PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  2/2/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 9 
Race overview:  A deep and competitive 20k claimer sprinting on the Tapeta. 
Pace:  It should be honest, though it doesn’t look overly heated, so you want a runner with tactical speed, at the very least. 
Trends:  You need to be close sprinting on the Tapeta, as races rarely come back—no matter how fast they go up front. 
Best Play:  #8 THE PREDICAMENT (5-2): Pace presser drew perfectly for his style and enters off a rough trip late, so with clear sailing he figures too tough for this group. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
