An interesting start to the racing week and Wednesday’s Late Pick 5 sequence, a 1-1/16 miles turf event for newly turned three-year old fillies.
It comes as no surprise that recent maiden graduates are among the strong contenders here since they comes from top barn who do good work on the grass with some responding to medication changes.
We will stick with the trips and those that have proven some measure of form at today’s grade. Thus, we landed on Angelas Party Girl (5-1).
In her South Florida debut making her first start for Jorge Duarte, who saddled her to her lone victory last year, she responded to first Lasix with a worthy try despite her horror show trip.
A notorious slow starter, she was not helped by a troubled start which forced her to lose ground throughout and rally extremely wide into the lane, continuing gamely to the end.
See for yourself and decide what the trouble was worth: Gulfstream Park, JAN 4, Race 5. Luis Saez thinks she’s worthy of another chance and accepted the return call.
Further, the barn does well with this type of spacing and when stretching out. This looks like the day wher will get get assuming a reasonable journey.
Taking Angelas Party Girl to win at 7-2 or greater and key-boxing exactas with Lady Hamilton (5-1), also-eligible dropdown Anotherdaygoneby (9-2) and Lasix-improved Crimson Princess (9-2).
