GULFSTREAM PARK Race #10 (THE MUCHO MACHO MAN STAKES)
Saturday 01/04 04:35 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (SOUTH BEND) (4-1) - Strong finisher won his first thre starts in Kentucky before tiring in a G2 going two-turns Nov 30 at Churchill Downs. He won a stakes at this distance Oct 27, has a fine series of works at the Palm Meadows Center, and he should get a fast/and or contested pace to rally into.
2nd pick: #2 (Chance It) (2-1) - State bred has gone 5-3-2-0 so far and has banked just under $400K. All of those starts have been been local and all against fellow Florida , breds. Working very fast for this attempt, he's a strong win candidate despite facing 'open' company for the first time.
3rd pick: #4 (As Seen On Tv) (7-2) - He won a $75K sprint stakes facing fellow Florida bred Nov 9 following a pair of fine efforts at Monmouth Park facing 'open' company. Colt has a speed/stalking style and is another that's been working nicely at the Palm Meadows Center.
4th pick: #3 (Smash Factor) (8-1) - Yet another Florida bred, he has early speed, but has been beaten by both 'Chance It' and 'As Sen On T V' in his last two starts. However, he's been showing steady improvement and the presence of Jose Ortiz for the first time is noted.
