Wednesday’s 9th race from Gulfstream Park is an optional claiming event for fillies and mares dashing five panels on the turf course (Post Time 4:30 p.m. ET).
#1 DEFY EXPECTATIONS (6-1) rediscovered her sharp form in her last three turf sprints. The early-pressing filly should be competitive throughout at this speed friendly distance.
#9 Tracy Ann’s Legacy (3-1) finished in the top three in all six local turf starts and won two of those races. She has the speed to succeed and Paco Lopez will probably send her to the front.
#3 Catch a Thrill (8-5) ran well in all four local turf sprint starts. She landed the place in five of her last six turf sprints and projects a stalking trip.
#5 Sanity (4-1) owns competitive numbers and exits a decent runner-up finish in a turf sprint at Monmouth. The versatile mare has not had much success in four starts at this course and distance.
#4 Lady Boss (20-1) is back in the Elizabeth Dobles barn and she was right there in a pair of local special weight turf sprints earlier this year. She adds blinkers and should be forwardly placed.
