Horse Racing Picks for Gulfstream Park – Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019
BLUESKY KITTEN– Second race off the layoff.
Trainer hits at 24% off the claim. Joe Bravo rides…. you know what is I say about Joe Bravo. Exotics.
RODDICK – Stanley Gold trains this horse who tries the second time on the turf. Solid works coming in, 6/49 and 1/20.
BLACKTOP LEGEND– outside post at 1 mile on turf is tough. Asking the first timer is even tougher even with Castellano riding. Use with caution. More exotics.
FRANKLIN TOWERS– Irad rides and he has been RED RED HOT lately. This is the lone speed of the race. He breaks well and he could take this wire to wire.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH– Jose Ortiz rides and he is riding the opposite of his brother. Just awful.
He is a deep closer, but man use with caution.
SUMMER SPICE– Gaffalione rides and he is the only reason I am taking this horse. Stepping up in class, but he has a rating and closing style which may benefit him in this race.
SWAYED- Leparoux rides, prefer him on the outside post as he is not very aggressive on the rail, but horse drops in class. He can break well he will be in the money.
KNARSDALE– a major drop in class for Castellano. Horse cuts back in distance. First race off the layoff may be a concern. Exotics.
JIMI BAGS– in a race full of speed on a sprint this horse can close just a bit. He runs back to the race 2 back and he will be in the money. Irad rides and that only helps.
Good luck and thanks for horseracing with Dietz!
