Gulfstream Today: Clear Skies, Large Fields

Through four races at Gulfstream, skies are  still clear.

Barring late scratches, there will be 74 starters in the nine races. That average of 8.2 is one of the highest this month.  It shows the benefit of last week's cutback from five to four racing days.

Redwater rallied from mid pack to win the fifth race at one mile on turf.

Thus far speed has held up in just one of three turf races--with Charlie Mops and Blue Harbor Finishing one-two.

The upcoming sixth race is a $55,000 maiden special weight at five furlongs on dirt for 2-year-old  fillies.

Lirica who finished second to the impressive Perfect Kay at five furlongs on June 3 is 3-5 with 15 minutes to post.

There could be some bargains.

Faith 'n Works, third in the June 3 race, is 9-1. First time starters Bella Vincenza and Lago Lindo are both 7-1 and have had strong series of workouts.
