Stakes Saturday at Gulfstream Park

We engage in our Stakes Saturday with a good Turf contest at magnificent Gulfstream Park.

Gulfstream Park Race 8 {Tropical Park Derby~1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year old~Stakes}
A very good crop of twelve three year-olds will gallop over the grass in this featured stakes race. It appears half the field is made up of speed which should make for a scintillating pace. The speed figs are comparable which adds to the intrigue. Additionally, all but three will be firing fresh after brief layoffs. It should one of the better races of the day.

#9 Smooth Daddy (Castellano / Albertrani) could wire this field it he can hold off the other speedsters in this race. He holds the highest last out speed number at a longer route and has put in three dynamic workouts. This son of Scat Daddy loves the Turf, especially the Gulfstream green posting the second highest speed number over it.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#8 Daddy's Kid (Dunkelberger / Nagle) will pose a challenge with a couple of very good last out races coupled with two superb workouts. Another progeny of Scat Daddy look for him to be closing swiftly in the stretch. He has posted three victories at the distance from four starts.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#2 Other Cheek (Leparoux / Delacour) should contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two fabulous workouts.

#10 Roman Approval (I. Ortiz / Maker) is a worthy challenger with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and three hearty workouts. This son of Roman Ruler should be forwardly placed ready to pounce into the stretch. He has scored a victory at this distance in his only start at same.
