2015 Florida Sunshine Millions Classic

Florida Sunshine Millions Classic

Wildcat RedIt is time to preview the Sunshine Millions Classic for four year olds and up going a distance of 11/8 miles for a purse of $250,000. The morning line favorite is Kiaran McLaughlin’s Transparent with Javier Castellano in the irons. This one likes to stalk the pace as a rule, however he has gone wire to wire in the past. His last race was in November of last year where he finished a disappointing eighth in the Cigar Mile at Aqueduct.  To be fair though, that was a Grade 1 race and he stumbled at the start. Second choice in the ML is Jose Garoffalo’s Wildcat Red with Joel Rosario up. We remember Red for running in the Kentucky Derby last year after finishing second in the Florida Derby. What can I say? He loves to be on the lead and I expect him to try that here, although he will have some company.

East HallThird choice in the morning line is William Kaplan’s East Hall with Luis Saez getting the call. He definitely likes to come from off the pace which will suit him in this race. He has won two in a row, but he has not been out since early November of last year. However he has been really sharp in his morning works. His win two back was in a Grade 2 event at a nice price. So the question is how will this race shake out? I believe that Wildcat Red and I’m Steppin’ It Up will get into it early with Transparent trying to keep up. In the end though I think that East Hall will get his third win in a row with Sr. Quisqueyano getting up for second and Wildcat Red third. That is the way I see it. Happy Handicapping Guys and Gals!
