Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.
Gulfstream Park Race 6 (2:58 pm ET)
#2 Holding Court (4-1 ML)
Kentucky raiders historically are strongest early in the Gulfstream Park Championship Meeting each December, and this one debuted second at Churchill Downs in his only start. Trainer Brian Lynch already has a victory via Churchill at the young Gulfstream meet. Win bet.
Tampa Bay Downs Race 7 (3:18 pm ET)
#10 Ride Em (10-1)
Longshot look for trainer Juan Arriaga, whose horses from Delaware Park have 4 wins, 1 second and 3 thirds from just 9 starts early in the Tampa Bay Downs winter season. Win-place bet.
