Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

Gulfstream    Race 1,    5 1/2 furlongs Claiming $10,000 3L (1:15 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 Smart Humor  (6/1)

Most Likely Winner: #4 DK Edge  (3/1)

Other Contenders: #3 Circle Valley (5/1), #10 Antonacci (5/2)

Analysis: DK Edge has posted good numbers, has plenty of back class and has finished in the money 9 of 11 trips to the post. Circle Valley is always bet and loves to finish in the money as well. His consistency may pay off in this race. Antonacci will try to make it work going coast to coast and he may shake free to accomplish that. Smart Humor fits well in here and may be ready to pop in his second race after a freshener.

Gulfstream  Race 3,   7 furlongs  Claiming $6,250 (2:15 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 The Chill Zone (5/1)

Most Likely Winner: #1 Monroe Court (3/1)

Other Contenders: #2 Vero’s Hero (5/2) #7 Running Wildcat (4/1)

Analysis: Monroe Court has issued top quality performances in back to back races. She looks to be the one to beat and has plenty of speed to win. Vero’s Hero tries to make it 3 in a row but will have to run the best she can. Running Wildcat keeps his high percentage rider and is prime for running in his second race off a layoff. The Chill Zone has faced tougher company and drops for a new barn at a lower price.
