Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 2 
Race overview:  A very strong 20k claimer sprinting on the Tapeta, with several different ways you can go in a race the betting public might have trouble narrowing down. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested, as several want to be involved early and often, so being able to lay close but not too close seems ideal. 
Trends:  You want to be close sprinting on the Tapeta, as horses just don’t make up significant ground, seemingly no matter how fast the speed goes early on. 
Best Play:  #4 BIG AND CLASSY (4-1): Class riser looked good beating N2L foes last time and looks to be in a good spot here, as he’s got tactical speed to lay close, in a race where the favorites seem destined to hook up early and often through hot splits. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
