Gulfstream Park


Race #3 – #5 – Skyfly = She adds Lasix and just missed last out. She was closing strong last out and gets an extra furlong to run. Jaramillo retains the mount looking for graduation today.

Race #4 – #2 – Noble Indy = 2nd time off the layoff where Todd Pletcher wins 20% and Luis Saez in the saddle where he wins 30% for the Todd-Squad. Blikers back on where they score 20% with the hood and he is 2/2 ITM at GP.

Race #6 – #1 – State Crown = is a daughter of Blame who gets 2nd Lasix where Mike Trombetta wins 23% and draws the golden rail which is winning at a 24% clip under Jose Ortiz.

Race #8 – #2 – Pleasecallmeback = is a beaten favorite who comes back to score 23% turning the tables. Fresh off the claim for Mike Maker who wins 16% with new runners in his barn. Jose Ortiz has the call.

Race #9 – #1 – Lookin At Roses = Draws the rails and drops down in class. He is 2/2 ITM at GP and sports a sharp work to prepare.



Fair Grounds


Race #2 – #8 – Crazy Good = makes her 2nd start dropping down in class. She tries the turf where her dam Summer has 8 starters with 7 winners and 2 turf winners.

Race #6 – #1 -Born Great = makes his 2nd start off the layoff and was a beaten favorite where Brendan Walsh wins 28%. Adam Beschizza in the irons and and he teams up to win 33% with the connections.

Race #7 – #4 – Guided Missile = makes his 2nd start over the track for Bret Calhoun and they stretch out in distance. B. J. Hernandez stays aboard and wins 22% with Calhoun.
