Itsmyluckyday, a son of Lawyer Ron, already has eight starts in his young career, six of them in stakes company. He has four wins and a second and third place finish. He won the Gulfstream Park Derby in his last start and boasts victories over rivals Sr. Quiquyano and Joshua's Comprise. However, when coming face-to-face with Bern Identity in the Delta Downs Jackpot, Itsmyluckyday was not so lucky, finishing in seventh.
A long shot worthy of a mention is Dewey Square. Trainer Dale Romans, who took home the Eclipse Award for Trainer of the Year last weekend, sends out this this son of Bernadini. In his last start, Dewey Square was third to Uncaptured and Frac Daddy in the Kentucky Jockey Cup Nov. 24.
The complete field from the rail out is: Shanghai Bobby 4-5, Frac Daddy 8-1, Clearly Now 12-1, Bern Identity 4-1, Sr. Quisqueyano 20-1, Dewey Square 12-1, Itsmyluckyday 6-1, Tulira Castle 30-1, Fredericksburg 30-1, and Joshua's Comprise 50-1.
The race is the 10th on the Gulfstream Park Saturday card with a scheduled post time of 5:05 p.m. and can be seen on HRTV.
