Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Holy Bull and Forward Gal Stakes Preview

After older horses took the spotlight last weekend, the Derby Trail and Oaks Trail resume this Saturday.  I turn my eyes to Gulfstream Park for a pair of competitive three-year-old points races: the Holy Bull (G2) and the Forward Gal (G2).

In the Holy Bull, Classic Empire attempts to keep his championship form, while eight foes try to knock him off the top of the heap.  In the Forward Gal, nine fillies attempt to take another step toward the Oaks.  Pretty City Dancer may be the class…but she has been off the screen since Saratoga, and there’s an interesting mid-Atlantic invader.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s Holy Bull and Forward Gal, and let me know what you think in the comments!
