PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  2/24/2024 
Featured track  Gulfstream Park 
Race number  4 
Race overview  A very strong MSW for 3yos going 1 1/8 miles on the main track. 
Pace  Expect things to be tepid early, as the entire field-of-7 tries this distance for the first time, including a few who have no arly speed at all, which means the ability to lay close early will be big. 
Trends  Dirt routes are rare in these parts, but you won’t see them won from the back, so you have to be close early. 
Best Play  #4 BATTEN DOWN (9-5): Regally bred Juddmonte homebred is bred to be a superstar and showed a bit in is debut, when he chased wild splits against two bigtime prospects before tiring, but on the stretchout that will play today, and allow him first run. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well.
