The $110,000 Claiming Crown Distaff Dash is one of the many jewels on an action-packed card Saturday, December 5 at Gulfstream Park as 13 fillies and mares line up to contest the five furlong turf sprint.

At 4/1 on the morning line, Silver Sashay could be a play-against for many handicappers despite her three-race winning streak. The five year-old mare has not raced since winning a listed stakes event July 18 at Gulfstream and will make her first start out of the Alfred McIntosh barn. Silver Sashay, a winner of 10 starts in 29 career tries has found a niche sprinting on the turf with 4 wins in 6 starts at the fiver furlong distance, including 3 for 6 at Gulfstream. She will likely need to avoid a speed duel with Awesomeendsome (30/1), who will break to her inside from post 2. Silver Sashay will break from post 6 with Eddie Zayas aboard. 

Belmont shipper looking comfy in Florida

Spectacular Me (5/1) boasts excellent recent form, winning 3 of her last 7 starts while thrice finishing second, and recording two thirds. The Steve Klesaris trainee shipped in from Belmont earlier this month and has been working comfortably at Gulfstream. A five year-old daughter of Catienus, Spectacular Me appears to have a class and tactical advantage over most of her main rivals. 

 Rumble Doll returns from freshening 

Rumble Doll (8/1) is another classy contender who fits nicely against this bunch on speed figures and running style. The late-running daughter of Street Boss could have a big impact while making her first start since October 8.
