GOING GULFSTREAM – JAN 5

Wide open featured seventh race with fillies and mares going 1-1/2 miles on the turf, and a competitive heat it is.

Bravo Kitten (5-2) is a deserving early favorite with Thoro-Graph figures consistently faster than the rest of the group and who just missed when stretched out 9.5 furlongs at Kentucky Downs.

She made a good late run inside behind a soft pace, the likely scenario again today. Saffie Joseph trainee comes into this off a freshening and will appreciate getting back to Hallandale where she broke maiden. Tyler G, winning with 20% efficiency for this outfit, gets the call.

However, we will go another filly that has shown some affinity for the Hallandale lawn last season. Tentatively handle last out she finished one-paced, beaten three lengths.

With the switch to Jose Ortiz, Elle Est Forte (9-2) may find herself on the lead in this three-turner or could sit in the pocket from her inside slip. Her lifetime best effort came when stretched to 11 furlongs.

Her sire Flintshire will get you as far as you want to go and had a versatile running style that could suit his daughter perfectly.

Taking Elle Est Forte to win at 3-1 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.
