Another #gullet shot scratched for the Ductor Wednesday. Gulfstream Park is trying to hold us back. At least we were able to get Perhaps Tonight Home at a measly 8/5. The train continues onward. Skip.

Race 1: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.Mdn 53k

#5 Heathguard (6/1) – He made an eye catching middle move in his debut. He circled the field behind a slow pace and flattened out in the final 1/16. This morning line looks high, but we might get 4/1 running for a small barn. The Ductor sees him he’s the most likely winner.

#1 Quick Quick Whit (8/1) – This colt has shown competence on dirt at Gulfstream and now switches to turf for the first time. He’s bred for both surfaces and this is what trainer Michael Trombetta does best. Moving 130 runners to turf for the first time, he’s 20% with a +$1.56 ROI.

#4 Ensign Skip (12/1) – He’s another 1st time time turfer that can inject value into this race. He’s bred for the lawn and has strangely only run on synthetic and dirt thus far. He’s working well and should improve making his first start as a 3-year-old. Trainer Laura Cazares is 3/14 with a +$1.96 ROI with 1st time grass runners. How could the Ductor not include Skip?

Race 8: 7 Furlongs. OC 75000n1x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Great Navigator (4/1) – This colt is working well off the layoff and gets a nice outside draw. His stakes race at Saratoga last summer got he Ductor’s attention. He was blocked on the rail and ate kickback before he angled out and re-rallied for 2nd. He showed the grit he Ductor likes to see, he knows a great pilot when he sees one.


Race 9 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 84k

#1 Make the Boys Wink (9/2) – This filly got a nice rail trip in her debut on turf, but she still showed a nice late kick behind a slow pace. She’s worked well since her last dirt effort and now getting back to the Gulfstream turf here, she’s the one to beat.
