PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  1/5/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  8 
Race overview  An AOC for 4up sprinting 5 ½ Fs on the turf, in a race that looks destined to get the classy #8 Carotari (8-5) a long overdue win. 
Pace  There’s not a ton for a turf sprint, so you better be close early. 
Trends  Speed plays sprinting on the turf, especially when it’s firm, so stalker/closers are at a decided disadvantage. 
Best Play  #8 CAROTARI (8-5) (turf only): Classy runner enters off a July freshening for a Lynch barn that has been live all meet, has Irad, is 8-4-2-1 over the local lawn, and lays over these on class too. 
Bet Types    Aggressive win bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
