Race 2: 9-4-1-5
Race 3: 3-5-6-7
Race 4 Grade II Gulfstream Park Mile
Prince Lucky (4): Returned with a big effort off the bench for TAP that field he saw in the Hals Hope was much better than hell see today, a repeat effort makes him the winner.
Tale of Silence (1): Also coming out of the Hal’s Hope but he didn’t run a step in there however he has some numbers to go back to and this field isn’t much outside of our top pick.
Be Gone Daddy (3): Much improved in his last two starts a forward progression again makes him a player in this race that doesn’t have the look of a real Grade II.
Race 5 Cutler Bay Stakes
Art G is Back (4): Sees a much easier field than he faced in the Palm Beach where he made a good showing in his first attempt on turf.
Marquee Prince (3): Coming in off back to back wins and is in top career form and the one to beat. Cox is 2/2 on the meet and only shipping in very live runners.
Seismic Wave (1): The connections were always high on this one and looks like he is ready after rolling to win his maiden off the bench. He will have a say in the outcome.
Race 6 Sanibel Island Stakes
Belle Laura (4): Couldn’t seal the deal last out but she should be sharp here second off the layoff and gets Johnny V.
A Bit Special (3): The one to beat for Biancone comes back fresh after a nice win in the Sweet Chant, Julian picks here over our top choice.
Trenchcoat Cat(): Broke maiden last out impressively and stretches out with Irad in the irons.
Race 7: 3-11-5-10
Race 8 Grade II Gulfstream Park Oaks
Point of Honor (3): Don’t get the morning line here give me the experienced two turn runner over the flashy maiden winner.
Champagne Anyone (5): Ran good in the Davona Dale and didn’t get a pace to run into the pace should be quicker here and give her a bigger shot.
Dunbar Road (6): No doubt this one is talented but she will have to prove herself at two turns for a turf trainer before I’m running to take a short price.
Race 9: 8 -10-2-9
Race 10 Sand Springs Stakes
Proctors Ledge (9): The bottom line with this race is if she is ready she is much the one to beat and will be around 7/5 NOT the 4/1 morning line. The board will be key here pay attention.
Valedictorian (5): She has been in top form this winter running with some of the best on the circuit she will look to wire this bunch.
Fire Key (2) : She has some sneaky big numbers to go back to here, if the top two falter she could pick up the pieces.
Race 11: 3-9-5-11-8
Race 12: 4-1-7-2-3-6
Race 13 Grade III Pan American
Soglio (8): Ran second to Zulu Alpha on Pegasus day who came back to win since this looks like the best of the Maker pair.
Focus Group (1): Chad Brown has been firing with everything off the layoff this race was likely targeted a while back, must use.
Bigger Picture (9): Has a lot of back class and Gafflione lands here for Maker.
Race 14 Grade I Florida Derby
Hidden Scroll (1): Committed to a suicide pace last out and was still very game to hold 4th there isn’t nearly as much speed as there was in the FOY he should be able to relax a little on the front end and we will see if he’s as good as many think including myself.
Bourbon War (4): Ran the better race then Point of Honor the winner when covering significant more group in the FOY to just miss. He has the better post here to save ground.
Point of Honor (9): Winner of the FOY with a perfect set up lets see if he can repeat that effort, looks to be working great into the race.
