Irvin Wiemer and John McLane's Something Ventured will look to stay perfect at Gulfstream Park when she races as the co-highweight in the $100,000 Honey Fox Handicap (gr. IIIT) for fillies and mares on the turf at 1 1/16 miles.
The ultra-consistent daughter of Cobra King used a strong win in an allowance race here last March to begin a run of nine stakes starts with only one out-of-the-money finish all year.
"She's really consistent and always runs hard," said trainer Todd Pletcher, who chose to start Something Ventured over Ocean Drive and Smok'n Frolic, who were also both nominated. "She seems to like the Gulfstream course since she's won both of her races there so far. She worked well last week (4f in :49 3/5 on Dec. 21) and she should run well Saturday."
