PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  2/1/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  3 
Race overview  a very meek 16k claimer for 3yos going 1m70 on Tapeta. 
Pace  There’s not much on paper, which means stretchout sprinter #4 ICE THE KICKER (2-1) could shake loose early. 
Trends  Speed usually has trouble lasting routing on Tapeta, and therefore a rating gear is usually preferred, though if you’re loose and controlling (and the best horse), it’s never a bad thing either. 
Best Play  #4 ICE THE KICKER (2-1): Sprinter is bred to love the added ground/turn he gets here, catches four (of the six entered) out of a very weak 1/6 heat, and should either be controlling early, or sitting just off what looks like a very tepid pace. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
