GP West: Sunday Preview

A pair of allowance/optional claiming races are the highlights of Sunday’s ten-race card at the Gulfstream Park West meet.
First post is 12:35 p.m. for the races being held at Calder in Miami Gardens.

The dirt track is listed as fast and the turf is listed as firm. The Weather Channel forecast is for a zero percent chance of rain during racing hours.

The eighth race is 6 ½ furlongs on dirt for Florida-bred fillies and mares three-years-old and up. The purse is $40,000 and the optional claiming price is $12,500.

A likely favorite is the speedy First Distinction (trainer Ralph Ziadie-jockey Edgard Zayas), who has the rail and a history of breaking well from inside posts.

Flash Jak (Fernando Abreu-Emisael Jaramillo). Sweet Madea (Stan Gold-Roberto Alvarado Jr.) and Jamie’s Dancer (Barry Rose-Miguel Vasquez) will be closing and are strong candidates to be in the exacta.

The ninth race is 7 ½ furlongs on turf for Florida-breds three-year-olds and up.  The purse is $40,000 and the optional claiming price is $16,000.

Total Joint (Jason Servis-Paco Lopez), Completely Bonkers (Bobby DiBona-Jonathan Gonzales) and  Niche (Allen Iwinski-Nik Juarez) are among likely favorites.

There is a carryover of $33,173 on the Rainbow 6, on races five through ten.
We will have coverage during the afternoon on this blog.
