Musings From My Grade One Couch: Gulfstream Park Analysis for April 30th, 2020

11 Race card to kick off the racing week as we continue to get fat!!!

Race 1) Turf 1A Miles|3YOMd 25000(25-20)|Purse: $25k
#8)Limetini 7-2 Loved this colt in his debut and I can quite say I could have run faster! Refusing to give up on him as drops to $25 today and Saez sticks.
#11)Cardiac Kid 3-1 American Pharoah colt drops for the first time having run well in 3 turf tries. Deserved favorite.

Race 2) Dirt 4ô Furlong |2YOcMd 25000(25-20)|Purse: $33k
#2)Missing Link 4-1 Filly by superb debut sire Kantharos only has two recorded works. Owned by E Five Racing, one has to think she came from a good training center and is fit and ready!
#3)Sunshine City 7-5 Ward/ Ortiz Nuff said! Although Ward is still winless at the current meet.

Race 4)Turf 1Â Miles|3lMd 16000(16-14)|Purse: $19k Rails 96 feet
#2)Cloud Based 6-1 Added Lasix, gelded and split the field in last off a layoff dating to last June.The 1/2 brother to G1 Turfer Data Link takes another drop in class and is favorably drawn.
#11)Beach Traffic 3-1 has the best numbers leading into this and is perhaps the most reliable.
#7)Winning Factor 5-2 continues to be “close but no cigar”???

Race 5)Dirt 7 Furlongs|3lçClm 16000N3L|Purse: $20k
#8)Mystic Nile 7-2 Five-year-old mare made just her 2nd career start on dirt in her last and her 1st around one turn. She ran a massive race to be beaten just a length and a half. Perhaps this is what she has wanted to do all along.
#1) Papa’s Little Girl 9-2 Must be respected off a jaw dropping win last time.

Race 6)Turf 5 Furlongs|3lçMd Sp Wt 45k|Purse: $45k
#9)Fuddled 2-1 Terrific debut with trouble when it mattered !!!!
#8)Humor Me Dixie 6-1 Makes 2020 debut and obviously runs well fresh. Beaten just 2 lengths to eventual G1 winner Abscond. Casse teams up with Ortiz!
#3)Coin the Phrase 9-2. 3rd start off the layoff, for this speedy daughter of Goldencents.

Race 7)Turf 1 Mile|3lçClm 40000N2L|Purse: $28k
#10) I Am Magical 9-2. Trying to use this one on top of #1Bean Counter and #3 Augusta Moon as I feel they may duel on the lead and set it up for I am Magical.Will be using all 3.

Race 8)Dirt 6 Furlongs|3YOMd 50000(50-40)|Purse: $35k
#10)FastMagic 4-1 Good debut for this colt last November , well drawn on the outside looking in. Hopefully he gets off cleaner than last time.Good works leading up to this; check them out on XBTV.com
#7)Chill Haze 3-1 Stays at the level after a good run in last to be beaten a scant neck.Tyler sticks with him.

Race 9)Turf 1 Mile|3lÐOC 16k/N1X|Purse: $41k
#2) Sister Otoole 6-1 While her numbers are not as fancy as some other in here, she's a progressive filly for a progressive trainer. Comes in with an eye popping terrific work April 26.

#3)Real Doozie 6-1 Dangerous if loose on the lead.
#1)Ghostly Beauty 9-5 Deserved fav! But 0-6 at GP.

Race 10) Dirt 1 Mile|3lçOC 50k/N2X|Purse: $47k
Looking for a price here ! #Beermoney.
#8)Final Cut 10-1 Hoping she just needed that last start.Comfortably drawn on the outside, if she can transfer those numbers around one turn she may be dangerous.
#3)Crown and Sugar 10-1 Five-year-old mare makes her dirt debut, if she can dirt she surely wins this. Been working well at Tampa and again if she can get in an outside stalking spot. Saez should provide a good trip.
