Happy Saturday Everyone !! Man do we have a Great Day of Racing today!! Check out Double G Picks and Tips of the DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Race 6 Churchill Downs
8 SPANISH KINGDOM ( LONG SHOT) I would consider looking at this one for W/P/S as well as Exacta, Trifecta, and Superfecta Bets.
Going out for Joe Sharp who is having a real nice meet so far at Churchill Downs with running 7 horses so far with 1 running 2nd, 4 running 3rd and 1 4th. Most of them were long shots.
Spanish Kingdom Gets back on the turf today with Hernandez back aboard who won with him 2 back going a mile on the Grass.
Churchill Downs 7th Race The Winning Colors Stakes Grade 3
The Favorites in this one should be the 2 Break Even and 8 Mia Mishief
2 Break Even going out for Brad Cox with Joel Rosario Aboard Should be Gunning for the lead in the 2 Spot. Joel knows where to place horses to win.
8 Mia Mischief going for 4th win in a Row For Steve Asmussen with Santana Jr Aboard( Dynamic Duo) Going to be tough to beat but I would not overlook some of these other horses in here
1 Sneaking out - going 2nd time out for Jerry Hollendorfer with getting Jose Ortiz Aboard coming off a victory at Oaklawn Park going 6 furlongs in an allowance of 68k 2 for 2 lifetimes going this distance. Should be Stalking the Speed here 8 for 9 in the money lifetime. Think she takes another big step up today!
4- Bells The one - Getting back to the dirt after running last time on the turf at Fairgrounds. Will be closing on strong so if there is a fast past upfront should have a real good shot in her. She ran against Break even in the past over this track in the 8BELLES G2 Finishing 2nd
She also ran against Bellafina who put on a hell of a performance a couple of weeks ago in Santa Anita
5 Unique Factor (Long Shot) She can be very dangerous in here going 1st time out for the Peter Miller Barn. It looks like she was a private purchase after running real nice in her last couple outing. I expect her to take a big step up today with having some really nice works and being able to stalk the speed.
Churchill Downs 11TH Race The Old Forester Mint Julep Grade 3 Stakes
There is no real big speed in this race with a big field of 14. I think we will see 14 Mitchell Road Possible try and come out of the 14 spot and try and get over and Grab the lead and try and be forwardly places for Trainer Will Mott with Joe Talamo getting the call today. Is 6 out of 6 in the money going this distance. As well as Brad Cox Sends out to in here that are both coming off Long layoffs and are stuck on the rail in this big field of with the 1 Juliet Foxtrot coming off running 3rd last time out in Santa Anit Back in December ion the Grade 1 MATRIARC. The Stable 2 Mat Beau Recall will be right beside her. She is 1 for 1 over this surface and over her last 8 starts have finished either 1st or 2nd coming off her last race back in September in Santa Anita in the Grade 1 RodeoDr. Chad Brown Also send out two in here as well with the 6 Nay Lady Nay who we saw in November here at Churchill in the GRAD 2 MRSRVERE where she won scoring a 92 buyer. Her Stable Mat 8 Altea also has the same closing running style finishing 2nd last time out at Fairfounds in the TBENSENMMB100K Race Finishing behind the 4 in here 4-She’sonthewarpath who is my main pick in this field being 20-1 and being 8 for 11 in the money lifetime 2 for 3 at this distance and 1 for 2 over this surface! I think she sits mid-pack in this big field and takes a big upset in this one today!
MY PIKCS 4-6-8-1 Also like the 10 in here but will be seeing how the board plays out before race time but the main pick in here is long shot 4 She’sonthewarpath
SANTA ANITA 7TH RACE THE HONEYMOON GRADE 3
A lot of these fillies are coming out of the 106k China Doll Race. I think the 9 Stela Star Put on great united states Debut getting off to a slow start and closing strong being 6 wide. Will be the horse to beat in here I think and my main Pick. The 4 Laura’s Light right now morning line is the co Favorite which will be battling it out for the lead in here with the 8 Parkour. I would also keep an eye out for the 6 little bird in here where they do not put in the program but she got into a lot of traffic coming around the bend with such a big field and never really had a chance to run. I also like the 7 Red Lark who finished 5th by only 1 length in that race she stretches back out to a 1 mile and eight where she won 2 back. Very Dangerous in here.
MY PICKS 9-7-6-5-4
PICKS OF THE DAY GULFSTREAM MAY 30, 2020
PICK OF THE DAY AT Gulfstream -4TH RACE 11 Ocean Air
2-POLICY OPTION Comes off the bench for the Chad Brown barn after running the last 2 starts in saratoga in August. Comes back listed as a Gelded is the sun of Empire Maker with some nice works in the morning Irad Ortiz Jr stays aboard Aboard. Trainer Chad Brown is 47% with similar class drops.
4Time For Trouble- Comming off the 3-month layoff for the Todd Pletcher Barn with adding blinkers has some nice works and 1st career race ran a 71 buyer at Belmont back in July. Todd Pletcher is 32% with this type of class drop

11 BATTALION Can try and set the pace here where he did 3 back for Will Mott and Zayes aboard finishing 3rd by 2 lengths going a mile and a sixteenth.I like the cut back to a mile and 1st time in for tag today.
5 RESERVIST 3-year-old colt out of More than Ready makes his debut today for John Servis with some nice works in the morning and bred for the turf going long was purchased for 385k.
10 Nathan’s Secret(LONG SHOT) Can be a long shot in here that could be right in the thick of things with coming off last race over at Gulfstream west going 7 ½ having a steady gain finishing 3rd by 2 lengths adds blinkers today and has some nice works in the morning. Might need a race under his belt off a layoff but could be worth a shot if he goes off at a decent price.
