Welcome to Arseonlineracing’s coverage of the Pegasus Cup from Gulfstream Park, USA…
We don’t cover as much US Racing as we would have liked in the past, mainly concentrating on the BIG meetings like the Breeders Cup, but with Jamie & Chris on board, this will allow the team to cover more racing from around the world…
Charlie has covered the Grade 1 races while Rich has a couple from the under card & a couple of Grade 3 contests, so we will go in race order…. All Races at UK Times
Race 2 – 5.08PM – Maiden – 1m 110yds – 3yo Only….
Ridin With Biden – Constitution x Allemande 3yo Colt.
Steps up in trip to 1 & 1/2 miles after finishing a neck runner up on race course debut at Philadelphia Park back in December 2020 over 6f. He is a half brother to Music of Life, who won over 1m…
THE DANGER – Dynamic One, who cost $750,000 & finished 9th on debut over 7f. He finished runner up over C&D on boxing day….
Race 4 – 6.05PM – Fred Hooper Stakes – 1m – Grade 3 – 4yo Plus….
Avant Garde – Tonalist x Dancing Afleet 4yo Gelding.
Won twice over C&D and has another 3 course wins to his name, he has also won on the West course at this venue, so is well acquainted with it.
He landed the Starter Stakes over 7f last time out on December 5th and has since changed trainers. This is his first start for the new trainer having won 6 of his last 7 starts & his only defeat was back in September at Remington Park over 1m 1f (9f)….
Race 7 = 7.38PM – Marshaua’s River Stakes – 1m – Fillies Grade 3 – 4yo Plus….
Vigilantes Way – Megaglia d’Oro x Salute 4yo Filly.
3 wins from 7 career starts since debut back in December 2019.
She was runner up in October 2020 to Evil Lyn in the Hilltop Stakes at Pimlico before finishing 3rd to American Oaks winner, Duopoly at Aqueduct in a 1m 110yd stakes race on December 26th.
The 4yo also won on that day at this course in a 1m 110yd Stakes contest and will look to go from the front…
Charlie – Gulfstream Race 11 – 21.59
The first of 2 Group 1 contests on tonight’s card, Todd Pletcher is triple handed in this race with Largent paired with Paco Lopez, Colonel Liam paired with Irad Ortiz and Social Paranoia paired with Luis Saez. All 3 have live chances but I’ve opted for Anothertwistafate who is paired with Joel Rosario and has won 5 times over 1m to 1m 1f and landed a Group 2 at Santa Anita last time out over 1m 1f beating Bob And Jackie by 2 and 1/4 lengths. That form looks solid and Anothertwistafate is looking to cement his credentials further by landing this Group 1 contest with the Breeders Cup meeting a target further down the line.
Gulfstream Race 12 – 22.44
The 2nd Group 1 on the card and the final race of the meeting, looks a very open race on paper, but in reality the fav Knicks Go looks very strong here. Having won the Big Ass fans Breeders Cup Dirt Mile at Keeneland over 1m, when beating Jesus Team in November last year. With a repeat of that performance should score again here under Joel Rosario, Code of Honour, Tax and Jesus Team will fight for the minor places to cap off another excellent evening of racing at Gulfstream Park.
That is everything for you today folks… Please stay safe & only bet what you can afford to lose…
Thanks for your support & for popping by, it’s really appreciated…
All the Best – The Arseonlineracing Team
