PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  12/26/2022 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 3 
Race overview:  A competitive 6.25k claimer sprinting 6Fs on the main. 
Pace:  It looks honest though not overly heated, as several want to be close, but none have true sprint speed either. 
Trends:  You need to be close on the main track, as it’s hard to make up significant ground, especially sprinting. 
Best Play:  #3 STARSHIP NUGGET (2-1): Dangerous pace player was 3rd to a few here (#8 and #4) but now goes off the claim for Figueroa (6-for-15/40%) and lures Irad, which says he can make up the 1 ¼ lengths on his two main rivals. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive win bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
