PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  12/2/2023
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  9 
Race overview  The Sabal Palms, a 100k handicap for 3up at 1 1/16 miles on the Tapeta. 
Pace  There’s none here to keep #2 VOLCANIC (9-2) from making a loose and lonely lead and controlling things on the front end. 
Trends  The Tapeta routes are tilted towards stalker/closers, and generally being down inside is not the spot to be, though a good horse (like Volcanic) can certainly wire them. 
Best Play  #2 VOLCANIC (9-2): Lone F looks as loose and can be here, just wired while flying on the lead, and is 4-for-5 over the GP Tapeta, not to mention he has a huge tactical edge over his two main rivals (#9 and #6)/  
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
