PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  1/7/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 10 
Race overview:  An extremely strong and competitive AOC for older going a one-turn mile on the main track. 
Pace:  It should be sharp early, with #1 Great King (8-1) going from the inside, but from there there’s not much, which means #7 PICKING UP PENNIES (6-1) can get a dream trip pressing from the outside. 
Trends:  Speed is never a bad thing on the main track, so being close early is usually a big help late. 
Best Play:  #7 PICKING UP PENNIES (6-1): Enters after a freshening off a lifetime score in October and should trip out, plus he gets the benefit of catching the favorite (#6 Pappacap 2-1) off an extended break, so you’d think he may need this. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Meet/POD Stats:  GP Champ. Meet: 57-12-13-8 ($1.26/$4.42 through 1/1) 

GP Champ. Meet POD: 6-2-2-1 ($1.97/$6.93 through 1/1)
