HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. &ndash; Three-year-olds are always the focus of attention during the Gulfstream Park winter season, and the first major action in the division will come in Friday&rsquo;s eighth, a one-mile, entry-level allowance test that drew a field of 10.\r\nAnyone handicapping the race on breeding alone will have to begin with Shadow Warrior, a son of A.P. Indy out of the Seeking the Gold mare Victory Ride who was a Grade 1 winner herself during an abbreviated but nearly perfect racing career. Shadow Warrior made just two starts at 2, finishing a troubled fourth over the Polytrack at Keeneland on Oct. 21 before earning his diploma with an improved three-length triumph going a mile at Churchill Downs four weeks later.\r\n&ldquo;He ran well in his first race and better in the second,&rdquo; said Rusty Arnold, who trains the homebred for G. Watts Humphrey Jr. &ldquo;He probably wants a little more ground, and Friday&rsquo;s race will be a big step up for him meeting winners for the first time. Pedigree wise, he&rsquo;s obviously our top prospect, and Friday is going to tell us a lot.&rdquo;\r\nFriday&rsquo;s main event is likely to produce a candidate or two for the Grade 3 Holy Bull on Jan. 29, but Arnold was reluctant to make any commitments just yet.\r\n&ldquo;Let&rsquo;s see how he does here first, and then we&rsquo;ll start thinking about what will come next,&rdquo; Arnold said.\r\nShadow Warrior is one of seven horses in the race coming off maiden wins, along with Black N Beauty, Madness n&rsquo; Mayhem, Wildcat Formation, Fightinforfreedom, Dr. Tom G., and Voce Del Leone.\r\nPrinting Press is the only stakes-placed member of the field, with the son of Tapit finishing third after contesting the pace in Monmouth Park&rsquo;s one-mile Seton Hall University Stakes and third in the restricted NATC Futurity four weeks earlier.\r\nThe top last-race Beyer Speed Figures in the field belongs to Back N Beauty, who earned an 82 off his 2 3/4-length maiden win at Churchill on Nov. 12, although he&rsquo;s yet to run beyond 6 1/2 furlongs. El Grayling received an 81 Beyer after finishing a sharp second behind Brethren, Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver&rsquo;s undefeated half-brother, when switched to the main track for the first time off a steady diet of turf races to open his career.\r\nTrainer Nick Zito always has to be reckoned with in early season 3-year-old races, and his Dr. Tom G. already owns a win at the distance after earning his diploma going a mile over the Belmont turf course in his 2-year-old finale.
