Can Tackleberry Do It Again in GP 'Cap?

Tackleberry shoots for his third straight win when he takes on seven others in Saturday's Gulfstream Park Handicap.

Luis Olivares trains the 7-for-11 gelding and the early-pressing type is in the best form of his career. Javier Santiago takes his regular seat aboard the son of Montbrook and if he is to win again he must hold off his local rival Soaring Empire.

Soaring Empire beat his aforementioned rival at this course/distance in the Hal's Hope (G3) but he acted up in the gate and could not catch Tackleberry at seven panels on Feb 12. Jose Lezcano rides the versatile sort well and he could easily get the job done with a clean trip.

Rule was 2nd in the Hal's Hope and 3rd in the Donn (G1). He reunites with winning pilot John Velazquez and should sit a decent stalk and pounce trip in his 3rd start off the shelf.

Duke of Mischief is capable of big efforts when on his game. He checked in behind Tackleberry in the Sunshine Millions Classic on Jan 29 and won the Ft Lauderdale (G3), Oaklawn Handicap (G3), and Iselin (G3) last year. Joe Bravo gets the call.

Our Dark Knight placed in four minor stakes events in 2010 and smartly captured his optional claiming return at this course/distance Jan 22. Zito gives Castellano a leg up on the early-pressing 4-year-old son of Medaglia D'oro.   

Jackson Bend is back under the care of Stanley Gold and he went 5-for-6 for this barn as a juvenile. He hits the board in four graded races as a 3-year-old last year including a show finish in the Preakness (G1). He tailed off in three starts after that and looms a pace factor at the very least in his first outing in more than four months. He reunites with his favorite pilot Jeffrey Sanchez.

Kelso (G2) winner Tizway makes his first start since finishing a respectable 5th in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. He is capable of firing a fresh shot but is winless in four local tries.

Pulsion rounds out the field. The Patrick Biancone runner flopped in a local entry level race Feb 27 and appears overmatched.
