PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau       
Date  3/21/24
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  9 
Race overview  A solid AOC for 4up going 7 ½ Fs on the turf. 
Pace  There’s a ton here, as more than a few want to go fast early, which suggests this will be won from off-the-pace. 
Trends  Speed plays on the turf, especially when it’s fast and firm, as horses have trouble making up ground, but we’re going to go against that trend here (unless scratches come into play), as there things look very hot and contested up front. 
Best Play  #2 ENGLISH BEE (2-1) (turf only): Stalker took all the worst of it at the break in his return last time, when he got shuffled back soon after the start and basically was allowed to jog around, but that’s behind him now, he’ll love all the pace up front, and he lays over these on class as well. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  GP POD (through 3/10): 61-17-10-10 ($1.69/$4.86)
