Xpressbet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his top plays for Thursday.
Gulfstream Park Race 4 // 2:35 pm ET
#4 Mia Camila (7-2 ML)
Slightly shorter distance can help her seal the deal late after two solid showings to open her career. Significant that jockey Jose Ortiz winds up here after having a hot hand with Antonio Sano's barn of late -- instead riding this one for another trainer vs. Sano's entry #8 Ligeia. Win bet. Daily Double to logical Race 5 favorite #2 Equal Pay to build out extra value.
Gulfstream Park Race 8 // 4:37 pm ET
#5 Doll Baby (3-1 ML)
Regally bred daughter of leading sire Tapit and champion sprint mare Groupie Doll won her debut and can make it 2-for-2 with a similar effort, much less needing to show improvement. She ran faster than these more experienced rivals in her first attempt. Trainer Ralph Nicks has 4 wins and 3 seconds from his last 14 local starters. Win bet.
