RACE #7 at Golden Gate Fields - Saturday, April 29, 2017
Golden Gate Fields - Race #7 - Post: 3:54pm - Stakes - 8.0 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $100,000 Class Rating: 113 San Francisco Mile S. (Grade 3)
#6 ALERT BAY (ML=8/5)
#4 MANY ROSES (ML=8/1)
#1 G. G. RYDER (ML=5/1)
ALERT BAY - This horse could be tough today, especially since Hernandez rode last race out and now should be better acquainted with this one. I'm optimistic this gelding will run well today. Last work was 2nd fastest of the day, which tells me he's sharp right now. This pony coming off a nice try in the last month is a solid contender in my opinion. Recent speed ratings show solid pattern of improvement. MANY ROSES - This gelding is very familiar with the winner's circle at Golden Gate Fields. I expect a repeat visit right here in this race. G. G. RYDER - Owns the highest Equibase speed figure on the turf at this distance. Have to give this horse a good chance. Ran a nice outing in the last race within the last month.
Vulnerable Contenders: #7 STAR STUDENT (ML=6/1), #5 CAMINO DEL PARAISO (ML=8/1),
STAR STUDENT - M/L odds of 6/1 make this thoroughbred a pass by my standards. CAMINO DEL PARAISO - Not probable that the speed figure he recorded on Nov 12th will hold up in this clash.
GUEST COMMENTARY: Winston - ALERT BAY - Playing the top earnings per start thoroughbred is an angle which won't steer you wrong in the long run. I'm betting on this one.
