Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 3 
Race overview:  A seemingly average 1m MSW for 2yos that looks ripe for a newcomer, which is exactly whet #2 EMPEROR’S APPEAL (5-2) is, off an impressive debut at CD. 
Pace:  It figures to be honest, as several are stretching out after chasing going shorter, and none are a guarantee to get this trip. 
Trends:  You need to be close going this one-turn mile, as horses just don’t make up a ton of ground if they are behind entering the far turn. 
Best Play:  #2 EMPEROR’S APPEAL (5-2): Exits a brutal debut at CD, when he blew the start and spotted them 6-7 lengths yet ran on late, and he should only be that much tighter here off that trial run. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
