Today’s tenth race (1/13) at Gulfstream Park is the 25th running of the $100,000 Gr. III Hal’s Hope.  This contest will feature four year olds and upward running a mile over the dirt course.

#9 – Pants On Fire (5-1) – Will be making his first start since November 17th where he finished sixth in the Delta Mile.  The Jump Start horse has some nice works since then and will be looking for a rebound race.  Pants On Fire has two wins and one second from four career starts traveling a mile.  Paco Lopez gets the mount on the Kelly Breen trainee.

Next on my list is the five horse Delegation (4-1).  The Speightstown gelding has eight career starts and has yet to finish off the board for trainer Mark Casse.  Delegation was last seen finishing second behind Csaba in the Harlans Holiday stakes back on December 16th.  John Velazquez will be in the irons today.

#2 – Associate (6-1) could have his hat in the ring as well for trainer Rick Dutrow.  The Wando horse has never finished off the board at this distance and is very good coming off a layoff.   Joel Rosario will be up in the saddle today.

#10 – Pool Play (15-1) was last seen finishing eighth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic back on November 3rd.  The millionaire by Silver Deputy is used to running longer so the distance should not be a problem.  Pool Play is also trained by Mark Casse and Miguel Mena will be the jock today.

$3 Exacta 9-5 / 10-2

$.20 Superfecta Key     5/9, 4/5/9/10, 2/5/6/10, 2/6/10

Good luck w/Pants On Fire. I have 5 across on him. Pants On Fire, Associate, Soldat, Scatman.
Thanks Jarrod! I thought this was a tough race he could definitely be in there for sure. He has some good recent works I wonder if the distance is right. Only raced twice in 2012 and both on turf. Last time he went from turf to dirt though he won. Should be a good race.
Good luck with your play, Josh. What did you think about Soldat? He was my Derby horse in 2011 and I always wish him well. I do not blame McLaughlin for giving conventional dirt another whirl.
