Little Dream Seeks to Stay Hot With Little Tami

Little Tami's speed figures are not among the best for the horses entered in today's ninth and feature race at the Gulfstream Park West meet, being held at Calder Casino & Race Course.

But the 4-year-old filly will get some support from bettors who like to go with so-called hot barns. She is trained by Carlo Vaccarezza and owned by Little Dreams Racing of which he is founder and managing partner.

The race is  one mile on  dirt. It is a  $62500 allowance/optional claimer for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. Little Tami is not in for a tag.'

Going into today's races, Vaccarezza has ten wins and is tied for fourth place in  the trainers' standings.  Two of his wins were  over the past weekend,
Little Dreams has four wins, in 14 starts and  is tied for third in the owners' standings  It also has a second place finish and three third place finishes.

Little  Dreams allows investors to take a stake in a horse with as little as 1 percent of the acquisition  price.  Vaccarezza  has bought many Little Dreams horses for $50,000 or less.
Little Tami, a  daughter of Big Brown, was a $150,000 purchase at the Ocala Breeders' Sales  Co.'s March 2013 sale.

Little Tami has won just two of 12 career starts, But she has a win and two third place finishes on Calder's track.  Jeffrey Sanchez has the mount.

Danessa Deluxe is the likely favorite. Her record includes  a third place in this year's Gulfstream Park Oaks (Grade 2) at 1 1/16 miles. Edgard Zayas will ride  for owner Gelfenstein Farm and trainer Jorge Navarro.

One key to the race could be whether any horses will attempt to stay with the speedy Curlin's Princess during the early stages . Luca  Panici will ride her for trainer Marty Wolfson and owner Miller Racing.
