Maximova Rates a Look in 8th at Gulfstream

Today's Rainbow 6 starts at Gulfstream with the fifth race at 2:35 p.m.  There is a $727,106 carryover.

The fifth is a Maiden Special  Weight at five furlongs on turf for 4-YOs and up. We'll leave the handicapping to others.

For now we're just looking  for a single in the feature eighth race, which has only six runners. We suggest a close look at Maximova (the  5 horse).

The race is the $65,000 Savannah  Jane at 1 1/2 miles on turf for fillies and mares 4-YO and up,

Three of the horses are graded stakes vets who last ran on Dec. 26 at Gulfstream in the La Prevoyante (Grade 3) at 1 1/2 miles on turf.

Maximova, Cay Dancer and Walk Close finished second, sixth and eighth in that race.

Maximova was 35-1 in the 11-horse field. She tracked the favorite Goldy Espony and finished second to that horse by 1 1/2  lengths. Even though the pace was moderate, Cay Dancer and Walk Close lacked their usual kicks.

Joe Bravo has the return ride on Maximova for trainer Christophe Clement. They could try to wire the field.

Clement trains Walk Close with Joel  Rosario on board.  Chad Brown trains Cay Dancer, ridden by Joel Rosario.
