6 -MYFIRSTEXWIFE Is dropping down to the 12,500 level after finishing 2nd here on March 1st for maiden 25,000. Gets Irad Ortiz Jr Aboard, and this 3-year-old filly is 50 percent in the money lifetime going this distance as well as over this track.
7- BUSINESSINDUBAI dropping down in class after running 4th by on only 3 ½ lengths for maiden claimers of 16k, which she went a mile showing a lot of speed. I like the cutback in the distance and Luis Saez aboard, who can be very aggressive with her to try and get the lead coming out of the gate.
2-NO NO NINA going out for the Christopher Clement Barn taking a huge drop down in class which is a big question mark, but get Tyler Gaffalione aboard and a significant class relief
4- SHELL BEACH PARTY is getting back on the turf were last time out it got taking off the grass, 3 Starts back going this distance she got nipped at the wire and finished 2nd by a nose. Might be an excellent horse to play in exacta's and she could be an upset in here.
MY PICKS: 6-7-4-2
7- BRIELLA going out for the yates barn with Vazquez aboard this dynamic duo has been on fire lately with 2-year-olds. She is also a full sister to Cajun Firecracker, who won the Dr. Fager as a 2-year-old. 8-1 Morning line very live here!
WESLEY WARD is sending out two here, 2- THAROS which they purchased for 275k and gets Tyle Gaffalione aboard, and 4 GEM THIEF with Irad Ortiz Jr Aboard with having some excellent workouts in the morning which they bought for 85k at the sales. Wesley ward is known for getting two-year-olds ready to run but lately have been falling short of the winning circle. I prefer the 4 out of these two.
3 -PRINCESS SECRET going out for the Daniel Pita Barn getting Luis Saez aboard this 2-year-old filly with some excellent works in the morning can be dangerous here at a reasonable price 8-1 morning line.
MY PICKS- 7-4-3-5
5- STORMY BOSS- Cutting back to preferred distance where she was beaten by a neck 2 starts back going this distance. 3 out of 5 lifetime in the money over this course as well as 3 for 5 in the money going the distance. Should stalk this field and be right in the thick of things. MY PICK
3 -CHIC AND SEXY finished 2nd last time out at this level being 22-1 beating the 1 and 7 horse in this race. second time out running at this level as well as going out for the Cayetano Cadahia Barn. 5 for 10 in the money going this distance. Not too much speed in this race where I can see Burgos taking this horse wire to wire.
1- TAKE CHARGE AGAIN – 2ND time off the drop at this level, Last time out had a real bad start was out of the race before it even started. 2 out of 4 times in the money over this track and 5 for 5 in the money going this distance. Dylan Davis Getting the call to ride. Going to be tough to beat.
MY PICK- 5-3-1-2
RACE 4: 12 -CARIBBEAN KITTEN ships in from Fair Grounds going out for the Michael maker barn who owns excellent metrics with Gulfstream Park Ship ins. Especially in maiden claiming company with Irad Ortiz Jr aboard. Last time out finished 3rd by 3 lengths for maiden 30k. Might try and take the lead here with their not being a lot of speed in this race. Going to be tough to beat dropping in for 16k today.
10 -VEER Getting drop down in class where she finished 4th by 1 ½ length over this surface on April 3rd with being on the rail in the 1 post in an 11 horse field. Think will run big here with getting rider change to Jaramillo
8 -MISSANDEI 4-year-old filly getting her second start of her Career, where she ran pretty good on her debut run at this level going a mile finishing 4th by only 2 ½ lengths and improving down the stretch. The stretch out to a 1 1/16 will best suit her. Should be right in the thick of things,
5 -GARNER STATE PARK 3rd time out at this level where she finished 2nd and 3rd only losing by one length in both attempts. Pletcher/ Saez duel should be right in the thick of things
