Gulfstream Park: Currency Swap and Gemologist entered for Friday allowance


Currency Swap and Gemologist, two of the nation’s elite 2-year-olds from last year, are entered to make their first starts of the year on Friday at Gulfstream Park in a one-mile $80,000 allowance race, which attracted a field of five.

Currency Swap, the winner of the Hopeful Stakes, is in post 3, while Gemologist, the winner of the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, drew the rail.

Gemologist had been pointing to the Rebel Stakes this Saturday at Oaklawn Park before this Gulfstream allowance race came up. The Rebel is expected to feature Delta Jackpot winner Sabercat, another top 2-year-old from 2011 who will be making his first start of the year.
