The troubling thing about today’s Gulfstream feature is that there are more questions than answers and without the tote board for clues the choices will be less informed.
There are no replays available for Lorenz (3-1), first time U.S. and first time Saffie, a Gr 3 winner in his native Brazil going long on grass. Is this Tapeta meant as a prep? He’s working strongly.
Now Wicked Finn (8-1) did not beat much in his last here but did so impressively. Ridden like the best horse, he was challenged in the midst of a turn move, responded, then drew off late. Gets confident rise in class, and when Peter Walder’s horses get good, they tend to repeat.
Given the scenario, we’re making our best guess with Midway Mischief (5-1. He looked badly in need of season’s debut recently. Fresh he chase the pace throughout but was done by headstretch.
Two things: Fresh, he chase the pace throughout–not his game–and his work tab was spotty. He had a right to need it. See if you agree Gulfstream Park, JUN 19, Race 11. We like that Edwin Gonzalez, profitable when riding for Mark Casse, takes a return call.
We’ going to exacta-box all three and bet Midway Mischief to win at 4-1 or more.
