Eighth at Gulfstream: A Memorable Connection

Eighth at Gulfstream: A Memorable Connection

For old-times sake and rooting reasons, we are putting   a few bucks on American Halo (the 4 horse) in the sixth race.

She is a daughter of Monarchos, our all-time favorite horse.  In 2001, he won the Florida Derby and the Kentucky Derby.

American Halo is a Kentucky-bred first-time  starter and a homebred of John Oxley.

Oxley owned  Monarchos, who was trained by John Ward  and ridden by Jorge Chavez.  Mark Casse trains American Halo, and Luca Panici has the  mount today.  Oxley also owned Sky Mesa, the maternal grand sire of American Halo.

Today's race is a $50,000 maiden special weight is five furlongs on dirt for 2-YO fillies.

With ten minutes to post, Americn Halo is the 7-1 third chiuce.. Stainles, out of the Tdd Pletcher barn is evn-moeny and Go Astray, trained by Agel Rodruioguz, is 2-1.
