Jeremy Plonk's Best Bets for Thursday (1-6-22)

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

Gulfstream Park Race 5 (2:31 pm ET)

#6 Fiery Hart (3-1 ML)

Even-running sprinters often stretch out best to longer distances and this second-time starter should be poised for the mile-test off a debut third-place finish. Trainer Pletcher/Jockey Saez are winning 40% together over the past 60 days. Win bet.

Gulfstream Park Race 8 (4:11 pm ET)

#7 Starship Nala (10-1 ML)

Longshot look, trying to find a finisher in a race where heavily favored speedster Four Graces goes for an absolutely ice-cold Ian Wilkes barn. The chalk is vulnerable and should take some of the other speed down with her. Starship Nala has some races on her form where she's able to sit and pounce. The shorter distance today could help her finishing flair. Win-place bet.
