El Oro (FR): Strong Gallop Out Could Be Competitive Stretching Out

Three year old gelding, who was invading from Florida for Librado Barocia, surfaced in the 6th on Saturday on the turf at six and a half from the chute for a maiden claiming tag of $50K. Off at 5/1 in a field of 11, he actually had a pretty rough trip for a horse that won this race, as twice he had to check early before the dirt crossover. However, Vasquez did an excellent job of getting him over to the fence to save some ground, then found a seam at the top of the lane and drove him up the rail to get the victory by a length at the wire. He had a very strong gallop out which means he should have no trouble stretching out to two turns. He was in straight maiden races at Gulfstream and now is eligible for the starter races, non winners twice, and he should be very competitive with those horses.
