“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Date 12/22/2023

Featured track Gulfstream Park

Race number 5


Race overview A solid 25k claimer for f/m 3up going 1-mile on the turf.


Pace Expect a tight group and a sprint off the far turn, as there’s very little, if any, true speed signed on.

Trends Speed has done very well on the turf, so at the very least, a tactical gear is preferred, as horses just aren’t going to come from too far back, unless there’s a real meltdown.


Best Play #2 FOUNDER’S DAY (5-2) (turf only): Class dropper has been facing better on turf, is back with Hess, who did some good work with her earlier in her career, has been working well, and drew a perfect ground-saving post for her stalking style as well.

Bet Types Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well.
