Toh’s Grey Cat towers over allowance field


By most established handicapping criteria, Toh’s Grey Cat seems like a standout in the fourth race Friday at Gulfstream Park, a $36,000 starter allowance with a $50,000 claiming option going a mile on the main track that serves as the nominal feature. He is in top form, having run first or second in five straight races at Gulfstream; he has run Beyer Speed Figures of between 82 and 86 over that stretch, higher than the career-best figures of his six rivals; and he has won 10 races, which matches the combined total of his opponents.
