Gulfstream: Mott, Aviate early favorite in Honey Fox


With favorite Cherokee Queen out, trainer Bill Mott's Aviate opened up the 2-1 favorite for the Honey Fox in her U.S. debut. Even more surprising the fact Bay to Bay is currently second choice at 3-1.

Whoever wins the Honey Fox, they'll have to go some to equal the performance of Apriority earlier in the card who dominated the likes of Aikenite and Tahitian Warrior while coming within .03 seconds of equaling the six and one half furlong track record. Doing so despite stumbling at the break and being eased to the wire by jockey Luis Saez. Apriority is the stable mate of Eclipse Champ and current six furlong Gulf record holder Big Drama.
