Gulfstream Park - Race 2:  Post Time: 1:04 ET  

6 - Wicksters Dream (5/2)

Claimed in his last three starts, most recently for today's tag of $35,000 at Belmont Park in late October, this lightly-raced gelding appears properly spotted in his first start for new trainer R. Crichton (solid stats with this angle) and lands the cozy outside post that should project him into a soft, pace-stalking position. Fast enough on pure speed figures to beat this field, the son of New Year’s Day has a prior win over this main track and will offer wagering value at or near his morning line of 5/2. 

Gulfstream Park - Race 9:  Post Time: 4:36 ET

3 - Risk Manager (3-1)

Nice colt won his debut on grass at Keeneland at this one mile distance in mid-October and looked like a fairly decent prospect in the process, so we’re expecting this son of Lookin At Lucky to come right back in this competitive first-level allowance affair. The M. Maker-trained juvenile settled in the second flight before accelerating when asked to win going away, and T. Gaffalione, who was aboard in that race, stays aboard. With a sharp series of drills in the interim, he's likely to run even better today, so at 3-1 on the morning line he's worth a play in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.
