Horse Racing Cards – Weekend Grade Stakes Races Ending Jan. 10
After a busy week last weekend, when we had three races that counted toward the Road to the Kentucky Derby; things slow down a little this weekend; there are still horse racing cards that have weekend graded stakes races on the schedule, but it’s still a relatively quiet week. There are four weekend graded stakes races set to go between Saturday and Sunday; including a huge race over in Japan. Yesterday, we provided you with a brief sneak peek of those four races; but today we are going to dig a little deeper and take a look at some of the favorites.
Gulfstream Park Race 10 – Tropical Turf Stakes (G3) 1 Mile Turf – $100,000
There is a solid field of 9 horses set to go in the Grade 3 Tropical Turf Stakes at Gulfstream Park. This one is for 4yo and up, and we have a clear favorite in the morning line. That would be Analyze it, who will break from the #6 stall. He is in as a 2/1 favorite, with the next closest horse being Admission Office at 7/2.
