Saturday's stakes schedule features some pretty big names in the racing landscape: Uncle Mo, Switch, St. Trinians (GB), Jaycito, Brethren, and Comma to the Top, just to name a few. The Gulfstream Park Handicap features an very evenly matched filed of older stakes horses, including Jackson Bend, Tackleberry, Tizway, Duke of Mischief, Soar Emprie, and Rule. It's a field of eight, but a very, very solid eight.
I'll be spending most of my Saturday sitting on a plane or at LAX on a layover, so I'll once again have to rely on the magic of the internet in an attempt to follow any of the big stakes races of the day.
