2016 Rampart Stakes Entries at Gulfstream Park
Genre 9-5 - Todd Pletcher trained filly has placed in 10 of 12 career starts - five wins, four seconds and a third place finish. Last time out was a third in the G1 Juddmonte Spinster Stakes at Keeneland October 9 after a win in the minor Lady Jacqueline Stakes at Thistletown August 27 and a career-best effort - a win in over Eskenformoney the G3 Molly Pitcher Stakes at Monmouth Park July 31. She now has four wins, two seconds and a third in her last seven starts overall - competitive virtually every time out and will look to keep the roll going from gate 6 Saturday. John Velazquez is scheduled to ride the morning line favorite.
Curlin's Approval 5-2 - has three wins in her five career starts for trainer Martin Wolfson - her first four races came on this track. She made her graded stakes debut last time out and finished an OK fourth in the G2 Raven Run Stakes at Keeneland October 22. Before that was a good two race win streak - the minor Added Elegance Stakes August 28 and an Allowance Optional Claiming July 22. She also had a fifth in the minor Azalea Stakes July 2 and a maiden score at first asking in June. Curlin's Approval has been decent and hopes for her first stakes score Saturday. Emisael Jaramillo has been tabbed to ride the second betting choice from post 3.
Eskenformoney 3-1 - has 19 career starts for trainer Todd Pletcher with three wins, five seconds and three third place finishes. She has been OK lately - a third last time out in the G3 Turnback the Alarm Handicap at Belmont Park October 29 followed a fourth in the minor Summer Colony Stakes at Saratoga August 22, a respectable second in the G3 Molly Pitcher Stakes at Monmouth Park July 31, a third in the minor Lady's Secret Stakes on that track July 4 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score here in May. Other graded stakes results all came in 2015 - a fourth in the G1 Cotillion, a decent second in the G3 Monmouth Oaks, a fifth in the G1 Mother Goose, a tenth in the G1 Kentucky Oaks , a second in the G2 Gulfstream Park Oaks and a third in the G2 Devona Dale Stakes. She looks for her first ever graded stakes score in decent form with Javier Castellano aboard the intriguing third choice from the outside post 7.
Screaming Skylar 6-1 - has just two wins, a second and two third place finishes in 13 career starts for trainer Jorge Navarro. She registered an eighth in the G2 Honeymoon Stakes in May, 2015 and also had consecutive fifths in graded stakes action later that year - the G2 San Clemente Handicap in July and the G3 Senorita Stakes in May. She hasn't been much better since - an OK second last time out in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Gulfstream Park West November 10 followed a sixth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Parx in September, a sixth in the minor Golden Poppy Stakes at Golden Gate May 14 and another sixth in the minor Arboretum II Stakes at Santa Anita in March. She has placed in just two of her last seven starts overall and will be after a major breakthrough from gate 4 Saturday. Edgard Zayas has the mount.
Inside Out 8-1 - Martin Wolfson trained filly has 10 career starts with three wins, two seconds and a third place finish. She enters off consecutive disappointing sevenths - the minor HBPA Stakes at Presque Isle Downs October 6 and the minor One Dreamer Stakes at Kentucky Downs September 10. Before that was a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming October 8, a fifth in the G3 Robert G. Dick Memorial at Delaware Park July 9 and two straight wins including an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Pimlico June 11. She has failed to place in three of her last four starts overall and will depart from post 5 in less-than-spectacular form. Tyler Gaffalione will be in the saddle.
Caboclo do Rio 20-1 - Chilean bred Angel Quiroz trained mare has five wins, eight seconds and two third place finishes in 27 career starts. She placed in three of her last four starts at home - the best being a win in October, 2015 but hasn't been great in her three starts in North America. Last time out was a fourth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Gulfstream Park West November 11 after a sixth in the minor Panama City Stakes October 1 and an eighth in the minor Added Elegance Stakes August 28 - both on this track. Caboclo do Rio has been underwhelming but hopes to change all of that from gate 2 Saturday. Joge Ruiz rides.
Tormenta de Oro 30-1 - has 33 career starts for trainer Patrick Marcondes - all in South Florida with just seven wins, three seconds and five third place finishes. She makes her graded stakes debut off a nice win at 44-1 odds in the minor Claiming Crown Glass Slipper Stakes on this track December 3, a second in a Starter Allowance November 6, a fifth in an Allowance Optional Claiming October 21 and a Starter Optional Claiming score here September 29. Tormenta de Oro steps up in decent form and will be after her second straight stakes win from the rail. Luca Panici has been tabbed to ride.
