Overall View

Another week of racing at the Championship Meet continues Wednesday at Gulfstream Park. The horse to beat is the even money choice on the Morning Line, A Bit of Both. Playing the rainbow six, pick five or late pick four, this is a potential free square in the sequence with opportunities to get prices home earlier in the card. A Bit of Both goes out for trainer Jason Servis who has one of the hottest and most successful barns in 2018. He is winning 32% of his starts and 33% of his sprint races. Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be in the irons for Servis and the two year old filly won impressively breaking the maiden over the Gulfstream Surface in late September. Midtown Rose is at a fair price on the Morning Line. Midtown rose has run in the money three times in four starts at Gulfstream and every start at the distance. Midtown Rose is going to challenge for the lead in the race, so the rail is going to have a ton of speed. For Midtown Rose to pull off the upset, she will need to get to the lead and slow down the pace, she does have the “bug” advantage in the race.

Picks: 2-1-6-4
