Great set of races for the Mandatory Rainbow 6 payout (if it's not hit on Friday). Hoping the dicey weather stays away.

It will be a marathon day with early action from Dubai and 14 races at Gulfstream.

Looking forward to enjoying it at Gulfstream. Good Racing Luck

Yeah, will do. Also, plan on having my traditional Manhattan Clam Chowder after Race 5. It's solid, but not as good as it was at Calder.

I love the red chowder. Boston airport terminal B has Rhode Island chowder that is one of the best I ever had.

Feels chalky to me.
4th.... How does Prince Lucky lose?
5th.... Im using only the 1. The Chad Brown horse he beat last time is OK.
6th.....Im using 4,6. Im trying to beat the ML chalk, but i highly doubt shes favored at post time.
8th.....3,6
10th.... 6,8,9 some prices here. Im confident i have the winner with those 3.
13th.....1 pressed with a little 3,6,8
14th..... 1 LOCK CINCH CANT BE DEFEATED

Code of Honor getting post #9 seems like a bad draw for him. He got a really nice inside trip last time with a perfect pace set up for him. Both the pace and his trip will probably be worse for him this time around. Iím tossing him.

Maximum Security is a complete wildcard. I agree with Steve Haskin (I think thatís who talked about him on the show) you almost canít handicap the horse. The first 3 starts show very good sprint speed but the ability to run some more. The pedigree is interesting with AP Indy on the dam side...but the other horses on that side arenít very impressive. And heís faced almost no one. My biggest concern is if Mott wants to rate with Hidden Scroll and thereís no pressure on the pace, is it a possibility that Maximum Security gets the lead and just runs away with it?

I think you'll get some pace here from a few others. Jonny V will give Code of Honor a nice ride should be okay from 9 hole to get in position as 7 and 8 horse should be pushing to lead. I'm going 6 deep here. Its a fun betting race and feel I need coverage.

Who are your 6? Hidden Scroll, Current, Harvey Wallbanger, Bourbon War, Maximum Security, and Code of Honor?

The way I see it, the two most likely outcomes are: (1) Hidden Scroll rates well and wins or (2) He doesnít and Bourbon War takes it. But these preps have been hard to predict. With the way things have been going, I donít know if Iíd even be surprised if Bodexpress breaks his maiden here.

Right on for my 6. Think any of them can win but if I had to narrow it down it would be 3, 4 and 9. Harvey looks ready to roll and Bourbon and code of honor are will be there. Good luck

6 deep is insane. If you need a backup its Code of Honor.

Agreed. I don’t really like Current but Pletcher seems to be pushing the right buttons right now so not sure he can be completely overlooked. I think I’m going to roll with Hidden Scroll and Bourbon War.

In the ninth race the 4 hoss is out of Henny Hues. She was was a stone cold runner. You might want to include at a price.
