Track Gulfstream Park
Race 10
Overview A solid renewal of the 2-mile Jerkens, with several who have a winning chance, though all but one looks severely pace compromised.
Pace There’s absolutely none here, which means #3 ABAAN (4-1) is as loose as Saez wants him to be, and not only is he loose, but his main rivals don’t have a hint of early foot.
Trends They just haven’t run enough races on the turf to get a real feel, but being close—or loose in front—is never a bad thing.
Best Bet ABAAN
Number 3
Morning Line (4-1)
Best Bet Overview #3 ABAAN (4-1): Pletcher runner is lightly raced and has plenty of upside, and while he’s a tick below a few on paper, he’s also is a confirmed Lone F in a field littered with stalkers and closers, which only adds to his appeal.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
