Knight Errant (7): Goes first time turf for a sire that is around 20% first time on turf and though he has showed nothing in two career starts I am hoping the turf wakes him up in a dreadful field of maiden 25 claimers.
Rodeo Romance (6): Was improved when getting on the turf for the first time and should continue to get better in only his third career start.
Chasing the Dream (1): From a numbers perspective this one is much the one to beat but it did not give me much confidence when he showed nothing on the drop last out.
*I recommend using as many horses as your budget allows here*
Apiary (8): A very well bred firster for Mclaughlin who is coming into this race off good workouts.
Nonna Bella (3): Todd has a lot of success first out with maiden special weights at Gulf and with many unknowns in this race you can bet this one will take all the money.
Gifted Lady (5): Mark Hennig has had a terrific past few months and a majority of his wins have come with FTS which is usually not his forte.
*Keep an eye on the board to see who gets bet here*
Quality Rocks (1): With a lack of speed in this race I look for Lezcano to take them all the way from the rail which has been a good place to be on the turf this meet. Mott has had them ready to run off the layoff at this particular meet and this one should be no different.
Exiclly (9): Has just missed in both starts in the states while keeping good tuff company. This is the horse to beat in the race.
Chiringuita (2): Took a real liking to the Gulfstream Park turf in her last start but will need to step up yet again to beat our top two selections.
Race 11 Grade III Sweet Chant Stakes
Tamit (2): Has done nothing wrong in only two career starts and has every reason to keep improving for a hot barn.
Rymska (7): Makes her return from the Breeders Cup where she had a rough trip. She is the one to beat here with a cleaner trip.
Compelled (3): Was talked about in a big way before making her debut at Saratoga and just missed first out but has since won 2 of 3 starts and last time was super impressive winning by over 6 lengths.
Race 12 Grade II Holy Bull
Fact Finding (1): This Pletcher trainee is 3/3 but a little slow on the figures which should not scare you off he already has a win over the track and Todd has owned these prep races over the years at Gulfstream Park.
Classic Empire (3): The odds on favorite and the one to beat coming back off his BC Juvenile win. He has reportadly been working up a storm in South Beach and is ready for a big run to the Kentucky Derby.
Cavil (8): It seemed to me something went wrong when he made his first start over Gulf because he is clearly more talented than he showed so we are willing to give him one more shot here.
