Gulfstream Park Picks – Thursday, September 10, 2020

| September 9, 2020 11:36 pm PDT

Gulfstream Park’s nine-race card features the regular assortment of allowance, claiming, and maiden races for Thursday, September 10, 2020.

It’s been a soggy week so far at Gulfstream Park and you can expect Thursday to be no different.

By the way: While I cover the three richest races at Gulfstream Park, you can find their entire list of matches at the top horse racing betting sites.

In the meantime, take a look at my predictions, picks, and prognostications for Gulfstream Park’s three richest races today.

Gulfstream Park Pick for Race 3

This is a maiden special weight race for fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of seven furlongs for a purse of $45,000.

I agree with the morning line here, so I’m going with the 6/5 favorite, Goodbye Gaby, with Leonel Reyes in the irons. This three-year-old filly moneyed two of her five career starts.

No long odds entries worth risking your bankroll, so let’s move on.

  • Win: Goodbye Gaby 6/5

Gulfstream Park Picks for Race 4

This is a maiden claiming race for two-year-olds running a distance of five furlongs on turf for a purse of $39,500.

I like the second-favored (7/2) entry in this race—Grab the Chance, with Emisael Jaramillo aboard. This colt, like most of this field, has no starts on record, but has performed well in recent workouts.

Plenty of longshots in this maiden race, but the longest I see as value is 15/1: King Tarzan, ridden by Edgar S. Prado. This gelding did very well in his recent workouts at Gulfstream Park West.

  • Win: Grab the Chance 7/2
  • Show: King Tarzan 15/1

Picks for Gulfstream Park Race 8

This is an allowance optional claiming race for fillies and mares three years old and upward running a distance of one mile for a purse of $47,000.

I’m sticking with the 2/1 morning line favorite here—Gibberish, with Emisael Jaramillo in the irons. This filly moneyed in two of her five career starts, winning one of them.

I see value in a show ticket on the 12/1 Free to Fly, ridden by Edgard Zayas. This four-year-old filly finished in the money 11 of her 26 starts, winning four of them, but I believe she can do better than that, and Zayas is just the jockey to make it happen.

  • Win: Gibberish 2/1
  • Win: Free to Fly 12/1

Gulfstream Park isn’t the only track out there with profitable races today. Here are the other two I’ve examined.
