GULFSTREAM PARK Race #11

Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #6 (VEGAS KITTEN) (7-2) - Nicely bred 5yo has obviously had some major issues with only seven starts to show at this point. The Ramsey owned runner has been on the sidelines since late April and will run off a private trainer change to Mike Maker. He has this son of 'Kitten's Joy' working both steadily and above average, drops him into a claimer today for the first time, and leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. is aboard.
2nd pick: #8 (Preacher Power) (3-1) - The morning line favorite, he missed by a 'neck' for a $40K tag on the Churchill grass Nov. 1. In his follow up there 27 days later, he raced evenly going a mile on the dirt for a $50,000 claiming price. Back on the turf, he drops to a new low and is a very strong win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Tricky Magician) (6-1) - Speedy sort breaks just off the rail in his first since Nov. 11. Capable at this level, he should be involved every step at a square price and must be left in the win mix.
4th pick: #1 (Mystical Moon) (15-1) - Well bred longshot hasn't raced since breaking his maiden at Indiana Downs Sept. 20. A 4yo son of 'Medaglia d'Oro,' he has a speed/stalking style, is working above average, and has the rail. An interesting invader at a big price.
