Gulfstream Race 3,   7 furlongs Optional Claiming $12,500 (2:00 ET)
Best Value Play: #2 Courtney Ryan (5/1)
Most Likely Winner: #5 Rebecca’s Surprise (9/5)
Other Contenders: #6 Don’tcallmecharley (4/1), #8 Tex Appeal (7/2)

Analysis: Rebecca’s Surprise has a dozen career wins and is in top form for a solid barn. Don’tcallmecharley runs for a good barn, takes a big drop and has an excellent resume. Tex Appeal was claimed by Marty Wolfson and immediately drops in class, while in good form. Courtney Ryan is one tough mare and seeks her 21st career victory-hard to dismiss.


Gulfstream Race 6,   6 furlongs Claiming $6,250 2L (3:30 ET)
Best Value Play: #6 Keep in Mind (10/1)
Most Likely Winner: #4 Fair Shake (5/1)
Other Contenders: #3 Gonna Tell Papa (4/1) #7 Princessbellaoncal (3/1)

Analysis: Fair Shake looks to be the best of the bunch, lightly raced compared to others and has faced tougher in his brief career. Gonna Tell Papa comes in from Louisville off a layoff and after being claimed for a higher price. Princessbellaoncal has a terrible career record, but has tossed out some speed figures that cannot be ignored, plus she has plenty of early speed. Keep in Mind returns for a second shot after a freshener and takes a drop in class.
