Gulfstream Park Race 11: $1 Million Pegasus World Cup
Turf Invitational Stakes – Grade I
Top pick #6 Largent - Love this horse always right there never finished worst
then second out of 9 races and has 6 wins, 2 of those 3 runner up finishes were
by less than a head. Has won 4 out of 5 races at Gulfstream. How did this horse
go off at 16-1 last time? I would love if we really get the ML of 9/2 here.
Can't go wrong with having Paco Lopez riding him for the second straight race.
Others to Use-#8 Anothertwistafate- Should be part of the
pace or right off of it. Only 3rd start on the turf won the last one. Has been
running against will tough competition. I like playing jockey Joel Rosario on
#12 Social Paranoia- Always comes flying at the end. My
concern as far as winning would be is there enough pace in here? I still would
want to use this horse in exotics as it seems no matter what the pace is he
will be there at the end to get a piece.

#6 - Largent is improving in each race and is going for a hat trip trying
to win a 3rd race in a row. He has a great jockey/trainer combination -
#11 – Say the Word has the most experience at the distance.
He just missed his last time out.
#12 – Social Paranoia loves the track. He has been working
well leading up to this race.

#8 Anothertwistafate bred for the turf but ran on dirt and all-weather to start
career. Last 2 on the turf with on an ok 4th then a winning result. I think
this horse will be on the lead because I don't see any other speed in this race
and Joel Rosario with gives horses a measured ride. This is a race with old
pros and the younger ones that are improving. Interesting race.

Todd Pletcher has three-horses in this race and put the top jockey Irad Ortiz,
Jr. on #6 Colonel Liam. The duo wins at more than 30% together. The other two
aren't bad either.

Gulfstream Park Race 12: $3 Million Pegasus World Cup
Invitational Stakes – Grade I
Top pick- #10 Code of Honor- I can't imagine everybody leaves the #4 Knicks Go
completely free on the lead like what is projected. Remember jockeys and
trainers handicap too it just takes one horse disrupt the plan of the #4. If
they do leave him go can he get the distance? I will go with another classy and
battle tested horse in the #10. The horse is always there and with his running
style the post shouldn't hurt him too much. He has had decent success at
Gulfstream with a win and a 3rd in 3 starts.
Others to Use: #1 Sleepy Eyes Todd - This horse reminds me
of Largent, just a runner and will compete no matter the track or competition.
This horse has had nothing stay the same. The last 9 races he has run at 9
different tracks while also having 9 different jockeys. This will be the second
straight race at Gulfstream but unfortunately will have a different jockey
again. The consolation prize isn't too bad though as he will get Jose Ortiz up.
#5 Jesus' Team- Loves Gulfstream and has handled this
distance before. Will be there at the end no matter what odds he goes off at.
$30 Win #10

# 10- Code of Honor has plenty of class and is always in the mix just
missing his last race out.
#7-Tax won easily last time out and likes the distance.
# 8- Harpers First Ride has been in the money 10 out of 11
races this year wining seven of those races.
# 1- Sleepy Eyes Todd has won 50% of his races this year and
is very versatile either leading or coming from behind.

#10 Code of Honor – there appears to be 3 horses who will want the lead. If
they go to fast up front, Code of Honor will be closer to lead with cover and
catch them at the end. He made a strong bid in the Clark but the winner kept
going on. I also like the jockey change to Tyler Gaffalione.

Speed has won the first four Pegasus' races. #4 KNICKS GO and #7 TAX could be
one, two all the way around the track. #1 SLEEPY EYES TODD won't be too far
behind. #10 CODE OF HONOR has the talent, but that outside post could hurt.
