Gulfstream Park Picks for Saturday, May 16, 2020

In addition to the regular maiden, claiming, and allowance races, Gulfstream Park is presenting three very lucrative stakes races on Saturday, May 16, 2020—the Roar Stakes, the Powder Break Stakes, and the Musical Romance Stakes.

It’s been raining all week in Hallandale Beach, Florida, and it’s not going to stop just because it’s Saturday. The forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms, temps in the mid-80s, and winds at around 9 mph.

I’m covering the three stakes races here, but you can find the full card of Gulfstream Park races at any of the top online horse racing betting sites.

Post time for the first race at Gulfstream Park on Saturday is 12:45 PM (EDT). My picks and tips follow below.

RACE 6 – Roar Stakes

  • Post Time: 3:16 PM
  • Purse: $75,000
  • Type: STAKES
  • Distance: 6-1/2 furlongs
  • Conditions: Three Year Olds

Race 6 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Ricki Ticki Taffi, E J Zayas, 12/1
  • 2 With Verve, E S Prado, 3/1
  • 3 Double Crown, C A Torres, 5/1
  • 4 Cajun Casanova, M A Vasquez, 4/1
  • 5 Green Light Go, L Saez, 6/5
  • 6 Ournationonparade, N Juarez, 10/1

Race 6 Prediction and Pick

I like the second-favored horse in this race at 3/1—With Verve, ridden by Edger Prado. Eight career starts, five money finishes with four of those wins—plus a near-pole post position—says this horse can do it.

Race 6 Tip

None of the longer odds competitors in this field seem destined to overcome any of the favorites.

  • With Verve

RACE 9 – Powder Break Stakes

  • Post Time: 4:52 PM
  • Purse: $75,000
  • Type: STAKES
  • Distance: 1 mile (dirt)
  • Conditions: Fillies And Mares, Three Years Old And Upward. If deemed inadvisable to run this race over the turf course, it will be run on the main track at One Mile

Race 9 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Noor Sahara, I Ortiz, Jr., 7/2
  • 2 Jakarta, E J Zayas, 20/1
  • 3 Bella Ciao (MTO), I Ortiz, Jr., 4/1
  • 4 Valedictorian, J Bravo, 10/1
  • 5 Silver Kitten, SCRATCHED
  • 6 Great Sister Diane, M A Vasquez, 20/1
  • 7 Valiance, N Juarez, 6/1
  • 8 Tapit Today, D Davis, 9/2
  • 9 Goodbye Brockley, F Olsson, 30/1
  • 10 Got Stormy, L Saez, 9/5
  • 11 W W Fitzy, M Meneses, 20/1

Race 9 Prediction and Pick

I favor the 7/2 Noor Sahara, in the pole position with jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., over moneyline favorite Got Stormy, with Luis Saez aboard. Noor Sahara has a good record, with eight career starts, four money finishes, two of which were wins.

Race 9 Tip

Valiance, ridden by Nik Juarez, is undervalued in this race at 6/1. She has three career starts, all of which she has won.

  • Noor Sahara

RACE 10 – Musical Romance Stakes

  • Post Time: 5:24 PM
  • Purse: $100,000
  • Type: STAKES
  • Distance: 7 furlongs
  • Conditions: Florida-Bred Fillies And Mares, Three Years Old And Upward

Race 10 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Liza Star, M A Vasquez, 15/1
  • 2 Bellera, L Saez, 4/1
  • 3 Wildwood’s Beauty, I Ortiz, Jr., 7/2
  • 4 Two Sixty, E J Zayas, 12/1
  • 5 Picara, R Maragh, 30/1
  • 6 Starship Bonita, J Bravo, 30/1
  • 7 Lady’s Island, E Jaramillo, 7/5
  • 8 Oceans of Love, D Davis, 20/1
  • 9 J P’s Delight, N Juarez, 5/1

Race 10 Prediction and Pick

I’m going with the 7/5 moneyline favorite in this race, Lady’s Island, with veteran jockey Emisael Jaramillo aboard. This six-year-old mare has won more than half her career starts (29 starts, 22 money finishes, 15 wins).

Race 10 Tip

None of the longer odds in this field have a snowball’s chance, but you might take a look at the 5/1 J P’s Delight, with Nik Juarez aboard. Six career starts, four money finishes, all of which were wins. Yeah, maybe.

  • Lady’s Island
