Here are some things to look for the remainder of Thursday at Gulfstream.
We will be back before the tenth race, with updates.
Fifth race -- scheduled post of 3:21 p.m. This is a contentious 7 1/2 furlong turf allowance/optional claimer for Florida-bred fillies and mares 3-YO and up.
The eight-horse field is loaded with speed. Of that group the one we like best is First Illusion who is dropping from stakes races.
We recommend building bets around First Illusion, Somethingelse and Tiz Boa.
Somethingelse will have some late run. On Sept. 2 at Gulfstream, she caught and edged Tiz Boa for second place in a one mile turf race at a similar level to today.
The Rainbow 6 starts with the sixth race. There are 52 total runners, and a carryover of $89,560.
The 11th and last race is down to a hard-to-handicap ten horses following the scratches of Clouded Appeal and Hello Moon.
Here are some ideas on early races in the Rainbow 6:
Sixth race -- Randy Sr, trained by Kathleen O'Connell,, might be a horse to single in the Rainbow 6. This race is is one mile on dirt for 2-YO maidens. He finished a strong second to stablemate Western Journey at seven furlongs on Sept. 2.
Western Journey will run in Saturday's $500,000 In Reality at 1 1/16 miles on dirt. We are among those giving him a strong chance to hit the board in the 12-horse field headed by Three Rules.
Seventh race -- This could be a race for going deep, and Hiram's Mistress and Dancing Wind look like must includes. Giuletta Q (15-1 in the morning line) has speed and looms a chance if she gets a clean break from post nine.
