Gulfstream Park runs Thursday through Sunday, and at this point I think it’s the highlight of the week. I broke even on my blog last week, lets get some winners.
RACE 1: The 10 will get the job done here for wonder trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. She comes back at a distance she liked last time out plus he responded well in that race without blinkers. This 3 year old is FAST in this spot and gets Gaffalione on the mount. Should best the field here to kick off the card as the favorite. A decent shot at a long shot price is the 9 Wonder Blondy. This filly is dropping in class here and gets both Lasix and blinkers. Could be a decent shot to hit board, so a small bet is worth it here. Opened on the morning line at 12/1.
RACE 4: This race is a really fascinating one with the pace being provided by the 3 but I’m going with the 5 Fast Fraction to W/P. I love this opportunity for this filly whose dropping down in class and is in her 2nd trip with blinkers after doing well with them last time out. Another sweet spot for Saffie Joseph as this horse hasn’t run for a few months, something he’s pushing a 30 percent win % at. The 3 year old should be right there with a shot to win. I would also play an exacta box… 5,8 as I believe the cutback in distance helps the 8. These two will duel for a winners circle trip.
Will be back Saturday with more selections. Good luck
