Gulfstream Park: Palm Island brings big potential to Sunday allowance


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Trainer Joe Orseno picked a few plums out of last year’s dispersal sale for the horses who participated in Frank Stronach’s innovative but short-lived Horse Racing League, including recent allowance winner Oasis at Midnight. On Sunday, Orseno will unveil perhaps the best of his acquisitions from that sale, the lightly raced Palm Island, who’ll face a strong group of first-level optional-claiming rivals, including the Grade 2-placed Morgan’s Guerrilla and impressive maiden winner Accelerare. The seven-furlong race is race 7 on the card.
