Gulfstream Park Picks – Thursday, February 25, 2021
Gulfstream Park has ten races scheduled on Thursday for our wagering delight, with a full race card of maiden, starter, allowance, and claiming races, half on turf and half on the main track.
Remember that while I review the three richest races here, but you can find Gulfstream’s entire ten-race card at one of our top online racebooks.
Read on for my Gulfstream Park picks and betting tips for Thursday, February 25, 2021.
Picks for Gulfstream Park Race 5
This is a maiden special weight race for three-year-olds running a distance of six furlongs for a purse of $40,000.
I’m going to stick with the 5/2 morning line favorite here — Twice too Many, ridden by Luis Saez. This gelding finished his single career start in second place in late January at Gulfstream, setting himself a solid speed figure despite his involvement in a three-horse jostle at the break.
I can’t resist a value show wager on the 30/1 longshot Palemma, with Jesus M. Rios aboard. This colt has no starting record, but his times in recent workouts are very encouraging. It could happen.
- Win: Twice too Many 5/2
- Show: Palemma 30/1
Pick for Gulfstream Park Race 8
This is an allowance optional claiming race for Florida-bred fillies and mares four years old and upward running a distance of 5-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $44,000.
I like the 2/1 morning line favorite for this race — Loriloupes, with Emisael Jaramillo in the irons. This four-year-old filly moneyed four of her five career starts, winning two.
As far as value show bets are concerned, I see you eyeballing that 20/1 longshot, thinking something along the lines of “it could happen.” Trust me: It is not going to happen.
- Win: Loriloupes 2/1
Picks for Gulfstream Park Race 9
This is an allowance optional claiming race for three-year-old fillies running a distance of five furlongs on turf for a purse of $47,000.
I like the 8/1 sleeper for the win in this race — Reinagol, ridden by Edgard Zayas. This filly moneyed all three of her career starts, winning one.
For comparison, the morning line favorite — La Libertee — finished in the money for two of her three career starts, winning one. Her single non-money start was in the Untapable Stakes (Black Type) last September at Kentucky Downs, where a stumble at the break lost her jockey and earned her a DNF.
At 12/1, Lambeau Lady, with Javier Castellano aboard, looks good for a value show wager. This filly moneyed both of her career starts, winning one.
- Win: Reinagol 8/1
- Show: Lambeau Lady 12/1
