PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  12/31/2022 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 4 
Race overview:  A relatively meek 35k claimer on the turf, with little proven form, save #3 CLASSIC LADY (5-2), who lays over these based on her recent efforts. 
Pace:  There’s not a ton here, so tactical speed, at the very least, should be viewed at a premium. 
Trends:  The turf has not been kind to closers, and horses with early speed have held very well. 
Best Play:  #3 CLASSIC LADY (5-2) (turf only): Stalker has by far the best recent form and many of her main rivals drew poorly in the outside three slots, plus she again gets to run with Lasix. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
