Along with the wagers below.
Gulfstream Race 5: $100,000 Claiming Crown Distaff Dash
#10 Jakarta- Horse to beat and should be pace setter which is where you want to
#11 Precocious Peach- Will stalk and could be a factor at a decent price as
long as the #3 and #10 don't get away.
#3 Sweet Yare N Dira- Could be out front as well. Won't find a more aggressive
jockey then Paco Lopez which will be an advantage here.
$5 Ex 10/3,11
$1 Tri Box 3,10,11
$6 Win 11
#10 Jakarta has been running in Grade 2 & 3 races so I think these
horses will be a little easier. The only
negative is that there appears to be a lot of speed in the race.
$12.00 to win #10
$2.00 Exacta- #10 / 2, 7, 9
$1.00 Exacta box 2, 7, 9, 10
#10 Jakarta – Mike Maker turf improvement horse like Zulu Alpha. Great race a
Kentucky Downs then 2 grade stakes races after. There is a lot of speed in this
race and they should go :21plus. There is a lot of speed in this race, but she
should make the lead. Try and catch.
$20 to Win on #10
$2 exacta box 3-7-8-10
The favorite, #10 Jakarta looks hard to beat but... she's not won outside the 5 post
in the last year. Going to go with the upset here with #3 Sweet Yare N Dira.
$10 to win in #3 Sweet Yare N Dira
$2 exacta 3,10/3,7,9,10,11
Gulfstream Race 6: $150,000 Claiming Crown Jewel Stakes
#7 Dack Janiels- Has been all over at different track and against strong
competition. Keeps improving has speed and was impressive last race finishing
3rd at 53 to 1 only 2 lengths behind Rocketry.
#3 Treasure Trove - has the next best shot to beat the big favorite.
#2 Jesus' Team- Will be the big favor and will be there at the end.
$20 win #7
$5 Ex 3,7/2
$2 Tri 2/3,7/3,7
#2 - Jesus' Team has been running in Grade 1 & 2 races including
running 2nd in the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile.
$10.00 Exacta- #2 / 3, 4
$2.00 Exacta box 2, 3, 4
#3 Treasure Trove – another Mike Maker special and this is even better because
they just claimed this horse for this race. Yes, Jesus' Team is the one to beat
but if he is not close to the lead then it's someone else's race. Look a price.
$2 Exacta box 2-3-6-7 - look for the price on top or the favorite finishing
This is the easiest company #2 Jesus' Team has faced in a while, but not sure
the track/distance/surface fits hits running style. If, BIG IF, #7 Dack
Janiel's can rerun his last race, he wins EZ. Also think defending champ #5 Leitone
should be bunch better in his second start off the break.
$3 exacta 2,7/1,2,5,7
$2 trifecta 2,7/1,2,5,7/1,2,5,7
Gulfstream Race 7: $95,000 Claiming Crown Emerald Stakes
#2 Artie's Humor - likes the distance, likes the turf, gets Irad can we really
#11 Over the Channel - Another one that likes this situation turf, track, and
distance. 5 out of 6 in exacta at Gulfstream. 15 to 1 with Paco and the running
style you might need in this race
#4 Temple -Always seems to be right there. Been facing some really tough
horses. Tyler Gaffalione has been on fire of late.
$20 win #2
$6 win #11
$1 exacta box 2,4,11
$1 trifecta box 2,4,11
#4 – Temple is my selection as he can win either by going close to the pace
or come from behind. He just missed in his last race finishing 2nd by a ½
length. He loves the track and distance with a good Jockey-Trainer Combo.
$10.00 to win & Place #4
$2.00 Exacta- #4 / 6, 9, 11
$1.00 Exacta box 2, 7, 9, 10
#2 Artie's Rumor – ok, Mike Maker is going to have a good day. Claimed for 40k
and then won by a neck in the next race at Keeneland. Having Irad Ortiz up
helps. The work of :59.61 says to me ready to go.
$12 Win on #2
$1 Exacta Box of 2-4-5-7-9
This is a competitive race. Looking for an edge, I focused on horses for the
course: #4 Temple (GP line 8: 4-2-2), #9 Muggsamatic (GP line 4: 2-2-0) and #10
High Noon Rider (GP line: 9: 5-1-1).