Race 2 - 2-Year-Olds going 5 furlongs as you know i always like to make a last-minute decision on who I like on top in these races after seeing them warm-up before the race.
7 GRUNTLED 2-year-old son of Run Happy (Multiple Grade 1 winning dirt sprinter )who
was purchased for 230k has some really nice works in the morning. Servis Barn can possibly Start the day with an early double with getting go-to jockey aboard Paco Lopez.
6- FULMINI Son of Overdriven debuting for the Michael Maker Barn with Irad Ortiz Jr Aboard never can count this dynamic duo out. Some really nice works in the morning.
4- TRICK SHOT a gelded son of Cajun Breeze, and half-brother to Zimba Warrior, who was Grade 3 stakes-placed at age 2. Dynamic Duo Trainer Micheal Yates/ Miguel Vasquez aboard who started off 2020 red hot with 1st-time starters.
2- BIG DADDY DAVE making his debut for the Ralph Nicks, who is 25% with his freshman runners, with red hot Jockey Emisael Jaramillo aboard.
BOOMER- sire clicks with 11% off juvenile debut runners, Juan Alvarado barn has been having some good success lately with his 1st-time starters. Get go-to jockey aboard Zayes and been training really well in the morning.
NORWITNA RIVER coming off a real nice race last time out going 6 fourloings being very wide throughout and closing strong with just missing at the wire, Gets the stretch out to a mile which will give her the ground she needs to get the job done.
NOTHINS FRE going 2nd time off the claim for Richard Arnold Who will be Gunning for the lead and try and wire this field being the main speed in here. Is 4 out of 4 in money going this distance. Who is also gets a little drop in weight with Fuentes aboard and a nice work in the am on May 3rd.
2 GRACE’S DRAMA Going out for Trainer/ Owner Don Swick. Who is 14 out of 17 in the money over this surface and 14 out of 20 in the money going this Distance during her career.I think she bounces back today with a good race as you see in past races will bounce back off a ba race.
Race 4 - Tough Race
The Clement Barn sending out 2 in here with the
12 OCEAN AIR( PICK OF DAY)I Have been waiting for this 3-year-old filly to run back after the last outing on March 8th on her debut having to angel 5 wide and was closing on strong just missing by ¾ of a length for the win. The Clement Barn has been trying to run her back before today but races have been getting taking off the Turf. Gets Leading Jockey Ortiz Jr aboard today who i think will run lights out today!
8- UNDER THE OAKS making her 3-year-old Debut out of American Pharaoh and purchased for 375k. Nice works in the morning and gets go-to jockey while running horses at Tampa Sammy Camacho aboard.
3 NORTH BROADWAY, a $750,000 daughter of Quality Road, is making her first start since finishing 4th behind next-out Grade 3 The Very One winner Elizabeth Way here in January. Trainer Chad Brown is 35% with maidens making their 2nd start will be very tough in here.
11 TIZ AFFAIR is making her 4-year-old debut after showing promise in her 7-furlong career debut on the Woodbine turf in which she was 3rd – beaten a half-length. Mark Casse Barn gets Edgard Zayas up and should be running for the lead.
10 - is Another Daughter of American Pharoh Making her 4th career start after scoring best buyer figure in her last 71 going a mile over this surface which was pressured for the lead and finished 5th by 3 lengths. Wesley Ward Barn has had much success so far with Horses out of American Pharoh.
1 STARSHIP MALLOMAR(Long Shot) I think this 3-year-old filly has been overlooked in this race due to how many nice fillies are in here. 2 back was her first time debuting on the turf where she only lost by 3 lengths going a mile being 6 wide. She does have a tough post position but i think she should be closing on strong and be right in the thick of things in here.
1 Suz and the 7 Royally Cool should both be knocking heads and gunning for the lead in here. Which I think can set this race up nice for many others like
2 Tuesdays Rose whos is 7 out of 11 in the money going this distance.
4 Baby Ice Taking drop down in class and scoring a 70 buyer 2 back finishing 3rd and being very wide throughout who has faced and beaten a couple of these horse in the past.
Sala Rita- if she runs like she did 2 back and stalks this speed should be right in the thick of things with getting Fuentes back aboard. Should be a decent price.
Gilda F- Also can be a decent price in here and if she runs back to how she ran 2 back finishing 2nd behind Baby ice can be right in the thick of things.
Race 6 -
4- Fiamma Mamma should be gunning for the lead here to try and wire this field after setting a pressured pace in her last outing and finishing 2nd.
7- For Kicks is going Turf to Dirt here never ran on the dirt before but with the Dropdown in class and cut back to a preferred 1-mile distance. As well as having a nice work on the dirt i think she will run god over the dirt today. - Taking a shot with her today should be a decent price.
Union Lane Going out for Trainer Owner Daniel Pita Who finished 3rd in the slop last time out behind Fiamma Mamma. Will have a fast track and be tough to beat winning 2 back when stretching out to this distance over a fast track scoring a 58 buyer with Miguel Vasquez in the irons that day and gets back aboard today.
MY PICKS - 7-1-4-6
1 Gioielli is going to be tough to beat in here going 1st time off the claim for Jose D’angelo with getting Ird Ortiz Jr Aboard and should be Gunning for the lead or nice front spotted coming out of the rail in the 1 spot. Being 2 out of 3 in the money going this distance and 3 out of 4 in the money over this surface. Should be favorite in here
7 Say Adios is my pick in here. Going 2nd time off the bench with stretching back out to 6 furlongs (1 for 1) and drop down to 12500 after finishing 2nd last time out off a long layoff going 5 furlongs. 4 out of 5 times in the money over the surface and 4 out of 6 lifetime in the money. MY PICK
Poseidons Princess - is stepping up to face winners after setting the pace and holding on gamely to win her $10,000 career debut by a nose. Should be right in the thick of things here.
