Thursday's Best Bet: Boyson back on turf at Golden Gate Fields

September 25, 2019 09:10pm
Thursday’s 7th race from Golden Gate Fields is a $20,000 maiden claiming event for 3-year-olds and up traveling one mile on the turf course (Post Time - 7:20 p.m. ET).


#6 BOYSON (4-1) removes blinkers and returns to turf, and Steve Miyadi shows a +ROI with shippers and with his second after the claim starters. His only turf try was a 6th place finish vs. $62.5k maiden claimers at Del Mar July 18, and the top three finishers from that heat were next-out winners. 


#4 Elusive Flame (7-2) moved to the John Martin barn and finished a solid 2nd in a $12.5k Santa Rosa flat mile turf race Aug. 4, and the show finisher was a next-out winner. He showed speed and faded in a $16k all-weather route last time. He is back on turf and might sit a decent stalking trip.


#5 Papa Joe (5-2) invades from Southern California for excellent shipping trainer Andrew Lerner (2-for-5 at Golden Gate). He has mostly been facing better and might fit with these. 


#2 Luck Is My Name (6-1) ran his best race in his lone route try on all-weather ground Jan. 25. He returned with a pair of unplaced efforts in local all-weather sprints, and might be ready to route again in his third start after a layoff. Dam has produced a turf winner, and he is interesting if he handles turf. 


#3 Mad At Money (5-1) is 0-for-10 with one runner-up finish. He owns the best late pace ratings and might be able to get a piece of this.
