PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 9 
Race overview:  A strong AOC routing on the turf doe 3yos, with several lightly raced and talented sophomores entered.  
Pace:  It looks hot and contested, as several here have shown the affinity for running clos early, including a pair of stretch out sprinters. 
Trends:  You don’t want to drop out the back on the turf, as speed plays, so at the very least you better be able to lay midpack early. 
Best Play:  #3 SENDERO (5-1) (turf only): Restricted stakes winner has run well in open stakes as well but had a nightmare trip last time—while making a move towards the leaders—so on the drop, in a speedy race, he should get set up, provided he gets a fair run of it. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
