Thursday Horse Racing: God's Tipster picks two live longshots at Gulfstream, recaps Wednesday Keeneland winner
Rain is in the forecast for South Florida.
Wednesday’s Recap from Keeneland:
Race 3: 1st@ 7.50-1 (UK odds) 4.20-1 (US)
Race replay here.
After two scratches, we were left with one selection for the day and Ready to Pounce came through with an emphatic score winning off by 4 3/4 lengths over the race favorite. I heard from a few members from the UK who got odds ranging from 10-1 to 16-1 on this runner. Hats off to you!
Let’s get crack-a-lackin’ on Thursday’s card from Gulfstream Park where there’s a 30% chance of showers. We’re going to handicap for fast and firm conditions and pray for the weather Gods to cooperate. No best bet today. I’ve got a pair of live longshots instead and one mid-priced pick.
Race 4 - Deptford Warrior - 1 pt win (ML: 15-1 US)
Maiden claimers race on turf and sure, we could pick Alonzo Mosely, the favorite and the likeliest winner breaking from the rail. But he’s likely to face more pace pressure today than he did last time out and that may set up for a closer. We’re backing a bit of a wild card named Deptford Warrior who comes from the Phil Serpe barn who knows how to fire at a price. This runner is out of a dam named Ladywell Court who was also trained by Serpe. As a matter of fact, this runner has 3 siblings to race and 2 of them are stakes winners on grass. All three siblings were the precocious type and all three were trained by... you guessed it. Phil Serpe. You never know with first time starters but this one appears to have some class based on her pedigree. Value play.

Race 9 - Honolua Bay - 1 pt win (ML: 30-1 US)
Rough-looking group of maiden claimers so why not take a shot at a price? Honolua Bay’s form is totally muddied up with her last two starts on dirt. Her turf form is better but here’s what’s interesting: Trainer E. Loza, who wins with a whopping 27% of his turf sprinters just inherited this runner. On Feb. 26 they gave her her first 5 furlong turf workout of her career and it didn’t look terrible. She’s actually got the breeding to handle it and with the new trainer, we’re looking for her to post an upset to close out the card.
Best of luck 🍀🍀🍀 to all our members playing Thursday’s races from Gulfstream Park
