In South Florida this time of year, it’s uncanny how weather forecasters make them same predictions every day, wherever the prevailing system may be coming from: Half sun icon, half lightning bolt.
Running Memories (3-1) appears to be the only filly in this $60K overnight handicap prepared to handle whatever the conditions may emerge.
She, of course, is best suited should this 5 furlong turf sprint plays out as the condition book states. The 4-year-old Joe Orseno-trained has a compelling (9) 5-2-0 distance record and an equally impressive over this ground.
She can set a strong pressured pace on the Tapeta track and draw out late of, as she showed last time, can stalk a very hot turf pace and grind down the winner. She did so under those conditions here at Gulfstream Park, MAY 8, Race 7.
Judge for yourself, we’re convinced. Further, the come-backing Kevin Krigger is doing well and is particularly adept given today’s dynamics.
We’re taking Running Memories to win at 5-2 or greater and keying quinellas with Headline Hunter (5-2) and Miss Auramet (2-1).
