Saturday's 10th race (5:05pm ET) from Gulfstream Park is the Grade III Holy Bull Stakes for 3-year-olds traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.
#2 Frac Daddy (8-1) might be the goods for McPeek, who compares the promising Scat Daddy colt to his dam sire, Skip Away. He followed up a clear place finish in his muddy debut at Big Sandy with a romping two turn graduation run under the Twin Spires. He just missed when last seen in the G2 Ky Jockey Club Stakes and is training well for this. He fits the winning profile (8.5f @ GP) as an early-pressing type breaking from one of the three inside posts.
#6 Dewey Square (12-1) easily won his first two starts in prominent throughout fashion and ended up 3rd from an outer post when last seen in the aforementioned Ky Jockey Club Stakes. Romans always seems to be a player on the Derby trail and this one fired a local bullet Jan 20.
#4 Bern Identity (4-1) had a busy juvenile campaign (6 starts) and fired Trifecta shots each time. The versatile sort could have captured the productive G3 Delta Jackpot with a different trip and drilled a bullet for this Jan 20.
#1 Shanghai Bobby (4-5) draws the advantageous inside post for his much anticipated sophomore bow. The undefeated colt earned his best two numbers around one turn at Big Sandy and showed distance limitations (slow final 1/4) in a below par renewal of the BC Juvenile. A ground saving tactical trip under regular pilot Napravnik is expected. I'll try to beat the low odds contender.
#3 Clearly Now (12-1) has the speed to succeed for quality trainer Lynch. He won his first two sprint starts before setting the pace and finishing 3rd in the Display Stakes at Woodbine. Can he handle conventional dirt?
#7 Itsmyluckyday (6-1) earned an inflated number in the GP Derby and will have to prove that effort was for real. He faces tougher two turn rivals today and he was no threat in his lone graded try against Bern Identity in the Delta Jackpot.
$13 to win #2
$1 Trifecta 2-4-6/1-2-4-6/1-2-3-4-6 ($27)
