Monroe Stakes Coming Up at Gulfstream

The $75,000 Monroe Stakes,  Gulfstream's 10th and feature  race for Saturday, has been moved to one  mile on the dirt track  that is listed as Fast.

The Monroe had been scheduled for 1 1/16 miles  on turf.  It is for fillies and mares 3-YO and up. Scheduled post is 5:19 p.m.

Scratches  due to  the surface change have left the Monroe with just seven starters.

They are (with post positions): Thisismytime (4), Starship Nterprise (7), Mo of the West (8), Key Biscayne (10), Global Brand (11), Heiressindy (13) and Elusive Molly (14).

Thisismytime, Heiressindy and Elusive Molly were entered as Main Track Only, and all should be considered for the exacta. Past Performances indicate that  Thisismytime, wth Luca Panici riding for Kathleen O'Connell, could attempt  to take the field gate to wire,

Key Biscayne has won both of her dirt starts, one taken off turf at Belmont Park and one taken off turf at Gulfstream and also should be considered for the exacta.
