SUGAR SWIRL TOPS THE ACTION AT GULFSTREAM
A fine field is signed on for the weekend feature at Gulfstream Park in Saturday’s $100,000 Sugar Swirl S. (G3). This six-furlong affair for fillies and mares is led by likely favorite Pomeroy’s Pistol, fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (G1) last time. The sophomore miss took the Forward Gal S. (G2) on this strip last season and should be in the hunt from the opening bell in here.
Charles Town Oaks queen Strike the Moon was a close fifth in the Raven Run S. (G2) last out and figures to run a good one in here for conditioner Michael Trombetta. Dual stakes queen Roman Treasure has a ton of speed and surely can’t be dismissed in this spot. The daughter of Roman Ruler was an eight-length stakes winner at Belmont two back. Two-time stakes vixen R Holiday Mood, 2010 Azalea S. (G3) queen Pica Slew, three-time Grade 3 placed Ms. Vanenzza, Final Mesa, who took the Old Hat S. (G3) on this oval in January and local stakes victress Devilish Lady, also figure to have a big say in the outcome.
