Today’s featured event in Hallandale and in this space is the In Reality Florida Sires finale and the lesson is the place you lose it is the place you get it back.
Whichever figures you choose, there’s no contesting the fastest last race on the page is Affirmed Stakes, and you will find the Going Gulfstream Video this and every Saturday on the HRI landing page. That prep for today’s $400,000 final came at Gulfstream Park, AUG 28, Race 11.
Octane (2-1) won that race as clearly best, taking advantage of dynamics on the day. When he did so, it was at the direct expense of 13-10 favorite Cajun’s Magic.
With a post position switch inside, and the presence of more early speed, ‘Magic’s’ experience and demonstrated late punch will come to the fore.
Show finisher Big and Classy (6-1) has a good puncher’s chance to offer value, as does Cattin (8-1), each getting a positive rider switch.
