Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 8 
Race overview:  A solid race for the Florida-bred AOC level, as there is some talent here, none more so than #4 FROSTED OATS (3-1), who may be poised for a strong 2023. 
Pace:  There’s very little here, which suggests the fresh speed of #4 FROSTED OATS (3-1) will be on display, and figures to have her setting up shop on a loose lead. 
Trends:  You want to be close on the turf, as horses just aren’t coming from too far out of it, especially at this shorter 7 ½-furlong trip. 
Best Play:  #4 FROSTED OATS (3-1): Returnee finally broke through when last seen in June (when Lasix was added) and now runs for the first time against state breds for Mott, who is 21% off this elongated break, and she seems to have a decided race flow edge with her speed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
