Date  1/20/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  8 
Race overview  A deep and competitive Florida-bred AOC for 3&up going 5 ½ Fs on Tapeta. 
Pace  It will be extremely fast—and potentially contested—as #7 Cruzin Man (7-5) always flies early, and faces a few who want to press/chase him. 
Trends  You want to be close sprinting on Tapeta, as horses rarely come from too far back over a surface that caters to on-the-pace types. 
Best Play  #4 BELLA FUTURE (4-1): Tactical sort had plenty of trouble last time yet was beaten just a length, has the ability to lay close early, and needs only clear sailing to pull the mild surprise. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well.
