Please double check all program numbers prior to wagering

 Gulfstream    Race 4   7 furlongs   Claiming $12,500 (2:58 ET)

Best Value Play: #8 No Act (6/1)

Most Likely Winner: #1 Sir Edgar (5/2)

Other Contenders: #5 Unleash the Humor (3/1), #6 Megalith (5/1)

Analysis: Sir Edgar can either take the lead or sit just off the pace, but in either case he looks to have the edge in this event. Unleash the Humor is another threat to be close but can win off the pace and he sports an impressive career record. Megalith comes back after a rest and a couple of good works. He may benefit from a speed duel. No Act may be a bit behind in the class department but he woke up in his last with a huge closing effort, and that may be what it takes to win this one if the pace is hot.

Gulfstream   Race 9  6 furlongs  Optional Claiming $10,000 3L (5:33 ET)

Best Value Play: #5 Silver Sashay (6/1)

Most Likely Winner: #2 Sydney Rules (4/5)

Other Contenders: #3 Sherry Angel (4/1) #4 Daddys Jewel (9/2)

Analysis: Sydney Rules has won 4 in a row and 5 of his last 7. He will surely be the controlling speed in the field and it looks like he will go coast to coast unless there is an unforeseen meltdown. Sherry Angel likes to come from off the pace but looks to be in this one for a minor award. Daddys Jewel is no slouch and returns to Gulfstream, which he seems to prefer. Expect him to be flying late. Silver Sashay may not attract much attention but a look back says he has the class to win this one, and if the pace is solid he could pick up the pieces.
