Gulfstream Park Picks – Wednesday, February 3, 2021
The thoroughbred racing week continues at Gulfstream Park with ten maiden, allowance, and claiming races on both the turf course and the main track.
Don’t forget that while I review the three richest races here, you can find Gulfstream Park’s entire ten-race card for Wednesday — including horses, jockeys, trainers, M/L odds, and wagering options — at one of our best horse racing betting sites.
Read on for my Gulfstream Park picks and betting tips for Wednesday, February 3, 2021.
Pick for Gulfstream Park Race 4
This is an allowance optional claiming race for three-year-olds running a distance of five furlongs on turf for a purse of $47,000.
I’m going with the third-favored (7/2) entry in this race — No Que No, with Edgard Zayas in the irons. This colt moneyed both of his career starts, winning one.
The longest odds in this run are 15/1, and that horse won’t be cashing a paycheck at the finish line, so keep your long money in your pocket.
- Win: No Que No 7/2
Picks for Gulfstream Park Race 8
This is an allowance race for Florida-bred three-year-old fillies running a distance of 5-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $40,000.
I like the fourth-favored (5/1) entry for the win in this race — Include the Beast, with Luis Saez aboard. This filly won both of her career starts, and it’s kinda hard to argue with that — in fact, it’s impossible to find a better record in this field.
And the 20/1 longshot in this race — Splash Cash, ridden by Corey Lanerie — looks good for a value show ticket. This filly moneyed two of her four career starts, with her only poor performance being the FTBOA Florida Sire My Dear Girl Stakes (Black Type) last September when she bumped the gate and then a neighbor, leading to a ninth-place finish.
- Win: Include the Beast 5/1
- Show: Splash Cash 20/1
Picks for Gulfstream Park Race 9
This is an allowance optional claiming race for fillies and mares four years old and upward running a distance of seven furlongs for a purse of $48,000.
I’m in agreement with the morning line here, so my win ticket is for the 2/1 favorite — Hopeful Growth, with Irad Ortiz, Jr. in the irons. This four-year-old filly moneyed five of her seven career starts, winning three. Her latest two money finishes were a third in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (Grade II) at Pimlico last October and a first in the Monmouth Oaks (Grade III) in August.
And at 12/1, I like the Crumb Bun, ridden by Luca Panici, for a value show wager. This five-year-old mare had money finishes in 14 of her 24 career starts, winning five.
- Win: Hopeful Growth 2/1
- Show: Crumb Bun 12/1
