Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 7 
Race overview:  A strong AOC sprinting 7Fs on the main that marks the return of multiple graded stakes winner #2 Dr Post (7-5), but off a 13-month layoff, the time is right to beat him with the equally classy, and in-form #1 ENDORSED (2-1), who has a big recency edge as well. 
Pace:  There’s plenty of speed to the outside, so things should be cooking up front. 
Trends:  You need to be close on the main track, as it’s hard to make up significant ground, especially sprinting. 
Best Play:  #1 ENDORSED (2-1): Classy sort doesn’t have the resume of Dr Post but catches him at the right time, as he was just a strong 2nd last, will get first run, and won’t (likely) be favored either. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive win bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
