Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 9 
Race overview:  A head-scratcher of a Mucho Macho Man for newly minted 3yos going 1m on the main, as it brings about a mixed bag trying to find their level and figure out if they belong on path to the Florida Derby. 
Pace:  It looks honest and potentially contested, as this is a trip that’s new to most, a few of which are stretch out sprinters. 
Trends:  You don’t want to drop too far out of it at this trip, as it’s tough to make up ground if you’re not in contention on the far turn. 
Best Play:  #10 LORD MILES (8-1): Exits an absolutely breathtaking debut, where he looked like he had no idea what he was doing early, only to kick it in late and run away, and this trip should be ideal. 
Bet Types:    WPS bet and an aggressive single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Meet/POD Stats:  GP Championship Meet (through 12/26): 10-1-4-0
