s accent will be on a maiden allowances going one mile and 70 yards on Tapeta track.
One of the ingredients for success for juveniles is experience and Maximo (5-2) clearly has that in a lineup filled with first time starters. Of great import, he has things to recommend.
The favorite in today’s sixth is going to be a tough out,
After getting a run in his sloppy main track debut, he switched to the All Weather and made improvements in his effort while while his performance figure forward.
He rallied into the contention and continued willingly despite his rider losing the crop at a critical stage. Judge the effort for yourself: Gulfstream Park, JUN 25, Race 1.
Appropriately here, he stretch out to two turns which suits his pedigree and Junior Alvarado returns from yesterday’s Saratoga opener in time for the mount.
Taking Maximo to win, no price restrictions, and quinellas with both Mark Casse newcomers, Junipero Serra (4-1) and Crafty King (9-2).
