GULFSTREAM:Misidentified horse with wrong form allowed to run in opener

Email

Cannot believe the stewards allowed number 11, Onesteptogo, to compete in the first race.  Apparantly Onesteptogo was mis-identified as stable mate Walkamileinmyshoes when he made his debut at Calder on Dec. 27. Onesteptogo actually finished second in his first start but was listed in the Racing Form and track program with the form of Walkamileinmyshoes who dwelt at the break and raced last throughout, beaten 20 lengths.  Despite sporting glaring and eroneous form, Onesteptogo was permitted to start and was bet to 2-1 only to falter late and finished far back behind the 50-1, wire to wire winner County Trick.  Thankfully avoiding a potential mountain slide of complaints from patrons had Onesteptogo won with the wrong form.
