Turf Sprint Starts Our Horse Racing Weekend

We're off and running into the second horse racing weekend of the year. Today we look at a dandy Turf Sprint down in sunny Florida.

Gulfstream Park Race 8 {5 furlongs~TURF~4 year old Up~fillies/mares~Optional Claiming}
A tenacious field of nine will take to the grass in this afternoon feature. As expected, there are a number of speedsters and forwardly placed types in this Turf sprint. The speed figs come up close for each. It could be any of these gals race.

#1 Zamquick (Lanerie / Kenneally) might have the advantage with a ground saving trip as she should be forwardly placed. She holds the second highest last out speed number at a slightly longer sprint and has put in two robust workouts during a brief layoff. This gal has the tactical speed to stay with the competition.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 Indian Splendor (G. Saez / Servis) could be the favorite with the highest last out speed number at a longer sprint, a two race progression, and one peaking workout. She should be motoring on the front end seeking to hold off all challengers.

#10 Wellington's Appeal (Bocachica / Navarro) will challenge with the highest speed number at the distance and three superb workouts during a brief freshening. She has the tactical speed to see how the pace develops and then take advantage of it.

#2 Runaway Giant (Leparoux / Wilkes) could surprise with the third highest (tie) last out speed number, a three race progression, and one solid workout. Should the pace become hot, expect her to come through the stretch in fast fashion.
