Saturday's 10th race (5:03pm ET) from Gulfstream Park is the Grade II Holy Bull Stakes for 3-year-olds traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track.  The current track profile favors early-pressing types breaking from middle posts at this trip.

#4 Almost Famous (8-1) owns dangerous early foot at a speed friendly distance. He won 2 of 3 in wire job fashion as a juvenile at Churchill and won under today's pilot Borel in his career debut. Byrne shows a profit with this type of returnee.

#7 Cairo Prince (3-1) drilled back-to-back 5f bullets for this at Palm Meadows and figures in the hunt throughout. He exits a strange renewal of the G2 Remsen and just missed running his record to 3-for-3 that day. His dam Holy Bubbette was sired by Holy Bull.

#1 Coup de Grace (4-1) won both career starts in a prominent throughout fashion but loses Castellano and must overcome a lack of seasoning. Chad Brown's promising $300k purchase picks up the services of comeback kid Johnny V.  

#6 Mr Speaker (5-1) exits back-to-back turf route wins and owns a promising dirt pedigree. He also owns running style versatility but might not be able to keep up with these early on this oval.

#8 Wicked Strong (8-1) is the one Castellano is riding. The Remsen show finisher ran well in that one considering the lack of pace but he has to prove that he can compete with the big boys when the pace is legit.
