Gulfstream Selections



FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29

SPOT PLAYS

GULFSTREAM

Race 8

#5 Just the Facts

Sprang to life last time out with the highest last-race Beyer speed figure in this race. Has good speed and will be tough to pass here down at this level with a repeat of his most recent effort, and unlike the favorite in this race, he offers good value at 6-1 odds on the morning line.

 

Race 9

#6 Empirically

Plus play an exacta box w/#5 He’s Bankable

#6 Empirically leads off the day’s best exacta box, coming into this race with added blinkers and first-time Lasix and dropping in class off back-to-back stakes tries. Enters versus maidens for the first time since his Saratoga career debut, which he won but got DQ’d. Ready to regain winning form and looks too tough back in against maidens.

Play in exacta box w/ #5 He’s Bankable, who is the x-factor in this field because he’s never tried turf, but his dirt form has been improving in routes and his recent workouts indicate the barn has been anxiously prepping him for this grass debut. Didn’t miss by much last time at Churchill, and should do no worse today against this field.
