Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Gulfstream, Churchill plays
back to news
The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
Gulfstream Park – 2nd race. Post 1:15 ET.
4 – Amanzi Yimpilo (6-1)
First-timer from the Wesley Ward barn will be facing the boys, but she is bred to be precocious and excel on turf. Although her published work tab doesn’t stand out, she appears to be loaded with ability. Ward also trains the morning line favorite Golden Pal (8/5) but the evidence suggests that this daughter of No Nay Never, with top rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. taking the call, actually is the better of the two. Listed at 6-1 on the morning, she offers considerable value both in the win pool and in rolling exotic play.
Churchill Downs – 9th race. Post 5:12 ET.
1 – Summering (9/2)
Returned to winning form with a confidence-building score at Tampa Bay Downs in early April and has trained superbly since, so we’re expecting this daughter of War Front to produce a significant forward move while tackling a tougher group of older fillies and mares. She’s guaranteed an ideal ground-saving trip from her favorable rail post, so at 9/2 on the morning line this stakes-winning filly is a strong win play and rolling exotic single.
