Golden Gate Race 7

The 7th race is a $4,000 starter allowance sprint on the turf and features our BEST PLAY of the DAY. 


LADY CHROME and AMBER LOUISE stand out in here against this group and have been facing off against each other several times recently. The morning line favorite LADY CHROME really runs well over turf so was probably short changed when their last meeting got switched from 5F grass race to 5F over the dirt.  LADY CHROME ended up not firing and AMBER LOUISE ran a huge winning effort. She has a big chance to rebound with one of her better grass sprint figures which would make her tough to beat. However, she has raced several times over the summer without much spacing and it's possible to think her form might be heading the wrong way right now.

But AMBER LOUISE is hard to ignore after winning 4 of her last 5 and has been a roll for trainer Tamayo ever since he claimed her 4 starts ago.  She has not had success here at GG on the turf yet in 4 tries but the record should not count as it includes turf routes at a longer distance and a turf sprint facing much tougher $40k field a long time ago.  She has also never tried it while in the sharp form she’s been in recently. 

REVENUE VIRGINIUS just won a turf sprint at SR last out in a good effort and would need to improve a bit here or regression of the top 2 but definitely rates a long look and gets the 3rd pick.
