The Dandy Donn

The Grade 1 $500,000 Donn Handicap will be run at Gulfstream Park and features the first 2007 start of 2006 Horse Of The Year, Invasor. I really don't think that Invasor gets beat. The only race he has lost in ten career starts was the trip to Dubai last year. His last two workouts are outstanding and he drew the rail, which can only help his trip out. I think Magna Graduate could be a possible threat in this spot. He is also making his 2007 debut here and posted a 110 Beyer in his last start, the Grade 3 Queens County. Chatain is the third pick in the Donn off his win in the Grade 3 Hal's Hope at Gulfstream on January 6. He also has a bullet workout on January 29 on his resume'. Hesanoldsalt can be a throw-in for a possible price underneath as well. He was DQ'd from a win in his last go at Gulfstream under Rafael Bejarano. Also, on the card Saturday at Gulfstream is the Grade 3 $150,000 Holy Bull, which features the kick-0ff of the 2007 Derby campaign for Nobiz Like Shobiz. Be sure to watch him through the early months of 2007 as he should be the Derby favorite on the first Saturday of May, if he can get that far. Here's wishing the best of luck to you all.
