Even going winless with three starters at Gulfstream on Sunday, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin has won with 9 or his last 18 starters between Aqueduct and Gulfstream. In a span of 24 hours last week, he unleashed three very good-looking sprinters, including Falaah and Crossbow, who both won at Aqueduct, and Emcee, who romped to a victory at Gulfstream.

On Thursday, Falaah won a first-level allowance race by 4 3/4 lengths, running six furlongs in 1:09.70. He earned a Beyer Speed Figure of 98. On Friday, Crossbow won a second-level allowance race by three lengths, running six furlongs in 1:10.03, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 97. McLaughlin said both horses would be considered for the Grade 2, $200,000 Tom Fool on March 3.

Less than 90 minutes after Crosswbow won, Emcee took a first-level allowance race at Gulfstream by six lengths. He ran seven furlongs in 1:20.83 and earned a 107 Beyer Speed Figure. McLaughlin said he could be considered for the Grade 2, $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap on March 10.
