WILL PHIPPS STABLE’S FAST TALKING BE FAST RUNNING TODAY? (#3, Gulfstream R4, $50k MSW, 6f dirt, 2:05 pm ET) — Phipps Stable’s 4-year-old colt FAST TALKING is making his second career start today and looks to be primed for some fast running. He's shown positive signs in training this winter for Shug McGaughey in Florida at Payson Park Thoroughbred Training Center. He put in a bullet workout breezing 4 furlongs on dirt in 48.80 seconds (1/34) on Saturday. He finished seventh in his only career start, which was on March 17 last year in a $50,000 maiden special weight at Gulfstream with jockey Edgar Zayas. Fast Talking picks up jockey Jose L. Ortiz for his start today. Fast Talking’s impressive pedigree is full of accomplished Phipps winners, including grade I stakes winners DANCING FOREVER, SEEKING THE GOLD, OH WHAT A WINDFALL, and Hall of Famer HEAVENLY PRIZE. # # # # GET SOCIAL WITH PHIPPS STABLE FAN: Official fan page of Phipps Stable, a fourth-generation Thoroughbred barn.

CAN PHIPPS & JANNEY'S CRIME LAB SOLVE ANOTHER MYSTERY TODAY? (#8, Gulfstream R1, $32k MCL, 1 1/16 mi. turf, 8/1 ML, 12:35 pm ET) — After not racing as a four-year-old in 2018, Phipps Stable & Stuart Janney’s 5-year-old horse CRIME LAB is already making his third start of 2019 at Gulfstream Park with jockey Brian Hernandez riding. Crime Lab ended his layoff by finishing eighth in a maiden claiming race on January 11 (replay at http://bit.ly/GP011119r10). Despite coming out of the gate well and showing promise by dueled on the pace through the final turn, he didn’t have any gas left after these efforts and weakened in the final furlong to finish 6¾ lengths behind the winner. He moved forward his next time out to cross the wire in fourth place on January 23 (replay at http://bit.ly/GP012319r4). He stalked the pace on the rail in fourth place before traffic forced him to move outside for the final furlong where he finished 2¾ lengths behind the winner. After only three starts in 2017 and not racing in 2018, this determined horse has earned his way back to the starting gate to finish on the board for trainer Shug McGaughey. Let’s hope he can solve another mystery today and find his way into the winners circle. Crime Lab’s is a half brother of Phipps & Janney’s multiple graded stakes winner INSPECTOR LYNLEY who won the G3 Tampa Bay Stakes on February 9. Could his brother's win be an indicator of things to come from this homebred’s family today? Their mother CRIMINOLOGIST was a Phipps & Janney-bred victor of four grade III stakes. To Crime Lab's immediate inside post will be the 5/2 morning line favorite KING ORB (#7), a four-year-old Claiborne-bred son of Orb. Trained by Linda Rice and ridden by Irad Ortiz, King Orb finished second last time out in Crime Lab’s January 23 Gulfstream start.

Kiaran McLaughlin has a runner 👀
I just wanna say HAPPY BIRTHDAY WAR EMBLEM!!!! 20 years old!
if this is the field it will be the best prep race period, in a loooong time.
The Kentucky Derby before the Kentucky Derby LOL
I’ll pass on WOW He has done everything right but staying in Louisiana is a mistake He is the best of a weak group at the fairgrounds
Incredible work today
If they all show...it will be the best of the prep races so far!
Per Laura Stitch, horse writer extraordinaire, the sire primarily determines surface and distance with class inherited from the dam. Of course she's not dogmatic on the subject and War of Will tracing to Sir Ivor, Northern Dancer, Riverman and Sadler's Wells on the bottom screams turf champion.
if this race drew all these horses(like above) 1) i will eat my shoe and 2) i would take the longest shot in the field.
this would be a horse to look at in this race, (avi's flatter)one of these flatter horses is due to pop in a big race and the trainer is good with these moves(look back at ami's flatter a couple of years ago.
Ok anyone know why Vino Ross9 never entered the Hal’s Hop. He was nominated

Was disappointing in last. Had some excuses but others ran better. I'll give him a shot to improve in the Fountain of Youth although the FOY field is a lot tougher than the Withers. Looks like Dale Romans wants to give him another shot. I know that Aqueduct is a deep track and Admire may not have cared for it. The way price horses keep popping in the Derby Preps, I have to throw a few bucks on him.
Admire worked Feb.17, 4f in 49.26b, 20/48
Finished far back in her debut. Maybe her next race should be on the dirt with blinkers on.
