We go to the Turf for Stakes Saturday

On this Stakes Saturday we venture to sunny Florida for some Turf action.

Gulfstream Park Race 8 {El Prado~7 1/2 Furlongs~TURF~3 year old Up~Stakes}
A hearty field of nine will go to the green in this feature stakes race. There are enough speedsters and forwardly placed types to ignite a decent pace.  All speed numbers closely resemble one another. It should be a fantastic race.

#7 Mshawish (Castellano / Pletcher) should get a nice pace to run into. He holds the second highest last out speed number at a route, a four race progression, and two dynamic workouts.  This son of Medaglia d'Oro should track the pace in good position, ready to fly.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#1 Excaper (Rosario / Black) will challenge with the fourth highest last out speed number and four superb workouts during a brief freshening. This son of Exchange Rate should be one of the forwardly placed types seeking to hold sway. He loves this distance.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#8 Midnight Cello  (Bocachica  / Vitali) should contend with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and three dynamite peaking workouts.  This son of Midnight Lute is another that will be tracking the pace looking for the right opening.
$1 SHOW.

#11 Fredericksburg (Saez / Matz) is in fine form and will compete well in this group. He holds the third highest last out speed number and has put in two stout workouts.  This son of Speightstown has a versatile running style to fit whatever the tempo of the race will be. 

10 CENT Superfecta

#7 Mshawish  /  #1 Excaper   / #8 Midnight Cello  /  #11 Fredericksburg.
