Gulfstream Park May 22, 2020 Selections:
RACE 2: #12 GOLDEN PAL (BEST BET)- horse finally gets to start on the turf, where he belongs! His dam Lady Shipman was a turf sprinter specialist and even ran 2nd in the Breeders Cup! Lady Shipman ran a total of 21 times and finished first in 13 of those starts with just under $1 million in earnings! All systems go for this 2 year old by Uncle Mo.
RACE 4: #11 TWENTY FOUR SEVEN - Saffie claimed this horse for $16k back in February. He ran a winning race in his first start off the claim. Now Saffie brings this 7 year old back with a bit a class relief in the $12.5k claiming race. Twenty Four Seven ran in the Arlington Million back in 2018, so this one has tons of backclass. Saffie wins claiming races 30% of the time and when he brings a horse back with a layoff of between 31-60 days, Saffie has a $2.41 ROI with 28% win percentage.
RACE #5: #8 SUNDOWN KID (LONGSHOT SPECIAL)- 15/1 Longshot has been training lights leading up to his return race in 2020. First time Rajiv in the saddle and has a real shot to upset this field at big odds in this wide open bottom level maiden claimer.
