Play of the Day – January 23rd 2021

Play of the Day Race Date January 23, 2021 Track Gulfstream Park Race 11 Overview A great betting renewal of the Pegasus World Cup Turf, but hardly a great race, in terms of overall quality, which means a “now” horse like #8 ANOTHERTWISTOFFATE (5-1) should have a big chance. Pace It looks soft, with little confirmed early speed, which should really enhance the chances of #8 ANOTHERTWISTOFFATE (5-1), who was just off an honest pace adding blinkers in his G2 win last time. Trends The turf has been fair, though in the elongated routes it’s never a bad thing to have tactical speed, especially in a bunched field.…

Trends The main track has continued to play very fair, and it even tilted a bit towards off-the-pace types Saturday and Sunday. Best Bet MISS JEN Number 8 Morning Line (12-1) Best Bet Overview #8 MISS JEN (12-1): Another bad ML on this class dropper, who was facing much better last time…

Play of the Day Race Date January 20, 2021 Track Gulfstream Park Race 6 Overview An average SAL 50k that has plenty of inside speed and several who look like question marks going this one-turn mile.
