Jeff Siegel's Best Bets: Look who's Boss
back to news
The Xpressbet analyst offers his plays for Fridays and Saturdays.
Gulfstream Park – 10th race. Post Time: 4:45 ET
8 – Lady Boss (10-1)
First-timer has shown excellent speed in morning drills, including a bullet gate work last week in :47 1/5, the fastest of 52 for the distance. The daughter of Street Boss goes for a strong jockey-trainer combo in a field that doesn’t have an abundance of early zip, so if she breaks with her field the Elizabeth Dobles-trained juvenile should be extremely dangerous at this abbreviated sprint trip of five furlongs on grass. At 10-1 on the morning, we’ll make her a good price play in the win pool and in all of the exotic plays as well.
Belmont Park – 9th race. Post Time: 5:36 ET
4-Build to Suit (9/2)
Been away since October but has won off a 15-month layoff in the past, so we doubt he’ll be rusty in this year’s edition of the Commentator Stakes for New York-bred older horses. Lightly-raced at age 6 with just 10 career starts (six wins), the veteran in Chad Brown’s barn likes to settle in mid-pack and produce a strong late kick, and in a race that projects to have quick early fractions the son of Dominus should be capable of producing the last run. He’ll offer wagering value in the win pool and in rolling exotic play at or near his morning line of 9/2.
