PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  3/5/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 9 
Race overview:  A deep and competitive 10k claimer routing on the Tapeta, with several different ways to go, which is why singling for value is a good way to go. 
Pace:  There’s not a ton here, so expect a bunched group that is slow early and fast late, which means tactical speed is at a premium. 
Trends:  Speed tends to come back routing on the Tapeta, so stalker/closers are preferred.  
Best Play:  #10 Veloce (4-1): Stalker ran huge last time, splitting a pair of closers in a race that fell apart, late, which means he should sit a perfect trip close to the speed here. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the mandatory payout Rainbow 6, and the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
