Superfecta Sunday at Gulfstream

The horse racing weekend is capped off with Superfecta Sunday.  Today we examine a nice Turf mile at gorgeous Gulfstream Park.

Gulfstream Park Race 8 {1 mile~TURF~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Allowance}
A fine field of nine fillies and mares will step onto the grass for this allowance feature.  The race comes up short on pure speed, but is high on tactical speed.  A number of gals in here are capable of the victory with closely matched speed numbers.  Our task is to pick the best four to assemble our 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#4 Scenario Analysis (Lezcano / C. Brown) is the deserved favorite with the second highest last out speed number in a longer route, a two race progression, and four steady workouts.  She has the tactical speed to get the job done.

#8 Star Torina (Prado / Mott) will challenge with the highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and four modest workouts.  She is another that can show speed as well as press the pace.

#9 Spinning Wildcat (Castellano / Bush) comes back to race after an extended layoff.  Her last out was a longer route over synthetic surface at Keeneland, but she has raced well over the grass.  Among this group she holds the fourth highest last out speed number, was working a three race progression, and has put in four good, peaking workouts.  She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Annie Russell (Rocco / Arnold) should be in the game with the third highest last out speed number at a longer route, a three race progression, and two quality workouts.  She can be expected to exploit her pressing/tracking style to solid advantage.
