PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  12/23/2022 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 5 
Race overview:  A wide-open OC/SAL routing on the turf, with several who have winning credentials. 
Pace:  There’s not a ton on paper, which could compromise the chances of the closers, while flattering those with early foot. 
Trends:  The turf has played to early speed since its return, and several who have flown early have stuck late, so, at the very least, you better have tactical speed. 
Best Play:  #2 Pegs A.K. Girl (5-1) (turf only): Class dropper has been freshened off a close 6th in a good 50k starter at BAQ, is well-drawn, and has Lopez, which means an aggressive ride is in the offing. 
Bet Types:    WPS bet and a must-use/potential leverage single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well. 
Meet/POD Stats:  GP Sunshine Meet: 412-104-87-51 ($1.43/$4.70)
