Date  1/21/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  8 
Race overview  A competitive renewal of the Sunshine Turf for Florida breds, 4up, at 1 1/16 miles on turf. 
Pace  The defending champion #5 Roaring Forties (6-1) will be in front, with #4 BOPPY O (7-2) likely stalking from close range. 
Trends  Speed can dominate on the turf, especially if it’s firm, as horses can get carried home by a course that routinely plays to front runners. 
Best Play  #4 BOPPY O (7-2) (turf only): Newly turned 4yo certainly needed his comeback off a long break last time, and he ran well to be 3rd while being too close early to a pace that fell apart, so with that behind him, expect a big move forward. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
