Race 9: *Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Travel Column (12/1) – What a treat to have the Grade 1 Ballerina on a Sunday, and its even better when you adore a price. This filly faced all the heavy hitters last year and had success routing, including a victory in the Fair Grounds Oaks. Now in Mott barn, they’ve cut her back to one turn, where she’s clearly best. Her prep for this spot off the layoff last time was fast and could not have been more visually impressive. Gaffalione was under a rocket ship and never let the cat out of the bag. Making her 2nd start as a 4-year-old, she looks primed to run a career best effort. The Ductor will blow her a kiss in the winners circle. Skip
