Last weekend, the three-year-old prep season took a one-week break.

This weekend, the sophomore trail continues full steam ahead, and Picks and Ponderings takes you to all the points races. This piece will focus on Gulfstream’s pair, the Forward Gal (G4) for fillies and the Holy Bull (G2) for open company.
