Saturday's third race at Gulfstream features a field of six three-year-olds who could become Derby contenders with a strong performance in the 1 1/8-mile test. Read More
  • arazi · This is a deep allowance and any of these could step up in here. Shadow Warrior could be tough in here, but I'm curious to see what El Grayling does around two turns. He ran very well against Brethren at Churchill and ran a deceptively good fourth while wide last time. · 1169 days ago ·

Strike Oil has a speed over stamina pedigree and should do well over all surfaces. His sire gets mainly precocious sprinters, but he gets some oomph from damsire Silver Deputy and French Group 1 winning second damsire Val De Lorne. Strike Oil is a half-brother to a stakes winner, his dam is a full sister to Queen’s Plate winner Archer’s Bay and the second dam Adorned was a stakes winner at 1 ¼ miles.
