1st-GP, $70K, Msw, 2yo, 7f, 12:10 p.m.

A pair of Todd Pletcher trainees headlines the action Saturday for Gulfstream's Pegasus Preview Day led by $700,000 2-year-old BAIL US OUT (Lookin At Lucky). Picked up at OBSAPR by Repole Stable off a breeze in :10 flat, the bay is a son of a stakes-winning dam from the family of MGSW/MGISP Topicount (Private Account). Bail Us Out will break from the inside under Jose Ortiz.

Stablemate Born Noble (Constitution), himself a $725,000 KEESEP yearling for St. Elias Stable and West Point Thoroughbreds, is the first foal out of GISP Zapperkat while third dam Rokeby Rosie counts dual champion Silverbulletday (Silver Deputy) as her half-sister. Pletcher tabs the other Ortiz brother, Irad, for the ride from the far outside.

Breaking between that pair is Mo Go (Medalia d'Oro), a $400,000 KEENOV weanling for Tom Durant and Jose D'Angelo. The colt was a $625,000 RNA at OBSAPR earlier in the year.

Big City (City of Light) has the same owner and trainer as Mo Go and his own $300,000 FTKNOV price tag after RNA'ing for $445,000 also out of OBSAPR. His dam, bought for $325,000 at KEENOV with this runner in-utero, is a daughter of MGISW and $1.8m KEENOV broodmare Ask the Moon (Malibu Moon). TJCIS PPS
