Horse Racing Picks by Stogie for Saturday, Dec 26, 2020

Gulfstream Park Race 6 H.Allen Jerkins Stakes

  • 10 High Noon Rider- must be considered, after winning here at a 55-1, Geldings late pace numbers were off the charts, Win Contender
  • 6 Tintoretto- makes second start off the layoff, was a non factor last out in the G3 Red Smith, much easier task today, Win Contender
  • 5 Conviction Trade- Irad/Maker combo, NY invader has been racing well of late, still I’m not too sure this one can get the marathon distance of 2 miles today, use underneath

Selections 10-6-5-4


Gulfstream Park Race 8 Tropical Park Derby

  • 9 Fancy Liquor- G2 winning Colt is a model of consistency , finishing in the money in all 7 Career starts with 3 wins , lone GP start was a Maiden win, Win Contender
  • 3 Dack Janiels- is in great form right now while racing on the dirt, Sisterson tries this Colt on the turf today, I think this one runs big today, Live Longshot
  • 6 Colonel Liam- comes out of two game efforts at the Spa on the turf, has been off for 4 months but Pletcher usually has his runners ready to pop off the layoff, Major Threat
  • 5 Sole Volante- talented runner has been sidelined for over 10 months , if ready , he can take this, but that’s a big if, still I’ll include in the deep exotics

Selections 9-3-6-5


Gulfstream Park Race 10 Tropical Park Oaks

  • 11 Ask Bailey- love this one’s effort at Churchill Downs lat start, came off the pace to just miss victory by a nostril, Filly’s Turf speed figures hold up against her rivals in here and at 10-1 she offers an incredible value, Live Longshot
  • 4 Vigilantes Way- Shug McGaughey trained Filly has never finished off the board while running on the Turf and work tab looks tight, Win Contender
  • 2 Stunning Sky- has been facing stronger, fits well here , Major Threat

Selections 11-4-2-10


Fair Grounds Race 7 Pago Hop Stakes

  • 11 Evil Lyn- not crazy about the 11 hole, but this Filly has the tactical speed to get a good position early under a Jockey Florentine Geroux, Filly has won 3 of 5 at this distance and is a perfect 2-2 here at the Fair Grounds, Top Pick
  • 4 Disobedient-lightly raced runner by Into Mischief, comes off a 5 length win while facing winners for the first time on the dirt, runs on the blades today, Win Contender
  • 6 Teenage Kicks- should benefit from a likely hot early pace, Fillys come home times are amongst the best in here, Win Contender

Selections 11-4-6-10


Santa Anita Race 7 San Antonio Stakes Grade 2

4 Sharp Samurai- has been facing a plethora of heavy hitters of late and although this Gelding hasn’t won a race in over two years , I believe today is the day he gets back in the winners circle, under Jockey Flavien Prat, Win Contender

8 Mucho Gusto- is a perfect 3-3 over this course and has run well off an extended layoff in the past, Win Contender

6 Midcourt- Gelding’s biggest wins have been over this Santa Anita strip, should run well today

Selections 4-8-6-3
