Horse Racing Picks by Stogie for Friday, Feb. 26, 2021

Gulfstream Park Race 4

4 Known Agenda- beaten favorite in the G3 Sam F.Davis at Tampa last out, didn’t break well that day , but did make up some 9 lengths in the stretch run, Pletcher adds the hood, first time juice and Irad, nuff said, Top Pick

1 Top Gun Tommy – receives second time lasix and draws the rail today , comes off a nice win while taking on winners for the first time,which is no easy task.8-1 morning line offers a nice value , Major Player

6 Amount- overmatched last start in the G3 Holy Bull, fits well with these, don’t overlook

Selections 4-1-6-5

Turfway Park Race 5

8 Hush of a Storm- I liked this Colt’s Maiden breaking win two back, came off the pace with some serious turn of foot to win by 5 , next out versus winners Colt came home well once again to win by a length, could get the ideal pace set up today,Live Longshot

1 Gretzky the Great- hasn’t been seen since finishing a respectable 6th in the BC Juvenile Turf back in November, if Trainer Casse has the runner ready, he should be a force in here, usually I like to give a race , when BC runners return, so let’s try to beat the likely favorite, Win Contender

7 Hard Rye Guy- will need it quick up front, should be flying late, don’t ignore

Selections 8-1-7-5

Turfway Park Race 7

2 Just Read It- romped to an over 6 length win while breaking Maiden at Aqueduct on the dirt, tries the Synthetic surface here at TP today, Filly is out of super sire Constitution , who runners have already proven themselves on the All Weather surfaces, Top Pick

10 Dirty Dangle- exits from a well beaten 9th in the BC Juvenile Turf Sprint, much easier task here today, Major Player

8 Rocket Reload- Filly makes second start in the Brad Cox barn, this gal has good tactical speed and should be able to get a nice position early, don’t overlook

Selections 2-10-8-4

Santa Anita Race 7

2 Zucchera- failed as the favorite at this level last start, but the pace up front was slow that day and this one late kick was compromised, expect a faster early pace today, its telling that Jockey Rispoli picks Mare over the #1 horse, Top Pick

4 Tiz a Unicorn- lightly raced 4 year old makes turf debut for Trainer Richard Baltas, Filly’s dirt speed figures have been on a steady improve, she tries the green today and based on the Pedigree , this gal just might take to the weeds, Win Contender

1 Goodtingscominpink- 5-6 in the money here at SA, but only 1 win in 15 starts, tells me this Mare doesn’t know how to finish the deal, you would think the drop in class will put this one in the winners circle, but when Rispoli chooses the #2 horse over this one, that speaks volumes, use underneath

Selections 2-4-1-3
