Golden Gate Fields Race 1 (3:45 pm ET)

#2 Cartellate (2-1 ML)

The jockey-trainer tandem of Evin Roman and Jonathan Wong is 11-for-23 (48%) at Golden Gate since Feb. 21. They've been particularly strong during that time at sprint distances like this (7 wins, 2 seconds from 11 starters). Win bet.

Gulfstream Park Race 9 (5:22 pm ET)

#2 Freedom Matters (3-1 ML)

Trainer Kelly Breen busted out of a slump last week with a pair of winners and a runner-up from 5 starters, including a $34 winner. Freedom Matters makes his first start for Breen since being claimed. Win bet.
