PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  2/8/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 2 
Race overview:  A decent 25k MCL sprinting on Tapeta, though it looks like #6 RAKA RAKA CRUZ (7-2) needs just clear sailing to post a win. 
Pace:  There’s not a ton here, so expect a bunched group entering the far turn. 
Trends:  You need to be close sprinting on Tapeta, as races rarely fall apart, nor do closers pass them all. 
Best Play:  #6 RAKA RAKA CRUZ (7-2): Class riser likely needed his return and had a ton of trouble too, so from the perfect outside attack post, off that tightener, and with clear sailing, he looks primed. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
