Friday's ninth and final race at Gulfstream is a $40,000 maiden claimer at one mile on a Firm turf course for 2-YO fillies.
We are going with Yafa (3) as our win pick, joining many others. She has a second place finish at one mile on turf in a $65,000 MSW race.
In the exacta box we have Maria's Mirage (2) and Learnt (8) who have raced and look like they might last the mile better than most of the first-time starters. Among those, Silver Sky Smooth (6) looks best to us--based on breeding and turf workouts at Palm Meadows.
Based partly on workouts, we have V K Star (10) and Miss Melania in the mix.
