God's Tipster picks Thursday's 1st and 2nd races at Gulfstream Park after all in-the-money finishers yesterday
First post is at 1:10 pm EDT.
Wednesday’s Recap from Gulfstream Park:
Race 3: 3rd@ 7.20-1
Race 4: 2nd@ 12.10-1
Race 9: 2nd@ 6.00-1
Race 10: 3rd@ 2.00-1
Two seconds and two thirds from four selections on our Wednesday race card is a bit frustrating but it was nice to get a good run from each. In Race 3, Shooting was wandering all over the track and checked in third. In Race 4, our selection - Kate’s Kingdom at odds of 12-1 was a diminishing neck shy of running down an even money front runner Por Que No. In Race 9 I thought Call Curt would be near the lead and he was. Took the lead turning for home and held off everyone but Pillar Mountain, and Addi wrapped the day up checking in a non-threatening third in the final race.
Motivated to exact some revenge, let’s take a look at Thursday’s sunny and mild day at Gulfstream Park where we expect a fast main track and a firm turf course:
Race 1: Emperor’s Song - 1 pt win
We’re kicking off the day with a bomb. We played Emperor’s Song last time out at 15-1 and he finished a wide and closing 5th beaten only 3 3/4 lengths in a similar spot. He traveled 35 additional feet than the winner did that day and without that additional ground he had to cover, he might’ve won the race. It’s quite possible today that our favorite, Discreet Tune, will go to the lead from the rail and never look back, however Emperor’s Song will offer good value with his low profile connections and muddied up running lines.

Race 2: King Cairo - 2 pts win - BEST BET
Maiden claimers run 7 furlongs here and this is a 6 horse affair so I’ll take a second to break down the field. The three first time starters have no breeding whatsoever indicating that either one will be the precocious type. Workouts are nothing special. The two horses aside from our selection have run decidedly better on turf than dirt. When it comes down to it, not only does King Cairo look dominant on paper based on his superior numbers but literally nothing else stands out about any of the other runners. King Cairo drops from Maiden Specials to maiden claimers and cuts back in distance. His trainer also wins with a whopping 26% of his maiden claiming starters with a robust sample size of 50.
Best of luck 🍀🍀🍀🍀 to all our members playing races from Gulfstream Park on Thursday!
