PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  3/23/21 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  9 
Race overview  A strong AOC for f/ms 4up going 1m70 yards on Tapeta (note this was originally scheduled for turf but will VERY likely be run on Tapeta after heavy rains Friday that are going into Saturday). 
Pace  Depending on who stays in, it should be honest up front, as a few on the outside want to go early. 
Trends  When it rains the Tapeta can tighten up and play to speed and inside runners, which is traditionally not the case going long; with that being said, it’s best to watch the earlier races to get a gauge. 
Best Play  #3 FIVE TOWNS (5-1): Euro-bred had a really rough trip in her U.S. debut and first start for Motion, in what was off a September layoff, when she had a ton of traffic on the turf, and she figures to move up from that, and she has an all-weather win too. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  GP POD (through 3/10): 61-17-10-10 ($1.69/$4.86)
