PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  12/29/2022 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 6 
Race overview:  A relatively weak 10k claimer routing on the Tapeta, which means #1 THENORTHREMEMBERS (5-2) will really appreciate what is a hidden class drop. 
Pace:  It looks honest, even for a shorter field, as there are ore than a few here who want to be involved early. 
Trends:  The Tapeta routes have been dominated by stalker/closers, as the speed doesn’t often hold—no matter how slow they go early. 
Best Play:  #1 THENORTHREMEMBERS (5-2): Goes turf-to-Tapeta and has run well over the surface, while facing much better groups than the one here, while also running well under less than optimum race flows. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5, and to kick off the Pk4 as well.
