Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.

Gulfstream Park Race 4 (2:01 pm ET)

#4 Mine For Passion (3-1 ML)

Expect this sprinter to stretch out to a longer distance with a clear early pace advantage and be tough to run down in the stretch. Showed improvement in her third start (her first at Gulfstream Park) and is set to notch her first career victory. Win bet. Daily Double 4-3 to our pick in the next race as well.

Gulfstream Park Race 5 (2:32 pm ET)

#3 The Great Kath (5-1 ML)

Big-time jockey upgrade to Hall of Famer Javier Castellano is the key after narrowly missing by less than 1 length in her last try against similar competition. Castellano has been dialed in lately (23% wins, 19% flat-bet profit in 2022). The Great Kath is best as a turf sprinter and that's what she gets to do in this spot. Win bet.
