Gulfstream Park Race 7 (4:18 PM ET)

#1 Gangly (2-1 ML)

Trainer Bob Hess had his Gulfstream Park horses aimed for races in April last year after the completion of the Championship Meet and was rewarded for his patience and placement. Gangly exited a troubled start in February, but instead of racing back in March, was held out until the competition eases a bit in April when the snowbirds have headed back north. Win bet.

Golden Gate Fields Race 2 (4:54 PM ET)

#6 Terrys Tom Cat (7-2 ML)

This 10-year-old veteran comes off a victory last time against easier competition, but last year at age 9 was able to hold his winning form and win 3 of 4 starts while in the groove. Trainer Tim McCanna's barn has won a whopping 42% of its races since March 5 at Golden Gate. Win bet.

A Numbers Game: Reminder that when it comes to more popular teams (i.e. UConn), there’s not a huge rush to grab futures bets preseason. They were 18/1 then to win a national championship, and were 15/1 right before the tournament. View more tips.
