Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 2 
Race overview:  A modest bottom-level N3L at 1-mile on the main, with several coming in off mixed form, which isn’t the case with #4 LITTLE BELITA (6-1), who has caught good groups in fast races for the level of late, and more than held her own. 
Pace:  There are no burners here, so you better be able to lay close early. 
Trends:  The one-turn mile races are tricky, but you want to be able to stick close early, as the field can get gapped out entering the far turn, which makes it near impossible to make up significant ground. 
Best Play:  #4 LITTLE BELITA (6-1): In-form runner has run well of late at the level, in a pair of races that were better than the group she meets here, and her tactical speed will put her in an envious spot on or near the early lead. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet at 5-2 or better while getting some additional built-in value by singling her in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
