Animal Kingdom in the Gr. I Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap

Amount Bet:
Amount Cashed:


Today’s eighth race (2/9) at Gulfstream Park is the 30th running of the $300,000 Gr. I Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap.  This race will consist of four year olds and upward running a mile and an eighth over the sod.

#6 – Animal Kingdom (8-5) is the morning line favorite and will likely remain so once the gate opens.  The Leroidesanimaux horse has a career record of 9-4-4-0 with his only off the board finish coming in the Gr. I Belmont Stakes back in 2011.  Animal Kingdom has been firing dome nice works as of last and will have Joel Rosario in saddle.

#4 – Unbridled Command (15-1) was last seen winning the Hollywood Derby back on November 25th and will be looking for six wins in a row today.  Javier Castellano will get the mount on the grey today.

#3 – Salto (4-1) has not raced since the El Prado back here on December 22nd where he finished third behind Nikki’s Sandcastle and Kharafa.  The Pivotal horse has never tried this distance on the turf so we will see if he has the stamina and class against this bunch.  Joe Bravo will ride Salto.

#2 – Point of Entry (9-5) will be taking a lot of money here as well for trainer Claude McGaughey.  The son of Dynaformer won three straight Grade One races last year before finishing a close second in the Breeders’ Cup Turf back on November 3rd.  Distance could be the question for this horse today as he seems to like the mile and a half.  John Velazquez will re take his mount on Point of Entry.



$40 win on 6

Might break slow and not get up in time. I think I'll try a hypothetical tri: 2/6/1. Good luck everyone
AK at a playable 4-5.
AK is a horse who must BREAK DOWN in order to not hit the exacta. Currently, at 3-5, I'll take that. His place pool is playable.
why wager on that big an underlay. WATCH the race, pat yourself on the back that you figured it out (along with 3/4 of the crowd) and take you money out of a big risk little return situation...Not a smart wager.
Animal Kingdom 1/9... crazy! I think I'll be 2/1/6
Yea, I have Animal Kingdom here as well. $80 Win, $160 Place. Good luck dude.
