Travelin Man Strong Favorite in Swale

Hutcheson Stakes winner Flashpoint opted for the Florida Derby so Travelin Man looks like one tough customer in Sunday's Grade 2 Swale Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

The Todd Pletcher trainee earned a big fig in his romping six furlong bow and was made the overwhelming favorite in the Hutcheson. He could not match strides with Flashpoint that day but finished a clear 2nd and could prove tough to catch in here. John Velazquez sticks with the speedy 3-year-old son of Trippi.

Pletcher also has Hutcheson 4th place finisher Razmataz. He owns early-pressing speed but might not want to go this far against graded company.

Black N Beauty breaks from the rail and is an interesting rebound threat for Dale Romans. He steadied at the start and was eased in a puzzling Hutcheson effort. He smartly captured a flat mile allowance race in January and set the pace before weakening in the salty Holy Bull Stakes. The son of Devil His Due sports three local drills for this and attracts solid rider Paco Lopez.

Indiano rallied for the place in his local US bow for Marty Wolfson on March 20. He captured all five of his starts in Panama and should appreciate the added real estate.

Little Drama passed tired rivals to finish a distant 3rd at 50-1 in the Hutcheson. He will have to run much better to compete for top honors and could get overbet. 

Megalith rounds out the six pack. He won a $50,000 event at Ocala (synthetic) last time but his barn is struggling at the current stand and he seems a notch below the best in here. 

The seven furlong Swale Stakes goes as the 3rd race on April 3.
