PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  1/24/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  2 
Race overview  An extremely meek 12.5k MCL for 3up going 1-mile on the main. 
Pace  It looks honest enough, as more than a few want to be involved early on, or at least up close. 
Trends  Speed plays on the main, so you need to be close early on, as horses don’t make up significant ground, especially in these 1m routes where fields can be very spread out by the far turn. 
Best Play  #1 BATTALION BOUND (9-5): Stiff class dropper meets a field he should relish, will be closer early on the stretchout, and makes the third start of his career as well. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP and single in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
