Stakes Saturday in Sunny Florida

Down in sunny Florida is where we go for the Turf is good on Stakes Saturday.

Gulfstream Park Race 11 {El Prado Stakes~7 1/2 furlongs~TURF~3 year-old Up~Stakes}

The complexion of this race changed dramatically with the defection of two solid contenders. There is plenty of speed to produce a frothy pace. Speed numbers are super close which should make for a highly competitive event. It should be a very exciting race.

#1 Aztec Brave [FR] (Lanerie / Sharp) might have a slight edge with the highest last out speed number at a mile route and a two race progression. He has the tactical speed to go with the pace flow and turn it up a notch going into the stretch. This son of Pyrus is 100% in the money at this distance from seven starts.
$1 WIN  /  $2 SHOW.

#4 Victory Exchange (Castellano / J. Carroll) could challenge while attempting his first Turf effort. He holds the third highest (tie) last out speed number and has put in two sound workouts. His top of the line connections give a good shot in this field. This son of Exchange Rate should be tracking the pace ready to strike.
$1 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#10 Reporting Star (Vasquez / Parente) should contend with the fourth highest last out speed number at a route and one determined workout. He should be forwardly placed ready to roll. This son of Circular Quay holds the second highest speed number at the distance.

#3 Plainview (Bravo / Jacobson) should be in the hunt with the second highest last out speed number at a mile route and three quick peaking workouts. This lad will show speed from the gate. This son of Street Cry [IRE] holds two victories at this distance.
