Gulfstream Park Pegasus opinions for Saturday, Jan. 26

11TH RACE (Pegasus World Cup Turf): 1. #4 Aerolithe, 2. #7 Bricks and Mortar, 3. #1 Magic Wand, 4. #2 Yoshida. LONG SHOT: #5 Next Shares.
Aerolithe is a 5-year-old mare running against the boys and she has earned more than $3 million in Japan. She gets in light at 112 pounds and great turf jockey Flourent Geroux sees fit to ride her and at 8-1 she has a real shot.Bricks and Mortar has a race over the track and will be closing in the lane. Magic Wand is another female in the race and she was fourth in the Breeders’ Cup F&M Turf in her first U.S. start.

12TH RACE (Pegasus World Cup Invitational) : 1. #10 Audible, 2. #5 Accelerate, 3. #3 City of Light, 4. #8 Gunnevera. LONG SHOT: #12 Patternrecognition.
Audible finished third in the Kentucky Derby to Horse of the Year Justify last spring. He has never finished worse than second over this track in three tries. He finished second here in his first race against older last month but the prize was this spot. Obviously, Accelerate and City of Light are the horses to beat. Gunnevera is another horse for the course with a record of 9-4-2-2 here.

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Saturday, Jan. 26

SIXTH RACE: #8 Salsa Jack (7-2)

EIGHTH RACE: #2 Wagon Boss (8-1)

10TH RACE: #9 Unflappable Max (8-1)

Gulfstream Park opinions for Saturday, Jan. 28

Race 3 (Hurricane Bertie): #1 Genre (7-2): Had a prep over the track in the Rampart and might get the job done cutting back to 7 furlongs.

Race 5 (Poseodon Handicap): #1 Mylute (10-1): Tough race. Three horses which were on the Pegasus also-eligible list set to go here. This 7-year-old is coming out of the Cigar Mile, which has produced three next out winners. Back him up with the favorites.

Race 7 (Ladies’ Turf Sprint): #10 Triple Chelsea (6-1): Coming down from Tampa Bay. She will be closing down the lane. Hope fractions are fast enough.

Race 9 (Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint): #11 Power Alert (4-1): This gelding is a perfect 4-for-4 on this course. Need we say more?

Race 10 (La Prevoyante Handicap): #7 Arles (7-2): Just missed winning a Grade III at Del Mar. Tries again here for Graham Motion.

Race 11 (W.L. McKnight Handicap): #6 Charming Kitten (9-2): Ran in Ireland twice last year. Has an 8-4-2-0 record over this course and Mike Smith rides.

Good luck.
