Smart Choice Stable’s 3-year-old filly Ultimate Class went wire-to-wire to break her maiden over the Gulfstream Park turf course on Jan. 15 for trainer George Weaver. She comes back Friday as one of the choices in the featured eighth race, an allowance going one mile over the course.

Jockey Jeremy Rose gets a return call on Ultimate Class in the field of nine with two others entered ‘main track only’ by their connections. Ultimate Class is a Kentucky-bred daughter of During purchased for a modest $20,000 at the OBS August yearling sales. She finished fifth over a ‘muddy’ track going seven furlongs at Philadelphia Park on Nov. 1 in her only start before winning at Gulfstream.

Trainer Frank Alexander sends Keep It a Secret, a contender he owns himself, with jockey Javier Castellano named to ride. Purchased for $50,000 at the OBS February 2-year-old sales, the chestnut daughter of Thunder Gulch won her only start going five furlongs on the main track at Belmont Park on June 17.

Also certain to attract support is Waterville Lake Stable’s Strike It Rich with Joe Bravo aboard for trainer Christophe Clement. The roan/gray daughter of Unbridled’s Song was a $350,000 Saratoga yearling purchase and was impressive breaking her maiden on turf at Calder on Nov. 22 by four lengths. She came back in the ‘off the turf’ Sweetest Chant Stakes here on Jan. 17, finishing fifth to Sassy Temper.

Completing the field for Friday’s race are Dixiana Stables’ Sparky’s Dream, Kent Desormeaux; Alex Rankin’s Sea Road, Cornelio Velasquez; Galloping Acres Farm’s Star of the Town, Luis Arango; Joseph Arango’s For Terina, Luis Saez; Kevin Dole’s Tres Leches, Manuel Aguilar; and William Clifton, Jr.’s Kitty in a Tizzy, Rajiv Maragh.

Lori and George Hall’s Never Quicker and Homewrecker Stable’s Aregulationhottie are the ‘main track only’ entrants.
