Gulfstream Park First Race – Post time: 11:30 ET
2-Call Curt (7/2)

Away since May but returns sporting a healthy and steady worktab that should have him fit and ready for this maiden $35,000 claiming turf miler for older horses. The barn is quite capable with layoff runners and this son of Sky Mesa, in the frame in each of his three prior outings, has prior form over this course and distance that is good enough to beat this field. Drawn comfortably inside and likely to enjoy an ideal pace-stalking, ground-saving trip, he’s a win play and rolling exotic single at or near his morning line of 7/2.

Gulfstream Park Fourth Race – Post time: 1:00 ET
1-Movie Moxy (3-1)

Arrives from Churchill Downs fresh from a facile first-level allowance romp at this one-turn mile main track trip and should be quite capable of scoring right back despite the raise in class. The daughter of Street Sense has a perfect pace-stalking style guarantees a clean journey, and with two easy breezes to tick her over following a five week respite she appears to produce another significant forward move. The E. Kenneally-trained 3-year-old is listed at 3-1 on the morning line and at that price she offers plenty of value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
