WizCapper’s Free Gulfstream Park Picks for the G2 Holy Bull Stakes

  1. Gunnevera – 9 to 2. Broke maiden here going 5 1/2 last summer, then won the G2 Saratoga Special before falling to Classic Empire in the Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland. I know it was just the Delta Jackpot and all, but this horse’s win was more impressive than Exaggerator’s in that race.
  2. Perro Rojo – 30 to 1. 60 to 1 in the Breeders’ Futurity and ran like it. Only win was a Delaware maiden back in September but this is a son of Belmont winner and Birdstone and Zito is 19% at the meet.
  3. Classic Empire – 3 to 5. Only loss in 5 starts was when he lost the rider in the G1 Hopeful. Otherwise perfect since breaking maiden at Churchill going 4 1/2 in the slop. Added blinkers after the mishap and took the Breeders’ Futurity from post 11. Won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last time out by a neck in a long hard duel to the wire with Not This Time who has since retired. Underlay.
  4. Talk Logistics – 12 to 1. Broke maiden at first asking three back in a 5f sprint at Parx. Was second and third consecutively in back to back overnights at Gulfstream.
  5. Irish War Cry – 15 to 1. Two time winner in as many tries. Adds Lasix and gets new rider in Rosario after dueling with second place finisher in a 5 horse field at Laurel.
  6. Fact Finding – 6 to 1. 3 nice looking wins by son of The Factor but those were a maiden going 6f at Saratoga, an allowance NW2L going 6 1/2 at Keeneland, and a 7 length win last time out going 1 mile over the slop in a $75K overnight here. Tested today.
  7. Shamsaan – 20 to 1. Son of Bernardini started on the turf at Saratoga last summer. Was 5th in an off-the-turf effort behind Bonus Points who goes in the Withers. Finally got the win last time in a maiden originally carded for the turf but move to the sloppy main here in December. Hmmm?
  8. Cavil – 15 to 1. Broke maiden two back going 1 mile at Aqueduct in an off-the-turf effort over the main. Came back last time as the favorite and was 6th in the Mucho Macho Man.
  9. Fire for Effect – 20 to 1. Broke maiden last time here going 1 1/16 on wet-fast main. Tough place to get second start.

Selections: 1 – 3 – 7 – 6
