Barish’s Free Pick for Gulfstream Park West

Gulfstream Park West

Race 7

An allowance optional-claiming race to be run at 1 mile on the turf. Top choice is No. 9 Rocket Joe Cooper. He has really taken to turf racing as his last three races have been very respectable. There was a very impressive win here three weeks ago. From the outside post, he should be able to control the lead. No. 1 Over the Channel is two for two wins on this GPW course. No. 10 Cowboy’s Hero is an intriguing long shot in here. If he can find the form he had back in the summer, then he certainly fits here.
