Gulfstream Park January 29, 2020

Race 7: $20,000-$16,000 Claiming for fillies and mares 4-year-olds and upward going 5 furlongs on the turf

#3 Hurricane Breeze takes a massive drop in class and makes the move from New York to Florida. This is a move I’ve been relying on a lot with many runners. #6 Dream Chasing enters this race  with the ability to be near the front end, in a pace less race. There’s plenty of value here at 8/1.

Race 8: $6,250 Claiming for 4-year-olds and upward going 1 mile (8 furlongs) on the dirt

#2 Starship Apollo seems to be consistent no matter what the condition or the distance is. He is one of my top choices but don’t love the price. #4 January Won was just a 1/2 length away in this spot last time out. He’s an obvious choice and provides a lot more value than Starship Apollo.

Race 9: $75,000 Allowance Optional Claiming for 3-year-old fillies going 5 furlongs on the turf

#1 Danessa Baby took the lead from the gate but as the race progressed, he wore down. There’s no way the first quarter goes in :20.68 again right? #2 Magical Soul took advantage of that quick fraction but still failed to get to the winners’ circle. These two are standouts on paper.

Race 10: $6,250 Claiming for fillies and mares 4-year-olds and upward going 6 furlongs on the dirt

#5 Lailoni hasn’t been seen since 2019, but when she was running in similar races, she was tough to beat. The layoff will be tough to overcome, but I don’t want to bet against her. #8 Wedontbelieveher will be coming from well off of the pace in this spot. I anticipate fast fractions early on, which help provide an opportunity for closers to make their mark.


$3 Pick 4 (Races 7-10) 3,9 / 2,4 / 1,2 / 5,8 – $48
