PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  1/12/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  5 
Race overview  A competitive 12.5k MCL for 4up going 1m70 on the Tapeta. 
Pace  Expect a bunched group, as there’s little speed here on paper, and several who want to stalk. 
Trends  Stalker/closers tend to get the better of it routing on Tapeta, though if there’s been rain, it can tighten up and be a lot speedier (and inside as well). 
Best Play  #1 AWESOME FIRST (5-1): Returnee hasn’t been out since July and has sprinted twice in his two career starts, but is bred to love added ground and an extra turn, had trouble last time too, has upside, and meets a field there for the taking. 
Bet Types    WPS bet and aggressive leverage single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well.
