Gulfstream Selections



THURSDAY, JANUARY 4

SPOT PLAYS

GULFSTREAM

Race 5

#7 Creaky Cricket

Plus play an exacta box w/#3 Runaway Posse

#7 Creaky Cricket has a great shot to post the upset in this race at overlaid 20-1 odds on the morning line. Chased a fast pace in a fast 7 1/2F turf race last time and outran 25-1 odds to gamely hold on for second in a race where the deepest closers took advantage of the pace to run 1-3-4. Must respect and adds great value to the exactas, even with the favorite.

Play in exacta box w/ #3 Runaway Posse, who had been rallying late in recent one-turn turf sprints in New York, indicating this stretch to 7 1/2F around two turns might be just right.  Should be the favorite, but has high speed figures and must be included in exacta boxes along with the upset top pick.

 

Race 7

#7 Golda

Knocking on the door with a pair of second-place finishes to begin her career, including the local debut last time which came off a 2 ½-month layoff. Now ready to improve further in this second race off the layoff for a trainer that has won with 3 of his last 11 starters second-time off the layoff for a strong positive return on investment. Has the speed to lead these at 5 1/2F and never look back.
