Most Likely Winner: (Race 10: Blue Twirlin #7, 7/2): OFF-THE-TURF ...

When owner Gary Barber and trainer Mark Casse get together … there is a ton of history afoot. They team-up once again, and bring back to the GP turf this filly by Air Force Blue. Back in early November, she was not terribly impressive in an AW try in a MSW52k. Maybe the time off, some works, and a move back to the grass is in order. I sure would like to see Rafael Hernandez get on track. He is one of my favorite jockeys who regularly rides at Woodbine. Hernandez makes solid decisions, and can handle rating/traffic troubles like a professional Formula 1 driver. His numbers during the current Meet do not reflect his ability. This one will sure be a square price if she ends up at 7/2. What a bet on the hot pink silks of Barber & Co.!

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #7


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 5: Seguimi #2, 15/1):

Much to like with this long shot pick, who could end up north of 20/1 when this race goes off. Not only are the gelding’s odds looking favorable, but I think he has a measure of fitness too. Running up at Woodbine, he can handle the Tapeta, and the best news of all is that he is taking a major class drop. Simon Stuart is a trainer that you might not be familiar with, but do not discount his ability. I like this one’s recent work over at Palm Meadows, and he clearly gets a solid pilot in Junior Alvarado … what an unsung jockey, when compared to Ortiz or Saez!

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #2 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 6: Turf, 5F, AOC62.5k, F&M 4+): OFF-THE-TURF ...

It is time to turn and burn on the AW at Gulfstream (moved from the turf), and this is going to be a fun one to handicap. As per usual, the difference between a 5F and 5 1/2F contest might seem similar, but I would argue that it is not. Looking through this field, I want a sprinter who has worked at this distance before both in competition and on the training track. Getting out of the gate cleanly, and securing a forward position is an absolute must. Based on this criteria, for my money I think that trainer Saffie Joseph’s Fouzia #4 looks best when it comes to style and form. She is a filly by Sky Mesa that can handle the distance, and likes to work out on the engine. The switch to Tyler Gaffalione is an upgrade, and his aggressive riding should be able to help this team get home, securing the victory. Let’s use this one as the “key,” and role under 3 others that can assist with the cashing of this ticket I have constructed. I particularly like … Larry Rivelli’s Richies Great Girl #3, Carlos David’s Reinagol #5, and finally, Phil Serpe’s Tiple #7. A class drop, a pair of wins at this distance, and NYRA form … those are the primary reasons for including these runners (in that order). Should be a blast to wager and watch this one go off! Who doesn’t like a Tapeta sprint?

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Superfecta Wheel, 4 w 3/5/7 w 3/5/7 w 3/5/7


The Championships Meet rolls on! Best of luck on another run at Gulfstream Park!
