Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 12 
Race overview:  A relatively modest renewal of the G3 Holy Bull, in a race that is certainly there for the taking if someone pops up with a lifetime best—which is the hope with #1 LORD MILES (4-1). 
Pace:  It doesn’t look overly heated, so expect a bunched field, with #6 Legacy Isle (7-2) leading the way. 
Trends:  This is a short stretch/first finish line race, so once they hit the far turn, they don’t have far to go, which means you better be in contention at that point, as closers are way up against it.  
Best Play:  #1 LORD MILES (4-1): Uber talented but inexperienced colt has run in spots in both races, and when he feels like it, he has a strong kick, but he also seems to lose focus early and leave himself too much to do late, though he was the only one to run on in the Mucho Macho Man, he should love the added ground and turn, and the gut says the blinkers are what will (finally) put him over the top today. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
