Gulfstream Park Race 4 (2:37 pm ET)

#4 Joy in Grace (6-1 ML)

Trainer Dale Romans' runners have picked up steam in recent weeks with 4 wins since February 4. Romans and jockey Corey Lanerie teamed up 3 times last week with a win and 2 second-place finishes, including a 10-1 winner and 7-1 runner-up. Win-place bet. Daily double 4-4 to our second play of the day.

Gulfstream Park Race 5 (3:11 pm ET)

#4 Miss McKaela (3-1 ML)

Second or third in all 4 career starts, the addition of blinkers today can help her focus on finishing the deal late. The equipment change may also help her leave the gate quicker, and that would be a boost after being bumped at the start in each of her last 3 races. Win bet.
