Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Princess Rooney Stakes and Smile Sprint Stakes Preview

This Saturday features a pair of Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In races: both at Gulfstream Park, and both for sprinters aged three and up.  Picks and Ponderings previews both races in detail.

The Smile Sprint Stakes (G3), a six-furlong sprint on the dirt, welcomes open company and offers its winner a berth in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).  The fillies’ and mares’ complement, the Princess Rooney Stakes (G2), covers seven furlongs on the dirt.  That race’s winner punches her ticket to the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s pair of Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In races at Gulfstream, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
