Florida Derby Field Taking Shape

Gulfstream Park: Site of the Florida Derby

Right now, there looks to be a strong field of nine to try the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park on Sunday (4/3).  The race will be led by several Kentucky Derby contenders including Soldat, To Honor and Serve, Dialed In (Holy Bull winner), Stay Thirsty (Gotham winner) and Flashpoint.  If I had to guess, Fountain of Youth winner Soldat will likely be the morning line favorite and with heavy showers predicted this week/weekend, his number could go even lower.

Soldat, Dialed In and THAS have all been training extremely well leading up to the race.  If Hutcheson winner Flashpoint goes in the Florida Derby, there should be plenty of pace for those behind.  It will be interesting to see if Soldat can take back behind horses like he has been in training.

Likely runners: Soldat, Dialed In, To Honor and Serve, Flashpoint, Stay Thirsty, Flashpoint, Bowman’s Causeway, Arch Traveler, Watch Me Go and Reprized Halo

Morning Line to come later this week.
