Gulfstream Park // 05-MAR
We're back for Saturday at the track and we've got a great day of racing ahead of us! We've got cards at Aqueduct and Santa Anita - each with lots of stakes, including a Kentucky Derby Prep race at each park. But we're starting our day off in Florida watching the thoroughbreds at Gulfstream Park. They, as well, have a stellar lineup today with 13 races, tons of runners and 9 stakes - 8 of which are graded:
R3: $150K Canadian Turf (GIII-T)
R5: $150K The Very One (GIII-T)
R6: $200K Davona Dale (GII) / Kentucky Oaks Prep (50-20-10-5)
R7: $125K Palm Beach
R9: $150K Honey Fox (GIII-T)
R10: $200K WinStar Gulfstream Park Mile (GII)
R11: $200K Mac Diarmida (GII-T) R12: $400K Fountain of Youth (GII) / Kentucky Derby Prep (50-20-10-5) R13: $125K Herecomesthebride (GIII-T)
For a little icing on the cake, races 6 and 12 are actually Kentucky Oaks and Derby Prep races, with the top four finishers earing points (50-20-10-5, respectively) towards the big dance. You will not want to miss it! Running conditions are looking great with firm turf, a fast track and temperatures right around 80 with partly cloudy skies. That sounds like Springs Break weather to us!

Let's check out today's Best Value Horse (BVH). What's our BVH, you ask? Our Best Value Horse is probably not going off as the favorite and is unlikely to go off with the longest odds. Simply put - our Best Value Horse is a runner our very own @TSDaveW likes with morning line odds around 7-1. This will be a horse that should be competitive, and if it hits, you'll be glad you played it! Odd, of course, change throughout the day, however, we're lookin' at Morning Line Odds when making these picks.
