PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  4/2/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Gulfstream Park – Race 1 
Race overview:  A below-average 16k claimer routing on the turf, which means the class riser #3 WINNING FACTOR (5-2) should be tough. 
Pace:  It looks on the slow side, so expect a compact group early and a sprint off the far turn. 
Trends:  You want to be close on the turf, as horses don’t come back often, and it played out that way in the middle-distance routes Saturday. 
Best Play:  #3 WINNING FACTOR (5-2): Veteran impressed winning on the Tapeta last time in a race where they might have pulled one over, and his back form on turf says he’ll be tough right back. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to kick off the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
